Entrepreneurial at heart and passionate about crypto assets and digital financial markets, Dina Sam’an strongly believes in the potential of cryptocurrencies to reshape the future of finance. CoinMENA was launched in 2021 to fulfill market demand for a fully regulated and well-governed exchange with stable banking relationships. Under Dina’s leadership as Co-Founder and Managing Director, CoinMENA has become the fastest-growing cryptocurrency exchange in the MENA region. From the beginning, Dina’s goal was to ensure CoinMENA addressed a gap in the regional market by allowing users to deposit, trade, and withdraw digital assets simply and safely. Catering to both beginners and experienced investors, CoinMENA is currently available in Bahrain, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Egypt, and Iraq and has plans to expand globally to serve markets outside the MENA region as well.

Dina has been deeply involved in the cryptocurrency industry for years, staying up-to-date on all the latest developments. She frequently shares her insights and expertise through thought leadership pieces on LinkedIn and the CoinMENA Blog. With her extensive knowledge and contributions to the industry, Dina has earned a reputation as a pioneer in the MENA region. This recognition was highlighted when she was selected among the prestigious Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2021. Always an entrepreneur, Dina started her career building and growing her family’s real estate business, where she gained firsthand experience in scaling a venture. In 2015, she was part of the founding team at the region’s first cryptocurrency exchange.
