NEAR – Building the Future of Decentralized Applications
NEAR is a blockchain platform that is designed to enable the creation of decentralized applications and smart contracts in a more user-friendly and scalable way. The NEAR Foundation is making significant strides towards its vision of onboarding 1 billion users to Web3 with the introduction of the Blockchain Operating System (BOS), an interoperable layer for all blockchain networks.
To tap into India’s immense blockchain potential, NEAR Foundation partnered with Shemaroo, a major Indian media giant, providing them with advanced blockchain infrastructure. NEAR also appointed Arpit Sharma as the new Managing Director to lead expansion in India, South East Asia, and the Middle East, overseeing operations and growth efforts in these regions.
What to Expect from the India Blockchain Tour 2023?
The India Blockchain Tour is more than just a few events – it’s a whole movement. India’s blockchain industry has massive potential, but it’s being hindered by regulatory uncertainty and community fragmentation. The goal of IBT is to address all the Web3 communities scattered across the nation, bridging the gap between projects and the people they cater to.
Besides connecting with industry leaders and networking with enthusiasts and professionals, attendees will also have access to hands-on workshops and other fun activities to get your crypto gears grinding, covering a wide range of topics from decentralized finance (DeFi) and DAOs to Play-to-Earn Games and NFTs.
In a nutshell, you can expect to:
- Learn about the latest trends, innovations, and opportunities in the blockchain space.
- Meet and network with industry leaders, developers, investors, and other stakeholders.
- Participate in hackathons and workshops to gain hands-on experience with blockchain technology.
- Explore potential partnerships and investment opportunities in the Indian blockchain industry.
“India doesn’t have one big blockchain community. It’s hundreds, if not thousands of smaller communities scattered across the country,” said Anupam Varshney, CEO of Octaloop. “The Indian market is extremely lucrative for blockchain projects, but community fragmentation is a problem, and that’s what we want to fix.”
