Background on the Dubai Blockchain Vision

One of the exciting initiatives we’ve been working on over the last few years has been the development of blockchain ecosystem in the UAE.

This all started at a small conference in December, 2014, then lead through a series of meetings, councils and pilot projects to the launch of the Dubai Blockchain Strategy in October, 2016.

Here’s a short talk I gave in March, 2017 at the World Blockchain Forum on the background of blockchain in the UAE and the strategic vision that drives it. It talks a bit about Dubai’s history, about the challenges we face as a global civilisation in the 21st century, and about the way that the UAE’s leadership approaches these challenges.

It’s a great historical document showing how this all came about and what might be coming next.

A more detailed discussion on the strategy itself can be found here.
