Why Bahrain?

  • Bahrain is interested in adopting Digital Currencies like Bitcoin amid a wider impetus toward a ‘Country Level’ adoption of Blockchain Technologies.


  • The Kingdom of Bahrain, a Constitutional Monarchy of over 30 Islands in the Persian Gulf, is taking a Bitcoin-friendly approach in its advent to become a FinTech Hub in the Region. Speaking at an ‘Innovation Forum’ in Bahrain’s Capital of Manama in the last quarter of 2017; Bahrain’s Economic Development Board (EDB) has revealed plans towards installing a Regulatory Sandbox in the Country. The EDB is one of the Government Leading Agencies that has been tasked to plan and implement the Country’s Economic Development Strategy.


  • In response to a query about Crypto Currencies at a different forum, it was stated that Bahrain as a country is open for Bitcoins.’


  • Notably, it was indicated that Bahrain’s Finance Ministry – the Country’s Financial Regulator has also shown keen interest in adopting Digital Currencies like Bitcoin. Intriguingly, the Government Official revealed that a Bitcoin Exchange Operator in Saudi Arabia made inquiries toward establishing a Bitcoin Exchange in Bahrain.


  • Furthermore, it was also revealed the extent to which Bahrain could adopt and use Digital Currencies by suggesting that Bahrain could also issue Bonds on a Digital Currency. All Digital Currency-related Developments in the Private Sector would occur in a Regulatory Sandbox recently unveiled by the Country’s Central Bank, a move toward endearing itself as the FinTech Hub in the Region.
