For those who are naive to this change in student polls, explains that the blockchain is an immutable distributed digital ledger.

The main benefits of using blockchain technology for elections include dramatically reducing costs, providing a tamper-proof process that is verifiable, and bringing innate trust in the electoral process.

Student body election.’

application called BlockTrack, which is currently being field tested at IIT

Madras Institute. This ensures a positive hatch on two important goals.

Individual and Health Service Provider Records To effectively implement these goals, new technologies must be leveraged. BlockTrack is a
step in the right direction and innovative for complex health information


Mr. Dwivedi commends the team at IIT Madras for developing the

solution, which reinforces the healthcare system’s commitment to effectively track the spread of disease and maintain privacy while storing personal data on the network.
