Truthfully, cryptocurrency has been gaining good traction and adoption across the globe.

Around 2020-2022, Web3 in the middle-east went through a significant and worthwhile transformation from a small bourgeoning industry to a headliner in the mainstream media. UAE for instance saw an exponential increase in the number of crypto businesses while securing a 10% of global transactions.  

In the same UAE, it is thrilling to discover crypto literacy is being taught in schools, this is clearly a concerted move towards leveraging on this technology as the job hub come 2040. 

Other gulf countries are following in the footsteps, countries like Oman made its debut by coming into the crypto scene with a grand infrastructure, the country has about $1.1B invested in crypto mining, this singular move has attracted worthwhile foreign countries. 

All of these strides taken by these MENA countries sparks some form of optimism in users along the ETF approval and upcoming Bitcoin halving as the major catalysts of the next bull run.

Similarly, These actions taken by MENA serve a role globally considering how all the necessary ingredients are inherently available to its crypto savvy geeks; rapidly developing infrastructure, favourable policy making, and welcoming users sentiment. This has led blockchain technology to find its footing in this part of world.

Through all of these, Bitget has been greatly instrumental to the growth of blockchain in MENA, it has provided some of the products that seek to ease crypto participation. To mention a few, Bitget Wallet is heralded as the largest wallet in Asia with about 19 million users. 

As per a study by bitget of how blockchain savvy MENA has become, the Managing Director of Bitget; Gracy Chen has proposed to scale the company’s team and hire professionals across the region to fill a range of mid and back office roles.

This effort is made in a bid to facilitate a profound and robust cryptocurrency adoption, looking at all of these, i’ll contend in a nutshell that, the future of crypto development in the middle east seems ever promising.

    • I have not been a fan of either of exchanges and wallets native tokens but would wanna explore it now. I took interest from the current hype around BNB, OKB and BGB. These tokens particularly BNB and BGB has shown strength which is obviously due to increase in demand to take part in the most of the launchpool. BNB rose almost 80% in the past 1 year, BGB was on the spotlight with about 190% in a year. OKB may not be left out due to it's potential but has made any significant movement recently. Wallet tokens on the hand have also been doing well but may not be compared to Centralized exchanges imho; I have also monitored few wallet particularly trust wallet and C98 wallet. My best guess is we could be seeing the wallet tokens making impressive price action as we approach post halving due to increase in transactions and I wonder if any one here is considering the prospect BWB token for Bitget wallet. Launching pretty soon and airdrop participation in play. I would appreciate your speculative opinion on it potentials.
    • In the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, playing by the rules isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a must for staying in the game. Most major centralized exchanges (CEXs) strive to adhere to these regulations, implementing measures to prevent money laundering and illicit activities. However, a recent controversy has emerged with BingX, a top CEX, defying US sanctions by allowing Iranian users full access to its platform. BingX facilitates Iranian Rial trading, directly violating US sanctions. They allow Iranian users to trade cryptocurrencies without KYC verification. This, along with offering peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using Iranian fiat currency, further raises red flags. This incident is reminiscent of the past troubles faced by giants like Binance, who were caught facilitating transactions for sanctioned individuals, resulting in a $4.5 billion plea deal with US authorities in 2023. The question remains: will this defiance by BingX lead to its downfall? Regulatory bodies in the US, like the SEC or DOJ, might take action.However, the severity of the situation raises questions about the long-term viability of the exchange and whether it may face the prospect of closure or severe penalties for its actions. As governments grapple with the complexities of digital assets, CEXs that prioritize expansion over compliance will likely face increasing scrutiny and potential consequences.  
    • The exchange continues to offers it's  users significant opportunities through its ecosystem products like PoolX and Launchpool. By participating in these platforms, users can benefit from various services such as staking, liquidity mining, and accessing new project opportunities. PoolX enables users to stake their assets and earn rewards through flexible investment options. Launchpool provides users with the chance to participate in early-stage project offerings.
