The cryptocurrency market had remarkably developed in the Arab world over the past years in conjunction with the world’s realization of the importance of such currencies. 

In this regard, several Arab figures joined the cryptocurrency world and achieved great success in it. One of these figures who entered this world very early is the Jordanian entrepreneur Talal Tabbaa. We will showcase his crypto career in this article. 

Who Is Talal Tabbaa? 

Tabbaa is a Jordanian entrepreneur, who graduated from Purdue University, the US, after receiving a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering. He also received an International Baccalaureate Diploma from Amman Baccalaureate School. 

Despite being young, Tabbaa assumed several posts at many global institutions and companies. He is now the co-founder and executive director of operations at the Swiss-based Jibrel Network, which aims to bridge the gap between traditional and crypto economies. 

He is also the cofounder and CEO of CoinMENA, a crypto exchange, which is headquartered in Bahrain, in addition to being a board member at the Middle East Payment Services (MEPS) in Jordan. 

How Did Tabbaa Join The Crypto World? 

At the beginning of his career, Tabbaa worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, so he had to communicate with several banks and companies, working in the financial sector. At that time, he faced a major problem, which is that most companies and banks did not use technology. 

Hence, he began to search for a way through which technology could be linked to the financial sector, and he did not find a better way than cryptocurrency to play this role.

As we mentioned, Tabbaa took part in establishing Jibrel Network in Zug town in Switzerland, which is known for its clear and explicit laws regulating digital transactions. The main goal for this company was to integrate the traditional economy with the crypto one. 

CoinMENA Establishment 

The establishment of CoinMENA is considered one of the most significant stations in Tabbaa’s crypto career. Headquartered in Bahrain, CoinMENA is a Sharia-compliant crypto-assets trading platform that is licensed and regulated by the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB).

Through CoinMENA, users can buy, sell, store, and receive digital assets safely and securely, as well as deposit and withdraw in their local currency.

Tabbaa aimed to enable new investors in the Middle East and North Africa to take part in the new digital world. 

CoinMENA offers its services in seven Arab countries, which are Bahrain, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman, and Qatar.

Ambitious Vision 

Regarding his plans, Tabbaa targets to expand digital financial services to cover more clients and countries. He seeks to make CoinMENA the easiest and safest platform for trading digital currencies in the entire Arab world.
