“Blockchain solutions are built on the ‘power of we. This is a cutting edge technology quickly moving beyond its infancy and has the potential to massively reduce costs and induce transparency across industries. Sectors like Banking, Insurance, Manufacturing, Retail, Logistics, Pharma and Agriculture have seen disruption globally, thanks to the advent of this technology. While we have worked extensively in the European market to build such solutions, Indian businesses have been a tad slow in embracing and experimenting with the technology.” – says Ish Goel, CEO, Somish the organizing company.
