Fintech Valley - Vizag Aims To Be Indias Blockchain Hub - Bitcoinist.com

Visakhapatnam, also known as Vizag, may be a picturesque little coastal city but if all goes according to plan, it could become Indias FinTech hub. Chief Minister of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu, is no stranger to transforming cities into veritable tech hubs. First Hyderabad, which houses the countrys Google and Facebook headquarters, and now Vizag. According to Forbes , Naidu, as the chief architect of the FinTech Valley Vizag initiative, hopes to turn the city into a first-rate FinTech ecosystem luring entrepreneurs, businesses, investors, academic organizations and of course, government. It seems as if the countrys Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, agrees. He has previously said: Disruptive technologies such as blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) will have a deep impact in the way we live and work. FinTech Valley Vizag has collaborated with Covalent Fund to develop Velugu Core, an Indian-focused blockchain stack. Thanks to this, government data would be easily accessible through APIs. Interested developers could then create a range of apps based on this information. To increase efficiency even further, KPMG will also be involved in this initiative by developing a repository program to solve common problems in the Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) sector through blockchain- and technology-based solutions. Having gained at least $900 million in investment contributions, Vizag has big plans to lure innovators to the hub. In addition to developing innovation labs and centers for excellence, Vizag will also offer monetary, regulatory and infrastructural support to attract exceptional talent in a bid to grow the city. As the somewhat smaller city of Vizag continues to build itself into a blockchain boss, it shows that tech inno Continue reading >>

Technology That Is Safe. Blockchain Technology Set To Make Vizag Its Hub

Technology That Is Safe. Blockchain Technology Set To Make Vizag Its Hub

In a major turn of events, blockchain technology is set to find its feet in our city. On Thursday, GITAM University organised a conference on Skill India-the way forward: Challenges and imperatives. Addressing here, the IT Adviser to Chief Minister, J.A Chowdary said that the government wanted to develop Vizag into a centre for blockchain technology. He said that this would help in overcoming the challenges of reverse globalisation and disruptive technologies. The blockchain is a way to store and record transactions. Its similar to the database technology but here, the blocks are linked together cryptographically so as to make them fraud-proof. Here, blockchain consists of several blocks. The block, in turn, is a computer code consisting some piece of information. Each block in the chain is connected to the other through a digital signature. If an unauthorised change is made to a code in some block, everyone else connected to the block can see where the change has happened and make sure if the change is authenticated or not. This is a kind of a distributed ledger where the middle men are eliminated. This ledger can be tracked by anyone on the chain and the changes that happen will be seen by all those. While nothing is safe from cyber attacks, hacking the blockchain is extremely difficult. This provides us with a faster and safer means to transmit information. The AP Electronics and IT Agency (APEITA) has tied up with the GITAM University and Broadridge of the US. This will help in introducing courses in blockchain technology. These courses, Mr.Chowdary said will help in creating better job opportunities for the youth. The J.C Bose Institute of Cryptology will be setting up a centre in Visakhapatnam to initiate the courses. Also, the government is planning to organise Continue reading >>
