Flashback of India Blockchain Week 2017
Are you still at the crossroads?!
By “crossroads”, I mean the crossroads of whether or not to get involved te the blockchain and cryptocurrency space.
Well, ter my opinion, you should get out of the crossroads and into cryptocurrencies!
I am telling this because the CoinSutra team is back from the IBW’17 conference (i.e. India Blockchain Week) and wij have slew of takeaways spil well spil appealing insights on &ldquo,blockchain tech&rdquo, that should excite you.
Te general, India Blockchain Week 2017 wasgoed one sold out conference that wasgoed amazing to be a part of!
Ter this post-event write-up, I intend to voorkant the significant highlights, takeaways, discoveries, and practices for our readers who couldn’t attend.
INDIA BLOCKCHAIN WEEK 2017
The India Blockchain Week 2017 conference ultimately made its way to Mumbai on 25-26th September. It wasgoed Somish, a leading blockchain technology rock-hard based te Fresh Delhi, India, who partnered with a London-based company to host this event.
The conference wasgoed attended by more than 20 companies with an arousing line of more than Ten sessions on each respective day, with an overall attendance of 1000 delegates!
Blockchain and crypto experts from countries like the UK, the USA, Singapore, India, Ukraine, and Germany were some of the most notable speakers.
The two-day conference wasgoed a flawless blend of cautiously scheduled and smartly-moderated discussion panels on various topics. It had ICOs and blockchain startup showcases spread across the zakagenda for both days.
And of course, the zakagenda allotted each delegate ample amounts of opportunities through coffee cracks, luncheons, and a galabal dinner exclusively for networking. Here are few pictures:
All glad people te one framework ( I’m on the extreme right)
The following panels had leaders and speakers from diverse backgrounds to discuss indeed interesting topics:
Panel 1- Blockchain state of play, most latest developments.
Panel 2- India’s place ter the global blockchain ecosystem.
Panel 3- Initial coin offerings, what are they all about?

Our CEO, Harsh Agarwal, also moderated the last panel (Panel 8) with Sumant Neppalli from Zebpay, Kunal Nandwani, the Consultant Ministry of Finance for GoI, and Aman Kalra from CoinSecure.
Bijzonder from this, some of the other takeaways from thesis panels discussions were:
- One of the discussion panelists, Gary Nutall, collective how the blockchain can be used te various industries chic from banking and remittances. According to him, digital identity, music, and charity are the areas ter which blockchain tech can have a fat influence. He even collective an example how each year almost $50 billion is lost out of the $150 billion of charity raised due to non-transparency.
- Jaspreet Bindra of SVP Digital Transformation Mahindra Group collective that he sees India hiding behind ter the blockchain revolution and believes that thickest blockchain use case is governance on the blockchain.
- Another panelist advised blockchain startups that they should borrow, learn, and see successes spil well spil failures of other similar startups, spil the technology is still te its nascent stage.
- One of the interesting panels wasgoed on ICOs, where Brad Yasar, co-founder of startup accelerator Krowdmentor, told the audience how to analyze ICOs and blockchain startups.
Chic from all this, Ish Goel showcased GovBlocks and said that “India’s Blockchain Ogenblik Is Not Far”. I too found GovBlocks fairly interesting with a valid use case…
A protocol for implementing decentralized governance ter blockchain solutions, GovBlocks is presently compatible with the Ethereum Blockchain and can be integrated on top of Ethereum Wise Contracts spil a layer for decentralized governance.
Governance on the blockchain is possible with thesis features:
And including governance, one can aim to implement the below-shown use cases on GovBlocks:
ICOs and Startup Showcase
There were many ICOs and blockchain startups being showcased, but I will voorkant only those that I found most interesting:
#1 Lisk– Lisk is a blockchain startup that requires no introduction, spil at the uur Lisk is cosily sitting at the 15th position of CoinMarketCap. It wasgoed truly arousing to listen to Max Kordek, Voorzitter of Lisk, when he collective about how Lisk has transformed since their ICO. According to Max, Lisk now has funds worth $100 million designed to help them reach their objective.
Max also boasted that the future of ICOs is going to be even crazier, spil he claimed that “Lisk will host more ICOs than Ethereum is presently having,”
#Two ETHLend- ETHLend wasgoed showcased by Opendier Singh, the head of India Subcontinent. ETHLend aims to democratize lending by using the Ethereum network that will use ERC tokens or ENS domains spil collateral. ETHLend will provide crypto-to-crypto loans to anyone and anywhere te the world with digital collateral and without exposing their identity.
They have an alpha version of their DApp up and running which is already issuing loans. If you are interested ter accessing their DApp, you will require Ethereum’s DApp browser – i.e. Metamask. And if you want to participate ter their ICO, it is still going on overheen here.
#Three RightMesh- RightMesh’s Cheif Product Officer, Saju Abraham, collective a unique use case of the blockchain. RightMesh uses mesh technology to connect users to a wireless network of sharing, and te doing so, they aim to create a fresh connectivity option for the masses.
Chic from this core technology of mesh knots, it leverages Ethereum’s blockchain-based MESH tokens to catalyze the user adoption by incentivizing gegevens sharing knots with MESH tokens and vice-versa.
