What is the Future Scope of Blockchain Technology in India? In-Depth Prediction

While Blockchain and Bitcoin have won the world over, India is also taking significant strides to adopt Blockchain technology. With India’s increasing focus towards digitization, the scope of Blockchain in India only seems to be growing. In the wake of demonetization, the Indian economy is already witnessing a paradigm shift – from cash to cashless. Indian citizens have already opened up to efficient and reliable transaction mechanisms such as UPI, Paytm, and Google Pay.

According to Indeed’s data, there’s a considerable demand for Blockchain and Blockchain-related jobs in India, particularly in the southern cities. As usual, Bengaluru, the tech hub of India, leads in the job opportunities in the Blockchain domain – it accounts for around 36% of all job postings in Blockchain tech in India. It is closely followed by Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, and Chennai. Although the top five job destinations for Blockchain in India lie in the south, the NCR of the country including New Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, and Mohali are also witnessing an increase in demand for Blockchain jobs.

SAAS Business – What is So Different?

 

 The Indian government’s proactive encouragement towards disruptive digital technologies is offering a massive boost to the growing scope of Blockchain in India. For instance, post-demonetization, the RBI issued a statement focusing on Blockchain’s potential to combat financial scams and frauds and to transform financial markets and the payment infrastructure altogether. 

Ever since the demonetization, the overall focus of the Indian government has been to promote digitization for a cashless economy. To further this goal, IndiaChain – NITI Aayog’s pilot project in Blockchain tech – was developed to help create job opportunities in this domain. At the state level, Andhra Pradesh became a pioneer of sorts by becoming the first Indian state to leverage Blockchain tech for maintaining land records. 

Although India is still at the nascent stage in exploring Blockchain technology, it holds is immense potential for Blockchain applications. Blockchain integration in financial transactions will not only save time and money, but it will also make the transaction processing and authentication process much more seamless. Furthermore, Blockchain can be an excellent tool to monitor money laundering and black money accumulation – since all transactions are permanently stored on the Blockchain network, every transaction is accountable. Blockchain is also capable of dealing with issues like double spending and unauthorized spending.

The best feature of Blockchain is that it operates on a decentralized database, thereby making all transactions transparent, seamless, and highly secure. Apart from financial transactions, Blockchain tech can be leveraged in other areas as well.

  • To protect intellectual property rights – With Blockchain, content creators and publishers can track and protect their ownership and intellectual property rights by making the origin data transparent on the Blockchain network. This will also help prevent piracy or misuse of intellectual property. 
  • To store files securely – Since files or data is not stored on a single, centralized ledger, but is distributed on multiple networks and systems, it becomes impossible to hack or violate the stored data. In Blockchain each block contains an encrypted hash code without which the data cannot be accessed. 
  • To impart transparency in Administration – Blockchain technology can be used to make elections or other polls transparent. By automating the process with smart contracts and making the results publicly accessible and transparent, the poll process can be devoid of corruption.
  • To crowdsource VC funds – Blockchain frameworks (like Ethereum) can allow individuals to purchase tokens and choose capital investments, thereby encouraging direct cooperation and collaboration between the public and enterprises.
