Venture capital is flowing in limitlessly.
The euphoria on one of the most sought after technologies in the world (the blockchain) is already at its peak. But many parts of the world still remain unaware of the amazing potential of this exciting technology.
There is a lot of focus now on creating awareness in the Indian market on how embracing this technology can reduce cost and increase transparency for businesses.
Moreover, there is a saying:
- BBB – Build, Back, Better
That’s exactly what the blockchain technology brings to India and the rest of the world. With the blockchain, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to redesign everything in a much better, faster, and smarter way.
For those who’ve come in late, “the blockchain” is the underlying technology behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin that has taken every industry by storm. Now, conferences are being held across the globe to discuss the impact and applications of this disruptive technology.
Where are these conferences happening??? Well, one is happening right here!
INDIA BLOCKCHAIN WEEK 2017
After visiting London, New York, San Francisco, and 7 other cities across the world, Blockchain Week is making its way to India this year.
Somish, a leading blockchain technology firm based in New Delhi, India, has partnered with a London-based company to host the India Blockchain Week of 2017.
The India Blockchain Week, or IBW’17, is a five-day long blockchain festival which will be broadly comprised of two parts; one is the blockchain conference, and the other is the hackathon.
PART I – Blockchain Hackathon
The blockchain week will kick-off with a 3-day long Blockchain Hackathon – “Hack-The-Block”.
The hackathon will revolve around solving real-life problems using blockchain/DLT technology.
Barclay’s global Fintech Accelerator community (i.e. Rise Mumbai) will be hosting this hackathon and playing an important role in setting the problem statements and judging the entries.
PART II – Blockchain Conference
The next part, after the three-day hackathon, is the Blockchain Conference.
The conference calls forth top minds and speakers from over 7 different countries, who are blockchain and cryptocurrency industry leaders, to share their knowledge with the Indian blockchain community.
IBW’17 and CoinSutra invite you to one of the brightest gatherings of the year with the best minds of the world all coming together on a single platform to discuss and learn about the most sought after technology in the world – the blockchain.

Aim of IBW’17 (India Blockchain Week 2017)
IBW’17 aims to bring blockchain industry leaders together to foster the blockchain community and to demystify blockchain technology for India.
It also seeks to discuss, propagate, and accelerate the blockchain’s adoption at all levels across industries by highlighting the real-life pain points which the blockchain solves.
“Blockchain solutions are built on the power of we. This is a cutting edge technology quickly moving beyond its infancy and has the potential to massively reduce costs and induce transparency across industries. Sectors like Banking, Insurance, Manufacturing, Retail, Logistics, Pharma and Agriculture have seen disruption globally, thanks to the advent of this technology.
While we have worked extensively in the European market to build such solutions, Indian businesses have been a tad slow in embracing and experimenting with the technology.”
–Ish Goel , CEO of Somish
