The UAE is known around the world as a state with a high standard of living, but in recent years this opinion has been reinforced by the consistent development in the field of cryptocurrency. While other states have not yet accepted or started to use the virtual assets, the UAE is becoming the capital of the blockchain and is calling on the country's central bank to explore the digital assets due to their growing influence on the global financial market and cooperation with especially sought-after currencies, such as Ethereum.

Despite its progressive outlook towards cryptocurrencies, the UAE does not create unnecessary risks and strives to protect bank users by ensuring complete data confidentiality and financial preservation. To this end, three large organizations have been established in the UAE that regulate cryptocurrencies in accordance with local laws: FSRA (Financial Services Regulatory Authority), SCA (Securities and Commodities Authority) and DFSA (Dubai Financial Services Agency). This approach provides an increase in the number of not only average Ethereum holders, but also wealthier clients around the world who begin to transfer finances to UAE banks.

To buy digital currency, a user can use the exchange platforms that cooperate with the banks around the world. Below you will find the instructions on how to purchase cryptocurrency on the Itez service
