About this Episode

Today Ahmed is joined by Dr. Marwan Al-Zarouni who gives a low down on the Dubai Blockchain Centre and generally what Dubai is up to in the blockchain space.

They discuss:
• His very interesting flippening moment (jargon for how someone got interested in bitcoin and blockchain)
• Advice on how to the enter the industry
• Different applications utilised by blockchain and the Dubai Blockchain Strategy

They also delve into how the Dubai Blockchain Center is helping Dubai become a global blockchain capital and how blockchain entrepreneurs can get support from the Center. Also, cryptocurrency regulation is a hot topic where they discuss how the UAE is fairing against the world, especially on the back of a new crypto OTC license that has recently been made available in the region allowing for regulated crypto OTC desks.

All of the above and more will be on this episode of Encrypted Interviews!
