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 project has been funded by the National Security Council Secretariat to develop e-governance solutions using blockchain technology. The project started with feasibility study to decide the blockchain technology to use, and to outline the research and validation as well as incubation plan. This was followed by development of blockchain technology, protocols, formal validation of tamper resistance property, and prototype development. Fast forward to today, it is implementing various e-governance solutions using blockchain technology.
