He remarked, “Following its launch in 2020, the platform has become increasingly crucial not only in simplifying the procedures for opening bank accounts for investors, but also in enabling banks to digitally receive verified KYC data. This initiative has a positive impact in attracting business and on the global ease of doing business ranking of Dubai and the UAE.” Abdulla Hassan, the Dubai Economy Corporate Sector CEO attributed the growth to the tool’s efficiency. It has also enabled financial institutions to digitize one of their most important requirements.

On its part, the DIFC pledged to continue supporting emerging technologies such as blockchain so as to position Dubai as the go-to financial hub globally. The Dubai Financial Services Authority has also recently suggested security token regulation. The regulator is currently accepting public feedback on the proposal until April 29. If adopted, the new regulations will allow Dubai companies to process direct payments in security tokens from prospective clients.

The UAE has continued to push for innovation in the blockchain and digital currency industry, and Dubai has been leading this commitment. As CoinGeek reported, Dubai-based license bureau KIKLABB started accepting digital currencies recently as payment for visa and trade license fees.
