Other blockchain-related news that shows the ecosystem's remarkable growth trajectory is the fact that the UAE-based Bitcoin miner Phoenix Group became the first crypto-related firm to go public on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange at the end of 2023. DFINITY, a Layer 1 protocol, set up their regional hub, ICP.Hub GCC, is an initiative to provide an access point for projects and developers in the region into the Internet Computer Protocols Ecosystem.

TOKEN2049, a global conference series, had a premier blockchain event in Dubai in April this year with over 400 side events and over 20,000 attendees. The Dubai AI & Web3 Festival planned for September 11-12, 2024 will be another feather in the cap of the city, as it posed to attract top global thought leaders to discuss the future of the Web3 and AI industry.

Ralf Glabischnig, co-founder of the Crypto Oasis said: "The Crypto landscape in the UAE and Middle East region is the fastest growing ecosystem worldwide. The government is doing for Blockchain what Silicon Valley did for tech. This past year has been nothing short of phenomenal for the Crypto Oasis Ecosystem.
