Cryptocurrency Venture Komainu Achieves Full VARA License in Dubai

After securing its MVP license in November 2022, Komainu successfully concluded the final phase of VARA’s licensing procedure nearly 10 months later. Komainu, a collaborative effort between Nomura and cryptocurrency enterprises CoinShares and Ledger, has been granted a comprehensive operational permit from Dubai’s Virtual Asset Regulatory Authority (VARA).

The United Arab Emirates has embraced advancements in the realm of cryptocurrencies, bolstered by government funding and cryptocurrency-friendly regulations designed to foster entrepreneurial endeavors. Acquiring a VARA license in Dubai follows a three-tiered process, mandating that cryptocurrency exchanges meet the criteria for provisional endorsement, a minimum viable product (MVP) license, and ultimately a full-fledged market product license.

Komainu is additionally subject to regulation by the Jersey Financial Services Commission and maintains its headquarters there. The issuance of VARA’s license empowers Komainu to present its complete array of custody services, including institutional staking and collateral management facilitated by its collateral management service known as Komainu Connect.

Recently, Dubai made a strategic decision to heavily subsidize business licenses for artificial intelligence (AI) and Web3 enterprises. The Dubai AI and Web 3.0 Campus unveiled this initiative, aiming to subsidize licenses for companies intending to establish their presence within the city. The issuance of these licenses will be overseen by the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), as the city endeavors to attract global talent and a diverse pool of investors.

Noteworthy cryptocurrency exchanges that have previously achieved analogous operational standing encompass Binance, Bybit, Laser Digital Middle East, BitOasis (presently suspended), OKX, Crypto.com, FTX (previously revoked), and Huobi.
