The KBA, the first of its kind in the country is a joint initiative of the IIITM-K and the global Blockchain Education Network (BEN) and seeks to explore the possibilities of leveraging blockchain technology for public good, capacity building initiatives, promoting disruptive innovations and entrepreneurship.
