“I’ve been waiting for something like this. The current monetary regime (Bretton-Woods II) appears to be quite unstable to defection; given their financial savvy and the monarchical nature of their governments, the UAE was high on the list of places I thought might go first. Now all they need to do is understand that, for their purposes, blockchain = Bitcoin”
In addition, the government will be supporting university courses specializing in blockchain technology and subjects related to it by using training courses, workshops, events, and reports.
