After Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, now Karnataka has its eyes on blockchain technology.
The Govt. of Karnataka was always a front-runner in e-governance and this time also its not lagging behind and is planning to bring out a White Paper on ‘Blockchain Use in Governance’ as a prelude to a separate policy.
Apart from this White Paper on ‘Blockchain Use in Governance’ the government is conducting a Blockchain Hackathon, an initiative of the Bengaluru Tech Summit from Jan 19-21 at Koramangala Indoor Stadium as the first level towards the adoption of the technology.

The hackathon will be open to students, start-ups, and other IT professionals, while cloud-based blockchain technology providers will be invited to provide platforms for use in the hackathon. The State government has already taken the lead in the last few years to create and sustain relationships with cloud-technology providers. These providers will be present at the hackathon to provide participants with access to these platforms during the event, free of cost.
Experts from departments of home, transportation, tourism, forests, agriculture, and finance were consulted to develop use case studies for each sector. These will address a variety of issues across domains, and will involve multi stakeholder decision-making, such as in the case of beneficiary management of welfare schemes, tracing the chain of custody of agricultural/ horticultural/forest for better quality and price for farmers, Identity Ownership Management for data privacy and real-time record maintenance for land records management and taxation.
