Spend on the technology in MENA is set to double this year, reaching $80m (£60.7m), and when it comes to members among the blockchain top-flight, it’s hardly a surprise that glinting desert city of Dubai stands among them.
“One of the main things that people are aware of is the fact that the government in Dubai Is seeking to be the first to have all of its government-related operations on the blockchain – this is a mandate that they seek to bring into fruition by 2020,” said Anthony Lauriola, COO of full-service blockchain solutions company Block Gemini.
