The UAE is one of the world's most dynamic and fastest-growing economies and the largest country in the Arabian Gulf region. And Abu Dhabi is one of its key financial centers.

Igor Glavatsky, a PointPay representative, attended Abu Dhabi Finance Week at the Abu Dhabi International Financial Centre in mid-November. The event allowed PointPay to discuss strategic partnerships with global financial institutions. In the following report, Igor shares his impressions of the trip.

Blockchain technology remains a hot topic in the financial world. The event took place throughout the week, but we were most interested in the Fintech and Crypto day sessions.

Every day different speakers took the stage. Among the most recognizable were Changpeng Zhao (Binance), David Chaum (XX Network / Elixrr), Mike Novogratz (Galaxy), and Robert Mitchnick (Blackrock).

For example, David Chaum, an American computer scientist and cryptographer who had a major impact on cryptography and privacy-preserving technologies and is considered a pioneer in the field, gave a speech.
