Faculty Development Program (FDP) on Blockchain Technology- Applications, Issues and Challenges

  • February 21, 2022 - 14:00

About the FDP:

Blockchain is an emerging platform for developing decentralized applications and data storage, over and beyond its role as a platform for cryptocurrencies. Blockchain is a growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked using cryptography to keep exchanges secure. Blockchain provides a decentralized database, or “digital ledger”, of transactions that everyone on the network can see. This network is essentially a chain of computers that must approve an exchange before it can be verified and recorded. The use of a Blockchain removes the characteristic of infinite reproducibility from a digital asset. It confirms that each unit of value was transferred only once, solving the long -standing problem of double spending. This technology is implemented in various real – time applications. Crypto currencies, in particular the first and well -known Bitcoin and others such as Ethereum are canonical examples of Blockchain paradigms.

This Faculty Development Programme aims to impart knowledge about blockchain technology. Experts from academia and industry have been invited to deliver lectures about the different aspects of blockchain technology. This FDP will provide a basic understanding of all the above aspects of blockchain technology. It will provide a comprehensive understanding on the contemporary cryptographic approaches and their utilization in blockchain applications that will help faculty to also pursue application development and research in this direction.
