Faisal, finally back on the show, joins Ahmed to welcome a new guest, Fatma Elsafty, who is the Blockchain Technology Manager at Du, which is one of the leading telecom operators in the UAE.

Fatma, in charge of driving Du’s blockchain programs, walks us through why Du are focusing their time and efforts on using blockchain technology and what they are actually building for their diverse customer base.

One of their main products is the Blockchain Platform as a Service (BPaas) which helps enterprises and SME’s alike easily deploy blockchain network and applications in a simple and secure environment. Fatma shares why the BPaaS is a game changer for the region and how they are aiming to lead the enterprise space for blockchain adoption.

With all the focus on their end customer, we also learn about Du’s other ventures in this nascent space such as the Smart Contract Repository and the Dapp marketplace they are building.

All of the above and more will be on this week’s episode of Encrypted!
