The sandbox creates a virtual safe space for businesses to “trial and refine innovative products, services, platforms and business models in a live but controlled environment…giving regulators time to adapt legislation as needed,” CPI Financial explained. “Companies will also be able to apply to list their tokens and coins with Palmex and benefit from the compliance of the exchange.” Crypto Exchange Approved for Regulatory Sandbox License in Bahrain According to Arabianchain’s founder and CEO, Mohammed Alsehli, the company “will start with a limited number of select users to test and optimize the process and then expand to the rest.” CPI Financial wrote: The licence goes into effect on 15 July as part of a rigorous application process that verified its security systems, policies, processes and controls to protect customers. Whilst in the regulatory sandbox, companies are required to adhere to CBB regulations. The CEO believes that “a significant rise in awareness and adoption [of cryptocurrency] could be expected, driving a huge spike in the number of trades and token-based fundraising across the region while maintaining the safety of the financial system,” CPI Financial conveyed.
