The event is sponsored by Digital Ascension Group, an organization founded in 2022 that offers comprehensive services for family offices.

This event signifies a significant step in the deepening relationship between the United States and the United Arab Emirates. The UAE government’s proactive stance in developing a regulatory framework has played a crucial role in advancing digital assets on a global scale.

Said Edward Cullen, who also serves as the CEO of Crescite Innovation Corporation, “The USA-UAE Alliance™ stands as a testament to the collaborative efforts of international stakeholders leveraging blockchain technologies for economic advancement and societal welfare.”

Hester Peirce, Commissioner of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), spoke at the organization’s event in Washington DC last month, marking the launch of the blockchain business forum.
