Dubai just issued a consolation paper aiming at regulating service providers wishing to deal with/in "crypto tokens" https://dfsaen.thomsonreuters.com/s...e_store/CP143_Regulation_of_Crypto_Tokens.pdf

Interesting to those that wish to start a business in this sector. For the retails... does this have any effect on individuals using a foregin exchange to trade their own funds? Does this effect the possibility of buying property with crypto?

This is purely for companies issuing crypto, managing, creating, buying and selling of virtual assets.

At least they have something in place but also you cover yourself with your terms and conditions. This is simply been put in place to ensure there is no bad press about DUBAI regarding crypto project scams.

It's a trusted jurisdiction due to the laws and the punishment if you do not abide by them are very heavy. So it would be looked at more seriously than other offshore jurisdictions.

Just these two statements make absurd for any company to issue tokens there.
I guess traders and exchanges can work with such rules, but asset tokens issuing - ICO/IDO/IEO - is dead in Dubai.

Well that's actually a good thing. Most of them are cash grabs anyway. The longer they stay out of Dubai the better for the legit traders and those seeking to cash out tax free.

When you go public - IPO - company is liable to the investors, and you do not guarantee any “price stability”, so these rules are a non-sense.

Decentralized non KYC would solve, at leat partially, this issue, wouldn't they?
Yeah, but it is going from a ruled af to a ruleless situation. I’d prefer a set of intelligent and practical rules, but I am guessing is too much asking.

Are you sure it does not have any effect on randoms residents which day trade crypto ?
Here seem to say otherwise : New Dubai law: All you need to know about virtual assets and regulations

Will all randoms residents of uae still be able to day trade crypto without any registration or tax ?
Will the platforms outside uae be still available to uae residents ? binance etc

Binnace have moved HQ to UAE the CEO now lives in Dubai in an amazing penthouse.

He does not want to end up like Jack Ma, who has been missing for months.

Retail traders should not be affected, this is more along the lines of encouraging projects to move over to the Dubai and give confidence via the jurisdictions. Marshall Island, BVI, Cayman, and the rest have been demonised. UAE is seen as an Eldarado to most people.

The UAE is quite liberal so for now you can use whichever platform you want.

There is some form of tax aimed at this move which will become apparent soon.

Like banks and insurance companies in Dubai pay tax @20%. This partly due to international credit rating and of course revenue for the government.

Retail clients won't be taxed but project owners will.

You have to pay to play at some point.

Let’s see what the actual details are. The wording in the law might refer to all individuals… don’t know how I’d feel about that.
