The DMCC Crypto Center provides a co-working space for entrepreneurs and a number of incubator and accelerator programs.

DMCC participated in the development of a reliable, forward-looking and supportive regulatory environment for the crypto firms operating in Dubai. The UAE Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) shall regulate the activities that one carries out within the Free Zone and include an exchange of Crypto Assets.

In March 2021, DMCC and SCA entered into a memorandum on understanding to establish a legal and regulatory framework for the companies offering, issuing, listing and trading in Crypto Assets at the DMCC.
