“The World Trade Center will deliver and oversee a new world-class  regulatory framework of Virtual Asset legislative and enforcement  policies,” the statement read.  

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, who allegedly bought his first house in  Dubai this October, has shown significant interest in UAE’s aspirations  to lay the foundations for the crypto sector. He was among the first to  send his remarks on DWTC recent announcement.

DWTC is working in tandem with the private sector and relevant  entities to impose rigorous standards for investor protection,  anti-money laundering (AML), counter-terrorist financing (CFT)  compliance, and cross-border deal flow tracing, the Dubai Government  Media Office said.
