India has always been a somewhat controversial region for blockchain and crypto assets. It seems things will improve, as the government will launch several blockchain training courses.
These courses are expected to be organized across various Indian cities in the months to come.
Blockchain Courses in India
Interestingly enough, these courses are organized courtesy of the Ministry of Power.
Among educational topics are blockchain technology, smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, and mining.
Confirmed locations at this time include Nangal, Shivpuri, and New Delhi.
Attending these courses is completely free of charge yet requires registration.
Every course will welcome up to 50 individuals, confirming it is a relatively small-scale effort.
Target audiences include postgrad students, researchers, and faculty members.
It is not open to the general public, which is somewhat disappointing.
All of this news comes at an interesting time.
Earlier this year, it appeared as if the Indian government would try to ban crypto activity altogether.
Those plans were canceled in the end, yet an uneasy situation remains.
This renewed focus on blockchain is perhaps a sign of things to come.
Investigating proper use cases for this innovative technology needs to be a global priority.
How these events will shape the future of blockchain in India remains undetermined.
