EMURGO, the official commercial and venture arm of Cardano, a third generation blockchain, has formally announced its entry into the Indian market with the establishment of EMURGO Academy (EMURGO Learning Solutions Private Limited). Along with local support from Indian government officials and enterprises, EMURGO Academy will train developers and create blockchain experts to expand the usage of blockchain technology.

Blockchain technology along with big data, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to play central roles in the upcoming years across vast industries. The Indian government has spotlighted the potential applicability of blockchain technology to several use cases such as land registry, education and health records, and supply chain management.

However, the limited supply of qualified blockchain developers worldwide has been unable to keep up with increasing demand by big and small enterprises for blockchain development due to a lack of proper educational courses.
