The state hopes to integrate blockchain platforms into official businesses by next year, according to Andhra Pradesh IT Minister Nara Lokesh. Part of the goal is to develop transparent governance through blockchain.
“Our collaboration with Covalent Fund is focused on the creation of a world-class sustainable blockchain ecosystem in the state that will make in ways for innovative startups to work with a start-up state like ours,” said Lokesh.
