Investing in Blockchain Pioneer of Dubai is Now Possible – Burency is Seizing the Initiative

Published

on

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is among the world’s richest countries, thanks to the abundance of oil deposits in the region. The revenue streams of the UAE has seen some diversification in the past. Prior to the discovery of oil in the UAE in the 1950s, its economy was primarily dependent on fishing and thus largely unsustainable. In its doggedness to move the country forward, today, the global hub for trade and commerce is now domiciled in the UAE.

On one hand, development around the world is moving at lightspeed, as data is fast becoming the new oil in today’s world; nothing works efficiently without data. On the other hand, blockchain technology is taking the lead in enabling efficient data transmission and thus impacting how the world conducts business today. For years, UAE is known to be a first-mover across revolutionary business domains and technologies. Needless to state, the world capital of blockchain is now rising in the Middle East.

UAE is a staunch supporter of blockchain technology, this became evident after the launch of Emirates Blockchain Strategy 2021. This strategy is targeted at capitalizing on the blockchain technology to transform 50 percent of government transactions onto the blockchain platform by 2021. These initiatives are often influenced and encouraged thanks to its government and investment-friendly business environment.

This initiative will eventually result in an impressive cost savings of AED 11 billion in transactions and documents processed routinely, 398 million printed documents annually, 77 million work hours annually. While other nations are busy inhibiting the development of blockchain technology, the UAE at the same time is leveraging on it to foster economic development.

Dubbed as the city of the future”, Dubai, in 2017 announced its plans to have robot cops, flying taxis and autonomous vehicles on its roads in the coming years. Now, Dubai, a member state of the seven emirates of the UAE is on a mission to become the world’s first blockchain-powered government.

By 2020, the emirate wants all visa applications, bill payments and license renewals, which account for over 100 million documents each year, to be transacted digitally using blockchain. This and many other reasons have summed up in creating an enabling environment for blockchain startups to strive better in the middle east.

Recently, IBM opened up a start-up space in Dubai whose mission is to encourage smaller companies to use IBM hardware and cloud services to experiment with blockchain applications. The UAE Exchange has also recently partnered with RippleNet Network, a provider of blockchain technology. Ripple is expected to be assisting the UAE exchange by providing real-time, quick and high-speed payment both local and cross-border payment.

Due to blockchain immutability and the untamperable nature of data stored on blockchain, real estate is taking its own share of the disruptive power of blockchain. Dubai Land Department (DLD, in October, launched a blockchain-powered system to help secure financial transactions, electronically record all real estate contracts, and connect homeowners and tenants to property-related billers, such as electrical, water and telecommunications utilities.

Many other startups and blockchain ecosystems are seizing this opportunity to leverage the power of blockchain to make the world a better place. One of such innovative companies that have grazed the blockchain stratosphere in Dubai is Burency.

What is Burency?

By virtue of building numerous projects in the UAE and pitching several blockchain meetups and conferences in the Middle East, Mohammad Mazen understands the business environment surrounding this region. There is a popular norm that says, the expertise of any team has a direct reflection on the success of the underlying project. This is the case with Burency.

The company is positioning itself among the first-movers in the ever-growing high-potential Middle Eastern market. The market at present is highly underserved with interest outstripping the number of exchanges, mining facilities and blockchain centers available.

According to the Burency whitepaper, the company is launching a trusted state-of-the-art cryptocurrency exchange whose features are considered to be more superior to any available alternative in the Middle East. Burency is well-positioned as a blockchain giant in the Middle-East as UAE takes the lead in global blockchain adoption.
