posted 10 months ago
State government in India is working with a multinational IT services giant to build a district within the state capital dedicated to blockchain startups. The IT department of the Telangana state government is working with Tech Mahindra, a publicly listed firm with headquarters in India, that will see the two teaming up to build what they claim will be the country's first "blockchain district."

The blockchain district will occupy an area inside Hyderabad – the state's capital city – with physical buildings to house and incubate blockchain startups from India as part of the government's push to advance the tech's development. Both Telangana & the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh are exploring blockchain technology to digitally rework their land registries & have both recently started to develop a blockchain ecosystem.
