There is always a question in everyone’s mind about the adoption of Blockchain Technology, which is just a new form of decentralized database and is changing the foundation of our economic and social systems.

Microsoft has recognized him as a .NET community Star.

The whole interactive session revolved around the basics of Blockchain, how a trustless trust algorithm can change the world, the evolution of Blockchain, myths, and facts related to Blockchain, and Specific Use Cases and Projects with the start-ups to add value to their respective products.

In the end of the session, a case study profile for one of our incubated start-up, Jan Elaaj was built and the same would be discussed in the upcoming series of sessions in collaboration with student groups of IIM Lucknow.
