Unblock 4.0:  Telangana to host largest virtual blockchain symposium on Oct 21

Hyderabad: Telangana government has announced to host 'Unblock 4.0', one of the largest virtual blockchain symposiums. on October 21.

The symposium intends to provide participants and delegates broad-spectrum knowledge through presentations and pointed insights about various industries through case studies.

The leaders of this technology will share their vision and insights at the symposium. The discussions that follow will bring new thinking from fresh minds. The symposium would also have rich panel discussions that will allow participants to share their points of view and network with the delegates.

The discussions will fuel thought and spark debate on how blockchain has changed the way we see transactional security and Enterprise-to-Enterprise (E2E), Enterprise-to-Government (E2G), and Department-to-Department (D2D) collaborations. These discussions will also throw light on what the future holds for corporate contracts.

Telangana government said that Emerging Technologies have continued to be their focus as is evident in the 2nd ICT Policy 2021-26. The adoption of blockchain technology has been a business-centric rather than technology-centric decision by various organizations as it yields immutability, decentralization, etc. to the systems.

Within the Telangana government, 10+ blockchain projects have been piloted or scaled with applications in finance, supply chain, and more. The applications of blockchain are truly endless. Therefore, in the last few years, there has been significant growth in its acceptance.

The rapid advent of this novel technology is changing the landscape of all major industries such as Fintech, Healthcare, Supply Chain & Logistics, etc. globally.

It has disrupted the entire landscape of data exchange in most industries and plays a significant role in simplifying data management, streamlining processes, making supply chains more efficient, and improving data security. This technology is reshaping the way the world interacts based on the need for more security, transparency, and trust.

In pursuance of this technology-first attitude, the Telangana government has provided a platform in partnership with DLT Labs, hosting one of the largest virtual blockchain symposiums of its kind: Un-Block 4.0 followed by a two-week extensive Blockchain hackathon named HackDLT.

HackDLT is 14- days of pure adrenaline and problem-solving Blockchain Hackathon from October 21 to Nov 2 on various problem statements in the public sector. It would be conducted by DLT Labs with the support of the Emerging Technologies Wing, ITE&C Department, Telangana government to build a research community of blockchain enthusiasts.

This is a great opportunity for blockchain enthusiasts to showcase their skills in a competitive and challenging atmosphere. Even those with minimum coding knowledge are encouraged to register and build applications on this ready-to-use, tech enabler platform.

" In times when Data Security and Governance are of utmost importance, more Governments and Businesses are set to integrate rapid advancing technologies like blockchain to facilitate safe and secure transactions & operations using the distributed data management. This kind of integration of blockchain technology is something Telangana is looking out for. This hackathon is, therefore, the right platform to accelerate blockchain skills and solve public sector problems," said Telangana Principal Secretary (ITE&C) Jayesh Ranjan.

DLT Labs TM Co-founder and Chief Information Officer Ajay Singh said unblock 4.0 is a perfect platform for unveiling the power of blockchain by presenting various industrial-grade applications that are solution-centric which will prove to be beneficial to both private & public sectors.
