Our Mission

The Bitcoin Association Arabia is the first interest group in the gulf countries solely dedicated to the principles of Bitcoin. Its purpose is to promote Bitcoin Adoption through a range of activities, including events, educational initiatives, and both public and private advocacy.

Bitcoin Oasis is our biannual flagship event focused on knowledge sharing on the potential the Bitcoin ecosystem offers to the Gulf region, and for Bitcoin businesses to explore the vast opportunities these unique countries present.
