Incubated at IIT Kanpur, CRUBN was started by the researchers, engineers, and leaders who created, innovated, and adopted cutting-edge blockchain technology under the aegis of the National Blockchain Project, IIT Kanpur. CRUBN provides state-of-the-art tools and technologies exclusively designed and adapted for Indian e-governance scenarios.

About Us

This phase target was to conduct a feasibility study to decide the blockchain technology to use, and to outline the research and validation as well as incubation plan.

Phase I

Feasibility study and report.

Development of blockchain technology, protocols, formal validation of tamper resistance property, and prototype development. An application on top of the prototype at the campus level will be used as a demonstration vehicle.

Phase II

Research and Development Phase.

The project is currently in Phase III. It includes implementation from prototype to production level application development, and working with government entities to demonstrate the use of the developed blockchain.

Phase III

Implementation and Incubation Phase.

This project has been funded by the National Security Council Secretariat to develop e-governance solutions using blockchain technology.
