Roland Berger partners with Crypto Oasis to boost crypto economy in the Gulf region

    13 Jun 2022

    Roland Berger, a global strategy and management consultancy, has partnered with Crypto Oasis to join its efforts to boost the Gulf region’s blockchain and decentralized technologies ecosystem. The news comes two weeks after Crypto Oasis said it has already identified over 1,000 blockchain organizations in the UAE amid the exponential growth of the ecosystem, updating its target to over 1,500 organizations by the end of the year.

    As Gulf Business reported, Roland Berger has strong capabilities in helping clients to develop specific crypto economy strategies and identify use cases and investment opportunities that are critical for future strategic positioning. The consultancy is the strategic advisor behind some of the biggest recent projects in the region, including the strategy for a large Bitcoin mining facility and the setup of tokenized green asset exchange.

    The firm is handling its global crypto economy advisory out of the UAE, and with Crypto Oasis gearing up to achieve its target of identifying 1,500 organizations in the ecosystem by the end of the year, this partnership is key for both companies, particularly as they look at leveraging blockchain and decentralized technologies.

    “Crypto Oasis has a strong ecosystem comprising a network of organizations that are breakthrough innovators and are leapfrogging ahead. We have witnessed their explosive growth in the past few months,” said Pierre Samaties, one of the partners in charge of leading the global crypto economy team for Roland Berger. “As we assist companies in their journey towards the crypto economy, it is vital to have access to the latest innovation and talent in this fast-moving space.”

    Crypto Oasis founder Ralf Glabischnig added: “We are delighted to welcome Roland Berger as our newest global strategic partner. Our ecosystem members will have access to their world-class management consultancy that will support them as they embrace the opportunities to transform their business and utilize blockchain solutions.”

    “With Roland Berger’s strong presence among governments and corporations, we expect this partnership to help us develop meaningful connections with them. As they step further into the blockchain economy we will be working together to release thought leadership reports to further educate and inform the market of this ever-growing and evolving ecosystem,” he commented.

    In addition, partner and global co-head of the Crypto Economy team, Feroz Sanaulla, stated:

    “We believe that with Crypto Oasis’ core values of infrastructure, talent, and capital, we can integrate alliances in their unique Ecosystem and transform the crypto economy landscape.”

    Crypto Oasis, ​​the expansive ecosystem of blockchain-related organizations initiated out of the UAE, is growing faster than anticipated. The goal of 1,000 blockchain organizations in the ecosystem, which was originally set for the end of 2022, has already been met seven months ahead of schedule.

    “This is an exciting time for us as we exceed expectations considerably month after month. Our target for the year has been achieved already, and we’re anticipating exceptional growth in the future. The first months of 2022 have already shown that the key pillars of growing and building the ecosystem are talent, capital, and infrastructure,” Ralf Glabischnig said last month.

    “We believe we are still at an early stage, but with the speed of development and growth that we see day-by-day across the community in this region, we look forward to further advancing the blockchain economy in the Middle East.”

    “The growth of the Crypto Oasis ecosystem will continue exponentially in the coming months as we can witness how regulators in the region are welcoming innovation and disruption, making it simpler for blockchain-related companies to secure license and operate. The revised expectation for the number of organizations in the UAE ecosystem by the end of 2022 is now 1,500 organizations from the 1,000 already achieved,” he added.
