Blockchain Foundation of India
BFI is a non-governmental organization — committed to remain a neutral and unbiased platform — uniting all stakeholders of blockchain technology in India towards the common goal of advancing economic growth in the country.
BFI aims to create an open dialogue in India about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. Working towards that mission, BFI organizes conferences, events, meetups, workshops, online courses, and publishes a journal to disseminate accurate information about the technology.
Given the regulatory uncertainty in India, a lot of blockchain startups in India end up without the required resources and support to be able to build their products successfully. BFI is filling this gap through its accelerator program by providing support to promising projects whether in funding through partnership with venture capitals (VCs), compliance with the regulatory framework, or other kinds of technology or business mentorship required by the startups.
The vision of BFI is to oversee comprehensive blockchain implementation in every sector within India, whether governmental, non-governmental, or for-profit businesses. Blockchain Technology will revolutionize the way we transact and store information and bring control back to the people of India over how their personal data and money is kept and shared among different parties.
