New blockchain technology is finally picking up in the Indian market and within general awareness among citizens. The maiden encounter of blockchain happened recently in Hyderabad at the huge event dubbed as International Blockchain Congress which was attended by crypto enthusiasts across the country and event world. The latest initiative is now being taken by New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) which began a plantation campaign and will monitor the maintenance through blockchain.
According to Dev Discourse, it is stated that in a mass plantation drive undertaken recently by NDMC about 10,000 saplings, 33,895 shrubs, 3,77,650 ground cover plants, and 23 palm trees were planted in 14 circles of the civic body. The plants are said to be monitored with the help of new blockchain technology and geo-tagging to ensure their proper maintenance. The entire plantation was done in at various roads and Central Park in Connaught Place which includes several tree species.
NDMC chairman Naresh Kumar mentioned that this is an innovative idea initiated by the government to explore the potential of the encryption based technique. In addition to this, he informed that the geo-tagging of the saplings will be completed by the end of September. In his words, this isn’t a onetime activity and has to be checked at regular intervals for their progress. Those who want to get into the network will have to authenticate their credentials and they can adopt or take over the responsibility of the plant. (Via Crypto News)
