People that back ZelaaPayAE

ZelaaPayAE is a consumer driven leading fin-tech firm backed and latched on top of the Tron Blockchain to empower decentralized, hassle free and seamless transactions in the Middle East.


Every big move or vision starts with a dream - we can decide either to be wishful for these dreams or to live them. The people that push things for us are the ones who make it real.


Dreams are pointless if they cannot be turned into goals or plans meticulously. Therefore we believe in dreaming big and planning sharp.


Lastly, only with proper skillset to execute these plans can we keep propelling further in the path to success and propserity which we possess.


Core agenda of the firm is to empower advocacy towards mainstream adoption of payments with cryptocurrencies in the Middle East.


The firm is at present established in Dubai and in Sharjah. We are holding an exclusive Distributed Ledger Technologies License granted by the Government of Sharjah and also hold a provisional fin-tech payments entity license from Dubai.

We as a team are widespread and are present around the world with a limited staff that operates out of Dubai physically that includes Alliances mainly. In this modern era of WFH, we are diverse, work in multiple time-zones and are remote.

Key Areas/Departments


A dedicated team of highly professional individuals that were ex-directors at private royal family offices that now focus on establishing and forming strategic alliances/partnerships for the company.


A team focused to identify and build or on-board product offerings that can compliment our vision and ecosystem in the Middle East. This team was reponsible for bringing Pundi Labs to the company.


A forward thinking group of advisors from payments, government and billionaire crypto-entrepreneurs that help us manoeuvre in the right direction as we build in this trillion dollar GDP.
