Blockchain in India to boom in 2020 despite hard ban on crypto

Despite the ban on cryptocurrency and a court case to fight, the blanket ban blockchain in India is booming rapidly.

The blockchain addiction is something that has always divided people, either people are all for it or against it. When the Bitcoin skyrocketed to an unprecedented level in 2017, everyone wanted a part of this technology.

Even though it sunk to its lowest seeing a decline of 80 percent, it was evident that the currency had left an impression on start-ups and companies, and it wasn’t about to leave anytime soon.

Disregarding cryptocurrency but not blockchain in India

It is without a doubt that Indian regulatory bodies hold a stern stance on Bitcoin to date and other virtual currencies alike. But the same is not the case for blockchain in India as the authorities are striving to make full use of this, from providing attractive deals to companies to making training facilities.

As blockchain has already set a mark in India, here are some of the areas where the technology is used in the public sector:

  • Distributions of benefits.
  • Insurance of farms
  • Power issuance
  • Cybersecurity
  • Medical health document management
