With the global economic outlook not showing any signs of recovery, there are increasingly many people who are looking to diversify their investment portfolios to protect their money from the painful bite of inflation.
Despite the risks associated with them, cryptocurrencies can provide a better return on investment than the stock market, but getting started with them can be a challenge.
Now, Sarwa, a personal finance and investment platform, is making crypto trading more accessible with the launch of Sarwa Crypto, a commission-free trading platform with support for Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash.
By launching Sarwa Crypto, Sarwa Digital Wealth (Capital) Limited, the company behind the platform, gives its users even more options to invest their money.
“Having access to investing in a simple, regulated, and low-cost environment should be a priority and available for all in the region,” said Mark Chahwan, co-founder and CEO of Sarwa. “There is a significant amount of interest around cryptocurrency in the GCC, even with the recent market development. Yet you didn’t have a platform that offered a centralized view of stocks, ETFs, and crypto in one safe, innovative and easy-to-use app. You do now.”
In addition to making it easy to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, Sarwa comes with a number of useful features to help its users trade more comfortably, including daily and weekly investing news, watchlists, as well as limit and stop orders.
The platform has been designed from the ground up with security in mind, and it protects user data with 256-bit encryption. What’s also reassuring is that Sarwa is regulated by both the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) and the Financial Regulatory Services Authority (FSRA).
For its services, Sarwa charges its users a flat fee of 0.85%, 0.7%, or 0.5% per year, depending on how much they trade, and there are no hidden surprise fees or lock-in periods to worry about.
UAE Comes Out Strongly In Guinness World Records 2023
Guinness, the renowned cataloger of record-breaking events, has released its latest annual, after sifting through 40,000 applications — and the Arab world is heavily featured.
Guinness World Records, the authority on record-breaking global achievements, has just announced its latest release, “Guinness World Records 2023 (GWR2023),” which will be available online and in physical stores across the Arab region from today.
As usual, GWR 2023 features all of the latest achievements from around the world (and space!), with special features and updated graphics to bring the stories to life.
So why the interest in the latest Guinness installment? Well, it turns out the Arab Region is strongly represented in the book, with more than 50 records featured in the new edition, which is no mean feat considering the volume of competition.
“We’ve sifted through nearly 40,000 record applications over the past year to bring you Guinness World Records 2023. People from all walks of life continue to be fascinated by extremes, and we’ve received claims from across the planet – indeed, even from space! This is why I’ve said the new edition is out of this world,” says Craig Glenday, Guinness Editor in Chief.
Of interest to readers of this platform, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates both get to flex their record-breaking muscles.
Saudi Arabia claims the title of “Largest LED Structure and Suspended Ornament” courtesy of the Noor Riyadh Festival, as well as other weird and wonderful titles, including the “Largest Lego Formula 1 Car”, as well as perhaps more prestigious honors, such as “Largest Mirrored Building”, “Largest Clock Face”, “Tallest Lighthouse” and the “Largest Geodesic Dome”.
Not to be outdone, the UAE has claimed several humanitarian record-breaking titles, including the “Longest Video Livestream” (by The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives and pan Arab influencer Hassan Suleiman), the “Largest Donation for Medical Treatment”, and the “Most Awareness Ribbons Made in One Hour”.
On the tech front, the UAE also claims several prestigious firsts, including “First 3D-Printed Laboratory”, while the world-renowned Burj Khalifa hangs on to its title of “World’s Tallest Building”.
