Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse is all set to deliver a keynote address on the challenges and opportunities of cryptocurrency utility and regulation at the upcoming Dubai Fintech Summit.
The event, which is slated to take place on May 8 and 9 at the Madinat Jumeirah, is expected to bring together more than 5,000 global fintech executives and enthusiasts from around the world.
Garlinghouse will be joined by CNBC reporter Dan Murphy to discuss the future of cryptocurrencies and the significance of regulatory frameworks in shaping the industry’s growth.
The Ripple CEO’s keynote address is expected to shed light on the current state of the cryptocurrency market, as well as the potential for innovation and development in the years to come.
Dubai, which is home to over a fifth of the world’s fintech businesses, aims to provide a platform for startups, investors, and industry leaders to capitalize on the expanding fintech market.
Ripple has been making significant inroads in Dubai over the past few years, with several banks and financial institutions in the region partnering with the company to leverage its blockchain-based payment solutions for cross-border transactions.
Although Ripple considered moving its global headquarters from San Francisco to Dubai, the company ultimately decided to keep its base in San Francisco.
However, its strong presence in Dubai and the Middle East highlights the region’s growing interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
