International Workshop on

Blockchain for Global Good

Workshop Chair: Dr. Dhiren Patel, Director VJTI Mumbai

Blockchains are tamper evident and tamper resistant digital ledgers implemented in a distributed fashion and usually without a central authority. This technology became widely known in 2009 with the launch of the Bitcoin network. The technology is available beyond crypto-currencies for a broader variety of applications for a variety of sectors. E.g. Smart contracts extend and leverage Blockchain technology and perform calculations, store information, put properties to reflect a publicly exposed state and, if appropriate, automatically send funds to other accounts.

Distributed maintenance of the Blockchain by many (distrusting) parties makes it achieving “distributed consensus” in real time. Blockchain being a disruptive technology provides immense opportunities to the government, industry, and academia to design and implement transparent solutions for many real-life problems.

This international workshop facilitates interactions and presents technology readiness with capacity building in Blockchain in India and abroad. Full day deliberations encompass keynote technical talks, technology showcase demos and panel discussion by eminent speakers and brilliant Blockchain programmers - presenting technology advancements, readiness and promising use cases.

Join us at VJTI Mumbai on March 5, 2019 at the International Workshop on Blockchain for Global Good to explore "How could Blockchain benefit us?" rather than "How we can make our problem fit into Blockchain?"
