Blockchain Incubation Center/Lab


Blockchain Lab is an initiative under the Telos India Blockchain Hub, supported by the Community Relations Team — Telos Foundation.

Concept:
In view of the rising blockchain adoption in India and overseas, there is little knowledge readily available about how blockchain works and how it will be a major driving force in our future.

Why?
Most available blockchain resources online are focused on the money-making aspect of the crypto industry and bring in inherent risks to the users. Scams and frauds are rampant and can easily deceive even veterans in the space. These can be avoided by sharing knowledge through trusted sources, letting students know about the real-life use cases and adoption.

How?
The blockchain education sessions will focus on explaining the basics of how blockchain works, what are the different consensus mechanisms and how smart contracts can reduce third party dependance.
Then, we will focus on the various components of different blockchains, how they work and how they are different from each other, an introduction to Telos and emphasizing benefits of building on Telos.
Lastly, we will guide interested students to specific tools and resources, where they can learn more about developing on Telos and arrange for a recorded message from the Telos Core Devs (if students have specific doubts).
Various career options in the blockchain ecosystem will be shared — for technical and non technical students.
Non technical students will be introduced to dApps that will be gaming, social media, blogging and NFT’s.

Each participant will receive a proof of attendance NFT, in collaboration with the AreaX team, that will have future utilities like attending special meet ups and events.

Later on, interested students can do a formal ‘Blockchain Certification’ through the Telos Academy, with basic, intermediate and advanced levels.


In March 2022, a 5 year contract was signed between CreativBlock (registered as BlockTech Services LLP) and Sinhgad College of Science, Pune to setup the Blockchain Lab in the premises of the Institute.

Initially, we will be reaching out to 2300+ students and 100+ faculty members in the inaugural year, that will focus on blockchain education and awareness, providing interested students access to the right tools to build on Telos or use the growing ecosystem of dApps!
