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.

binance receives virtual assets license to operate in dubai

Global crypto exchange Binance has been granted a full operational license in Dubai, in a move that’s expected to accelerate digital asset adoption and strengthen the UAE’s regulatory landscape.

The virtual asset service provider license (VASP) was granted by the Dubai Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) and will allow Binance to extend its current range of services to retail investors, the company announced yesterday.

The move by Dubai authorities will be critical to Binance’s strategy of growing its user base globally. The crypto exchange expects to pass the 200 million user mark “quite shortly”, according to Richard Teng, the company’s CEO.

Once that milestone is achieved, Binance will have around twice as many users as rival platform Coinbase. Meanwhile, Crypto.com, another popular exchange with 80 million users, received a Dubai VASP license last week.

“We’re seeing much greater institutional adoption and institutional money coming into this space [along with] much greater regulatory clarity and a lot more jurisdictions approving [digital asset] products that bring in new investor classes,” Binance’s Richard Tang explained, adding: “As of now, we stand at about 5% crypto adoption globally, but that will become much faster moving forward”.

Dubai and the UAE are extremely supportive of technologies like digital assets, and have already launched initiatives to boost adoption. The UAE has ambitious plans to become a world leader in the crypto economy of the future, with Dubai in particular being noteworthy for passing a new law to regulate virtual assets to support investors and exchanges.

“Global crypto regulation is currently showing diverging signs. Some developed countries have long suffered from crypto-related frauds and illegal exchanges. On the other hand, emerging nations like the UAE and Singapore have enacted crypto laws at faced pace,” said Vijay Valecha, chief investment officer of Dubai-based Century Financial.

As the UAE gears up to become one of the fastest-growing crypto capitals worldwide, investors and talent are flocking to places like Dubai. During 2023, the Emirates as a whole realized $204 million in capital gains from cryptocurrency investments, according to blockchain data analysts Chainalysis.
