Economic Department of Dubai to Reveal Blockchain-Based Business Registry
October 8, 2019

The Department of Economic Development in Dubai has announced its move to a blockchain-based Unified Business Registry Platform (UBRP).

On October 7, it has been reported that according to a Saudi Gazette, the platform aims to improve the ease of doing business in Dubai and enable license issuers to manage trade licenses and corporate registries.

The Silicon Oasis Authority, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, and Dubai Multi Commodities Centre have already joined the platform. The UBRP eventually aims to host a total of 40 government entities. 

However, the solution is hosted on the blockchain-as-a-service platform called Dubai Pulse, which is a joint initiative of Smart Dubai — Dubai’s smart city initiative, and telecommunications firm Du.

Likewise, Dubai Pulse is also part of the broader Emirates Blockchain Strategy 2021, which was announced on April 2018. The UAE has set a goal to make sure that 50% of government transactions will be blockchain-based by 2021.

In July 2019, Cointelegraph reported that a partnership between the Dubai International Financial Centre, Mashreq Bank, and Norbloc, a fintech firm was planning to launch a blockchain-based ‘Know Your Customer (KYC)’ data-sharing association in 2020, with the intention to combine the KYC efforts of participating financial institutions and government bodies.
