Banks and financial regulators in the Middle East have been slower to embrace cryptocurrency than Europe and the US. Before the pandemic, the Middle East’s crypto market was still in its infancy. But following two years of rapid developments, 2022 will be the year that the building excitement around the potential for cryptocurrency translates into industry leadership. Over the past 12 months, we have seen increasing signs that cryptocurrencies in the Middle East are evolving from a fledgling concept to an everyday part of life. BANKTECH meetup will provide bank executives with powerful insights on current trends and highlight innovative technology to help today’s financial institutions transform themselves to serve consumers now and into the future.
