Crypto Companies Expand in the Middle East
Crypto companies are rapidly expanding in the Middle East countries as the adoption of digital assets rises in the region. Several regions have also attempted to court crypto investors by passing friendly regulation.
Recently, the world’s largest crypto exchange Binance said it obtained a license from the FSRA to operate in Abu Dhabi. The move came just a few weeks after Binance obtained a license to operate in Dubai.
Other crypto exchanges, including FTX and Bybit, have also received regulatory approval in Middle East territories such as Bahrain, in addition to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Moreover, crypto mining giants are looking to expand into the Middle East due to the availability of power resources and friendly regulations.
