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 It’s a great historical document showing how this all came about and what might be coming next.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