Tokenization in the UAE And Why Digital Securities Are the Future of Investment

Welcome to the 6th episode of SolidBlock’s podcast channel, “BlockSolid”, where Yael Tamar, SolidBlock’s Co-CEO & CMO, interviews different guests about an array of topics from the FinTech and PropTech worlds. Yael, with her upbeat personality and current questions, can make any subject an interesting listen, even to people new to the fields.

In today’s episode, Yael speaks with Mohammed Mahfoudh about a variety of topics, including the technological revolution involving digitizing new industries and the early stages of real estate technology as well as his work with governments in terms of paving the way for investment in digital assets.  

Mohammed has been working throughout his career with startups, either establishing or advising them. For an extended period, he was an angel investor, advisor, and mentor to over 100 European startups, and was involved with over 35 exits, mostly in the US. Mohammed had also taken few positions with the government and corporate sector in companies such as SAP and PWC, and a range of local and international companies in UAE and Europe. He has been involved in different industries, from a management and investment perspective, such as Legal, Real Estate, Healthcare, and Aviation.

Mohammed has been involved in the blockchain/crypto domain since 2014, initially with mining and investment, and eventually as an advisor to various ICOs. During 2018 and the ICO decline, he identified the growth opportunity in the asset-backed tokens and the emergence of Security Tokens, which lead him to establish Deca4 — a company that quickly became a global player — providing consultancy, advisory, project management, and research to the industry, helping navigate the complexity of the tokenization ecosystem.
