While crypto is yet to achieve mass adoption, the shoutout from the National Institute for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has made the Indian crypto community hopeful.
75 Best Practices: Blockchain-Based Caste Certificate
NITI Aayog and UNDP jointly published a “Best Practices in Social Sector: A Compendium 2023 Report.” The report gives a shoutout to 75 best practices and policies that deliver sustainable development goals for people and communities.
