Low Taxes, Business-Friendly Regulations Attract Crypto Firms to UAE

The UAE has emerged as a jurisdiction fostering crypto activity in recent years. This can be attributed to the nation’s evolving regulatory framework. In 2022, Dubai implemented a novel regulatory structure aiming to position the Emirate as a global center for crypto operations.

This framework seeks to provide transparency and security for both issuers of digital assets and service providers. Consequently, several crypto businesses relocated to the UAE, drawn to its low-tax environment and regulations conducive to business. This trend is particularly pronounced given the stricter stance US regulators have adopted toward crypto firms.

Later this month, Dubai will host a gathering of industry veterans. This assembly aims to foster consensus among web3 stakeholders to establish efforts between decentralized projects and centralized exchanges.
