Landscaping Priority Areas for Blockchain: Cryptoeconomics, Capacity building, Scalability, Security (24th January 2020)

Ashoka University, in its first of its kind policy initiative, is hosting a high level deliberative workshop on blockchain technology. The overarching theme of the workshop is Landscaping Priority Areas for Blockchain: Cryptoeconomics, Capacity building, Scalability, Security.

 

Over a period of time, blockchain technology has made the transition from the point where it was discussed and debated for its relevance as a useful technology to the point where it is now designed and developed. What has emerged now is a shared recognition that blockchain is for real. There has been a surge of interest among students to advance their understanding of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

 

Keeping in mind the interdisciplinary nature of this field, the university has taken up a policy initiative on blockchain that would attempt to underline key areas within this technology that must be pursued on an immediate basis. In this respect, the forthcoming workshop will focus on ensuring an engaged dialogue and knowledge exchange among distinguished thought leaders and senior experts from academia, government and the industry. 

 

More details on the program will be posted here soon. 

 

Participation in the workshop is by invitation only. For any queries, please reach out anjali.taneja@ashoka.edu.in.
