Other cryptocurrency exchanges that have a virtual asset to operate in Dubai include Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, and, a Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange powered by the CRO token.

“Virtual assets such as cryptocurrency and blockchain have changed finance forever,” said H.E.

So far, the effort is bearing fruit because the Middle East is one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrency markets in the world, accounting for 6.6 percent of global cryptocurrency activity.

In the UAE alone, the digital economy contributes around 4.3 percent to the gross domestic product, and the number is expected to increase as more and more exchanges like Bybit take advantage of the favorable regulatory environment.
