The Emirates Group of Companies is headquartered in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, and consists of several licensed and regulated legal entities that meet the challenging demands of the current regulatory landscape in the blockchain space. The group was founded in July 2014 as a technology and advisory provider focusing on the digitalization of traditional legacy businesses by making efficient use of emerging technology such as blockchain and artificial intelligence.


Note: Over the years the group advised multiple local and international corporations, Governments and Regulators, and built several successful projects in the digital assets space.

Digital assets exchange platform for all

In early 2017, having identified a gap in the market that represented a genuine need, the Group started working on a digital assets exchanger that allowed users to easily and securely buy and sell cryptocurrencies and non-security tokens such as protocol, utility, payment, and commodity tokens. 


The digital assets exchanger, called Bitcoin Middle East Exchange, or BitMeEx, was successfully launched in early 2018. Our community of users across the Middle East and globally quickly recognized the benefits of the simple and secure interface, particularly because of the service localization that we offered.

Trading platform for professionals

In September 2019, due to market demands, we added a professional version of the trading platform based on the input from our community as well as the lessons that we had learned from the first stage of the project. 


Note: We have also built an investment platform focusing on tokenizing securities such as equity, debt instruments, and units in funds, as well as commodities and other real-world assets. 

A roadmap for the future

At the same time, we developed a robust roadmap concentrating on further developing our infrastructure to support our ambitious mission, which is to become the Infrastructure for the New Digital Economy interconnecting the Middle East with Africa, Asia, and Europe.
