As supporters of the blockchain ecosystem, we have launched not only the UNLOCK media platform but also are providing services to help propel and build networks and relationships between all stakeholders in the blockchain arena.” He adds, “We are proud to be holding our second series of UNLOCK Blockchain forum in the UAE, as more and more blockchain use cases emerge across the governmental and private sector in the MENA region. We believe that despite the bear market conditions in the crypto space, there will be a lot of startups who are confident enough to forge forward with their solutions and offerings.
