Virtuzone has just announced its latest partnership with Binance, the blockchain ecosystem, and crypto infrastructure provider, will make them the first company of their kind in the UAE to accept digital currency payments. The company will soon begin using the Binance Pay platform to forge ahead with its ambitious plans, helping to fuel further growth of the nation’s already buzzing startup scene.

“The partnership we have forged with Binance reflects our commitment to continue our pursuit of innovative solutions that will positively impact the UAE startup community while expanding the future possibilities and opportunities for Virtuzone and its clients. Collaborating with a renowned Web 3.0 technology leader like Binance puts us at the forefront of digital transformation and the Fourth Industrial Revolution across the UAE and the region,” says Neil Petch, Chairman, and Co-founder of Virtuzone.

Although Dubai is already making a name for itself as a crypto-friendly startup spot, the Virtuzone and Binance partnership aims to turn the entire UAE into a hub for crypto projects and Web 3.0 development. More and more businesses are relocating to the region each year due to its crypto policies and ease of doing business, and the recent pairing goes hand-in-hand with this trend.

Binance Pay allows borderless, contactless, and secure crypto payments and transfers. The platform will enable companies to accept crypto or regular payments without intermediaries. The list of leading UAE businesses that have integrated Binance into their payment portfolios is currently proliferating, including the likes of JA Resorts & Hotels and Majid Al Futtaim — which now means consumers can use Binance Pay in 29 retail malls and 13 hotels.

The Virtual Asset Regulatory Authority (VARA) of the UAE recently rolled out new regulatory guidelines on virtual asset promotions, marketing, and advertising. Binance intends to create a legal framework that maintains tight security without stifling innovation or economic development.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
