Expanding Presence with New License and Bahrain Office

Founded in 2016, BitOasis has established itself as the go-to platform for both retail and institutional investors in the GCC and MENA regions. The platform has processed over $6 billion in trading volume and raised more than $40 million from leading regional and global investors. BitOasis’ user-friendly interface and robust security measures have made it a trusted name in the cryptocurrency space. A leader in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, BitOasis secured a new license and launched an office in the Kingdom of Bahrain, marking a pivotal point in its strategic expansion across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries with a focus on compliance and regulatory collaboration.

A Major Milestone in BitOasis’ Expansion

The new license in Bahrain underscores BitOasis’ commitment to maintaining the highest standards of regulatory compliance. By aligning with Bahrain’s forward-thinking regulatory framework, the platform aims to strengthen its presence in the GCC and cater to the growing demand for virtual assets in the region. This expansion is a testament to the company’s proactive approach in fostering trust and transparency within the digital assets market.

Growth of Virtual Assets in the MENA Market

The MENA market has witnessed remarkable growth in the virtual assets sector. In 2021-2022, the market emerged as the fastest-growing globally, with a total value of $566 billion received. This momentum continued into 2022-2023, with the market maintaining a strong performance and receiving $389.8 billion. The high levels of trust and interest among retail consumers, coupled with the increasing involvement of professional and institutional market segments, highlight the robust growth and potential of the virtual assets industry in the region.

Trust in Cryptocurrencies

The UAE has positioned itself as one of the top markets globally for trust in cryptocurrencies. In 2022, 40 percent of consumers in the UAE reported trusting virtual assets, while 67 percent expressed interest in investing in cryptocurrencies. This high level of trust and growing interest underscores the UAE’s pivotal role in the global cryptocurrency landscape and sets a positive precedent for the broader MENA region.

Growing Interest in Digital Assets

Investor interest in digital assets continues to rise in the region. More than three-quarters of regional investors are considering investing in digital assets, reflecting a broad acceptance and confidence in this new asset class. Furthermore, 43 percent of respondents estimate that their clients’ exposure to digital assets will range between 5-10 percent over the next three years, indicating a significant shift towards digital asset investment.

BitOasis’ Commitment to Compliance

It has consistently demonstrated its commitment to compliance and regulatory standards. It was the first virtual assets trading platform to be registered with the United Arab Emirates Financial Intelligence Unit. Additionally, it has collaborated with the UAE’s Executive Office of Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing to conduct the authority’s national risk assessment on virtual assets. The platform also announced a partnership with Dubai Police to enhance awareness and knowledge sharing on virtual assets, further solidifying its position as a leader in the industry.


The launch of BitOasis’ new office in Bahrain and the acquisition of a new license represent a significant advancement in the company’s expansion strategy across the GCC. This move not only reinforces BitOasis’ commitment to compliance and regulatory collaboration but also highlights the growing trust and interest in virtual assets in the MENA region. As it continues to innovate and expand, it is poised to play a crucial role in shaping the future of the digital assets market in the Middle East and beyond.


We are excited about BitOasis’ expansion into Bahrain, marking a strategic milestone that showcases its commitment to regulatory compliance and industry leadership. Their proactive engagement with regulators and emphasis on transparency set a precedent in the digital assets sector. The MENA region’s growing trust and interest in virtual assets highlight BitOasis’ pivotal role, in offering a secure platform for innovative digital asset trading. We believe their expansion will bolster the regional ecosystem and accelerate cryptocurrency adoption, positioning the MENA region as a global hub for digital innovation and financial technology.
