Last time when IITM presented a blockchain based app ” BlockTrack”, then many blockchain firms showed their inclination towards IITM to support in their research related to blockchain technology.
In the latest, IITM joined Hedera Hashgraph public blockchain. As we know IITM is a top level University of India and also it comes directly under jurisdiction of the Ministry of education of India. This university right now is doing research on blockchain and advancement of distributed ledger technology.
Under the Hedera Hashgraph, IITM researchers will do research on public blockchains for payments via Hedera Consensus Service and the Hedera Token Service to test the capability and use case in financial infrastructure.

“I am particularly enthused by the opportunity to test and scale our solutions in blockchain-backed information systems in healthcare, industry and digital media.”
