DUBAI — Middle East cryptocurrency platform BitOasis announced Tuesday in an online press statement that it will work with Dubai’s regulatory agency to meet unfulfilled licensing requirements, after its license was suspended the day before by the crypto authority.
Dubai’s Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) issued its suspension via a market alert on its website for BitOasis not meeting requirements needed for its Operational Minimum Viable Product (MVP) License obtained in April. This license allows the cryptoplatform to work with institutional and qualified investors.
“VARA is exercising its authority to supervise and monitor compliance, assure fulfillment of prescribed conditions, impose remedial measures and take necessary enforcement actions, including but not limited to holding BitOasis’ License status as nonoperational,” stated the warning by the virtual assets authority founded in May 2022.
VARA said BitOasis will need to meet the mandated conditions for the license within 30 to 60 days or likely face permanent suspension.
