DUBAI BLAZES THE TRAIL..................Issues Its Own State Cryptocurrency - emCash


Dubai in United Arab Emirates has become the first country to officially launched its own cryptocurrency called emCash, according to announcements by local news media outlets. The cryptocurrency would be used for payment of governmental and nongovernmental services.

According to Ali Ibrahim, Deputy Director General of Dubai Economy, the token will be considered legal tender “for various government and non-government services, from their daily coffee and children’s school fee to utility charges and money transfers.”

Dubai embracing Blockchain technology
The flexibility and convenience of cryptocurrencies makes the solution a win-win for Dubai. The government is strongly pro-Blockchain and sees it as the next major wave of paradigm changing technologies, and wants to be forward-thinking in adoption. According to Ibrahim:

“The fast-paced environment and incredible willingness to adopt innovative technology has made Dubai the perfect place for us to do business. This project is a great example of the ambition we have met here, together we are essentially creating a whole new economic ecosystem. It will harness Blockchain technology to make financial transactions cheaper, faster and more secure while demonstrating the huge advantages of embracing this technology for governments, business and customers alike.”

Blockchain technology, as a system for a number of various services, has been widely embraced in the country. Dubai is seeking to become a fintech hub for the eastern world and has even recently signed deals to allow for property sales entirely in Bitcoin.

Recently, the world’s first self-flying taxi was tested in September, 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.  

The unmanned flying vehicle looks and flies similarly to a helicopter, except it is smaller with only two seats and has 18 rotors. It has a maximum airspeed of 100 kilometers per hour and can fly up to 30 minutes. It is also equipped with back-up batteries, rotors, communication network, and parachutes for emergency purposes and to make its passengers feel safe. The self-flying taxi was created by Volocopter, a German drone company.
