With DMCC’s regional management and world-class infrastructure, and SecureGold’s digital prowess, we sit up for making the UAE a hub for gold traders throughout the area and accelerating the digital gold ecosystem within the UAE.”
Gold bars will be physically stored in secure vaults, and verified by warrants issued on DMCC’s Tradeflow platform, a transparent central registry of ownership for gold and commodities stored in UAE facilities. The digital certificates that are backed by gold can then be traded on SafeGold’s platform, providing investors with greater levels of transparency and confidence.

Partnerships built on trust and transparency are vital in serving the entire gold industry, and DMCC is perfectly positioned to drive these efforts given our extensive knowledge in gold, world-class infrastructure across the entire gold value chain and ongoing work in blockchain and web3 sectors.”
The UAE is the pre-eminent monetary providers, expertise, and gold hub within the MENA area. Gold is a high-growth business within the UAE; based on the World Gold Council, UAE gold consumption surged by 57 % in 2021.
