Top blockchain experts and thought leaders from around the world are assembling here for a three-day summit from Thursday (December 6), for sharing ideas and leading discussions on collaborative opportunities in leveraging the technology for public good.
The summit, ‘BlockHash Live 2018’, organized by Kerala Blockchain Academy (KBA) at Hotel Uday Samudra, Kovalam, offers a rare opportunity for the global businesses in blockchain to look into expansion of their operations in Kerala in particular and India in general.
The event will be a unique platform to explore the disruptive potential of the blockchain technology for public good through capacity building to promote research, development and entrepreneurship. The meet will also look into the possibilities for the companies using blockchain to step up their presence in Kerala.
Discussions will be held on how to take local entrepreneurship to global level through blockchain technology, and how foreign institutions, including banks, are effectively making use of this technology.
Most speakers, including Bob Tapscott of Blockchain Research Institute, Canada, are visiting Kerala for the first time. Other lead speakers attending the event are Jennifer Greyson, Founder and CEO, Neureal; Dr. Dilip Krishnaswamy, Vice President, Reliance Jio Infocomm; Sudin Baraokar, Global IT Innovation Advisor; Dr. Sushmita Ruj, Assistant Professor, ISI Kolkata; Mahesh Govind, CEO, DigiLedge; Prasanna Lohar, Head – Innovation, DCB Bank Ltd.; Rajarshi Mitra, blockchain researcher, Blockgeeks; Akarsh Agarwal, Director of Tech, Blockchain Education Network; and Navas Ebin Muhammed, MLG Blockchain, Canada.
