What Will Blockchain Bring To India?

What Will Blockchain Bring To India?

It was clear that India was onto something big when it hosted events like India Blockchain Week 2017 in August and Blockchain Business Conference on October 17 conducted by Fintech Valley Vizag, or when the leading public and private sector banks, SBI and ICICI, shook hands with the Blockchain technology . The technology that offers trust and integrity, solutions to many problems, work across domains, decentralisation and makes intermediators redundant. The technology that is vouched for by Gartner and PwC as the disruptive technology of the year 2017, and by Forbes for the year 2018. How can it help a country like India, whose population is exploding and yet is the fastest growing economy in the world? The Current State of Blockchain Disruption in India As per stats from PwC in the year 2016, some thirty-two blockchain firms were founded in India, and in the years before 2016, just twenty-three were established. Another fact from Cointelegraph says that only 0.5% of people are into Bitcoin in India , a cryptocurrency based on Blockchain technology. The Reserve Bank of India [RBI] also favour blockchain technology and are experimenting with how it could help core banking. However, they are in no mood to authorize Bitcoin trading and acceptance in India. But that doesnt mean they are against cryptocurrency, and they are in fact keen on giving India their own virtual currency named Lakshmi . Overall, one could say that Blockchain is a trending keyword, known in-depth by a few, with its execution and implementation restricted to limited geography in India. While #UnionBudget2018 made it clear that cryptocurrency regulation is underway, blockchain technology is welcomed with open arms. With a positive market sentiment and a startup community geared to showcasing their inno Continue reading >>

The Five Most Significant Trends In Blockchain Right Now | Blockchain Week 2018 Takeaways

The Five Most Significant Trends In Blockchain Right Now | Blockchain Week 2018 Takeaways

The five most significant trends in blockchain right now | Blockchain Week 2018 takeaways Last week many of the brightest minds in the blockchain development community gathered to share ideas on the technologys future across a broad range of industries. As was the case in 2017, the widespread opinion continued to be that financial services is a key target industry for blockchain to disrupt, much of the conversation focused around how and when this would happen. Here are our key takeaways from the show. The number of ICOs being launched skyrocketed in the second half of 2017, partly due to greater public awareness of the purported benefits of blockchain, and in part due to the fact that cryptocurrency (Bitcoin) investors suddenly found themselves cash rich and ready to jump on the next investment opportunity. However, there is certainly no consensus as to whether the quality of investment opportunities matches the quantity currently available. The most heated conversations in the room all occurred around the legitimacy and morality of ICOs. Despite being ostensibly an event for forward thinkers in the blockchain space to share ideas, there was clearly a percentage of the audience that felt uncomfortable with the sums of money currently being invested into companies with no proven history of financial success, and little more than an idea and some blockchain theory to their names. Inevitable comparisons continue to be redrawn between the current crypto investment surge and the dotcom bubble of the early 2000s, whether those accusations are lazy or have validity is not clear. What is clear is that a very high percentage of ICOs will not be successful (a fact that almost every blockchain proponent will attest to); the argument revolves around whether ICOs offer an adequate Continue reading >>

Rightmesh At The India Blockchain Week

Rightmesh At The India Blockchain Week

CPO @ RightMesh | advocating positive and impactful change through tech | decentralization | blockchain | sharing economy | inspiring kids to code | live fully Authors note: This is my account of an event that happened several months ago, and because of other priorities, this half-written post never got around to be being completed, until now. That week was so good, though, that it really needs to be recounted. In late-September of 2017, I was fortunate to travel to Mumbai, India to attend the India Blockchain Week organized by Somish and Fintech Worldwide Ltd. While RightMesh team members attended, and presented at, numerous blockchain events around the world during that time (in fact, there were 2 other concurrent events in Dubai and London attended by our team at that exact same time), I personally was really excited to attend this event to explore the state of blockchain technology in an emerging market such as India, while spreading awareness about RightMesh and gathering community feedback about our platform. Undoubtedly, India is an important key market for RightMesh. The event itself did not disappoint it was a well coordinated five day program that started with a blockchain hackathon on Friday evening until Sunday, followed by a full two day conference on Monday and Tuesday. Because were are a team of people that thrives on challenges, we of course had to participate in the blockchain hackathon (challenge accepted!). I was joined by my talented colleagues from Khulna, Bangladesh to be a part of the Hack The Block hackathon, and it was hosted at a great venue Rise Mumbai . The hackathon problem statement: to design a blockchain-based ID system that would transform the way organizations interact with consumers. While we thought the statement was a bit abstract, Continue reading >>
