Riyadh and Abu Dhabi collaborate on new cryptocurrency


Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have announced an agreement to cooperate on the creation of a cryptocurrency, Emirate News Agency reported.



The Executive Committee of the Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council has held a meeting in UAE capital Abu Dhabi, with 16 members in total from both countries, in order to discuss the join initiatives in the Strategy of Resolve.

The Strategy of Resolve is comprised of seven initiatives, including civil aviation, financial awareness youth training, and the development of a cross-border digital currency.

According to the article, the cryptocurrency “will be strictly targeted for banks at an experimental phase with the aim of better understanding the implications of blockchain technology and facilitating cross-border payments.”

The project will also research the effect of a central currency on financial policies, Yahoo reported.

The initiative reportedly seeks to protect customer interest, create standards for technology,



and consider the cybersecurity risks while determining the impact of central currencies on monetary policies.
