Founder and Managing Director
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 a market demand for a fully regulated and well-governed exchange with stable banking relationships. Under Dina’s leadership as 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 addresses 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, and Egypt, and has plans to expand globally to service markets outside the MENA region as well.
Over the years, Dina has immersed herself in the crypto and blockchain industry and is at the forefront of all the latest developments. She was one of the first people to provide access to digital assets in the MENA region and has personally onboarded many individuals to crypto and provided them exposure to the emerging digital asset class.
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.
