Canada’s BRI (Blockchain Research Institute) has signed an agreement with India’s NASSCOM (National Association of Software and Services Companies) in an effort to fuel the future of Blockchain adoption through collaboration and innovation.

The agreement promises to provide India’s leading technology experts with cutting-edge education through webinars, training and knowledge sharing between the two parties. BRI is a Canadian government backed institution, with an ambitious ethos of dedication to  “exploring, understanding, documenting and informing leaders about Blockchain strategies, market opportunities and implementation challenges.”

Don Tapscott, BRI’s Executive Chairman, has expressed praise for India’s booming tech sector, stating, “We strongly believe that India has the potential to lead the Blockchain revolution.” By teaming up with NASSCOM, Tapscott hopes to catalyze the new “Operating System of the economy” through the advancement of Blockchain technology.

Commenting on the potential of the agreement, Raman Roy, Chairman of NASSCOM, stated, “Our collaboration with BRI will foster greater collaboration between the two countries, focused on the creation of a world-class sustainable Blockchain ecosystem in India that will help enhance our vision for a digital economy.”

The agreement comes on the heels of a recent tweet from India’s Prime Minister’s Office, commenting on the profound impact Blockchain technology will have on the way humans work and live in the future. These new revelations from within India’s most influential institutions reflect a strong momentum towards the adoption of Blockchain technology, and poise the nation to stand on the front line of the Blockchain revolution.
