Fintech Storm Brings Vitalik Buterin, Inventor of Ethereum to Mumbai for Blockchain India Week – May 12th-19th, 2017
London, UK — (SBWIRE) — 03/22/2017 — Fintech Storm and Zero Field Labs hosted the first ever Blockchain India Summit 6 Dec 2016 at Shangri La Hotel, New Delhi with a posse of global Blockchain leaders. Vitalik Buterin, Founder of Ethereum, was Guest of Honour along with pre-eminent leaders in Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) such as Ethereum, Consensys, Microsoft, Wipro, IBM, Synechron, Accenture, TCS etc. Now they are bringing to Mumbai the global Blockchain talent led by Vitalik himself, deemed the foster father of Blockchain, and the whiz kid who invented ethereum at 20, and listed in Fortune 40 under 40 in 2016 – to Blockchain India Week – 12-19 May 2017 – a week full of hackathons, workshops, conferences and CEO-CTO forums aimed at fostering relationships and facilitating enterprise collaborations with the global cryptocurrency ecosystem.
On his first trip to India, gifted polymath Vitalik Buterin enthralled audiences everywhere in New Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad with his thought leadership on DLT, theory of crypto economics, his vision for decentralisation and his role in taking ethereum and distributed computing to masses – his vision is decades ahead of our technology and times. He is extra ordinarily well-rounded in his ability to master and elucidate multiple economic and mathematical concepts to powerful world leaders and young students of DLT alike.
Now driven by the mission of making decentralised world wide web through Ethereum World Computer a possibility even to those who have no knowledge of blockchain or technology. Much like Bill Gates wanted to make pocket-computing ubiquitous and Steve Jobs wanted to amalgamate everything modern and coalesce into a single personalised device called smart phone, Vitalik is working relentlessly to make Ethereum general purpose and something akin to Next Generation Windows ! He is thinking decades and is leading high-powered research to solve problems in the way of DLT becoming truly mainstream – problems such as scalability, privacy, user interface security, latency, and governance. He is taking a whole generation of global technologists along the dizzy ride by educating, guiding, inspiring and leading with his daring vision! The man is something of a magician! A cursory read of the ethereum.blog, his prolific publications addressing doubts of crypto naysayers and answering abstruse mathematical questions leave you in awe of his wondrous genius, indefatigable energy and hypnotic confidence of a 21st century business icon!
Rallying behind ethereum founder’s vision are corporate biggies such as Microsoft, Wipro, Intel, banks such as J.P.Morgan and Credit Suisse – among the 300 odd companies who are joining the latest and most relevant of alliances in blockchain – the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance. Centralised systems may soon be passe, and the whole IT industry is closely tailing Vitalik just to get a glimpse of this bedazzling future of decentralisation, which may be quite unsettling for the incumbents!
Mission of Enterprise Ethereum Alliance – “Learn from and build upon the only smart contract supporting blockchain currently running in real-world production and to define enterprise-grade software capable of handling the most complex, highly demanding applications at the speed of business.”
Marley Grey of Microsoft who sponsored Blockchain India Summit Dec 2016 as Global Blockchain Partner has this to say “Ethereum was the first blockchain supported in Azure and it is evolving to address the needs of enterprises globally. Focusing on requirements like privacy, permissions and a pluggable architecture while retaining its public roots, Ethereum continues to widen the scope of what developers, businesses and consortiums can achieve.”
Zero Field Labs is bringing the ethereum movement to India. Read Vitalik’s interview by Arifa Khan here on Ethereum’s vision. (http://www.dailypioneer.com/business/ethereum-as-a-platform-has-many-things-that-are-unique-about-it–vitalik-buterin.html) Among the delegation are Ethereum core developers from Europe including a team of 20 technical experts from Ukraine – a fast emerging Centre of Excellence in DLT. CEO of Zero Field Labs, Ms Arifa Khan, India Partner and adviser to Vitalik, was in Kiev, Ukraine recently to talk on Current Technological Challenges in Development of Ethereum & other DLT platforms, at the BlockchainUA conference. Her talk captivated many an Ukrainian technologist and persuaded them to visit India.
Blockchain India Week 12-19 May 2017 will present the European blockchain developer talent to India for the first time and a potpourri of blockchain ideas, a suite of Proofs of Concept already developed in Europe, USA at Blockchain India Hackfest and at custom-built ethereum workshops in India. Developers are converging from all over the world in Mumbai for the Hackathon being hosted in collaboration with IIT Mumbai 12-14 May with over 200 signups already. Indian Bitcoin and Blockchain clan is excited about “Vitalik Buterin Prize in Blockchain Excellence” instituted and sponsored by Zero Field Labs, the prize to be handed over by Vitalik, himself on 18 May in Mumbai.
Blockchain India Week is being supported by Vitalik and several members of the Enterprise Enterprise Alliance (EEA) such as Microsoft, Consensys etc. Andrew Keys of Consensys who is leading membership drive of EEA is excited to support India’s strides in decentralisation! Among the invitees are other prominent bit-coiners like Roger Ver and Chandler Guo from China!
