Telenor Pakistan is pleased to have hosted a delegation of Blockchain experts from the BSV Blockchain Association at its 345 campuses, taking its mission of empowering societies one step further into the future.
The purpose of the visit was to discuss the prospects for future collaboration in technologies that, through the potential of Blockchain, can empower every segment of society.
The BSV Blockchain Association is a non-profit organization based in Switzerland that promotes Blockchain education and adoption in the public and private sectors. The delegation was led by Mr. James Nguyen, Founding President of the BSV Association, who expressed the organization’s interest in funding several Blockchain initiatives in Pakistan, including creating awareness and training programs for government decision-makers and advising on the nation’s Blockchain strategy.
Irfan Wahab Khan, CEO of Telenor Pakistan, stated on the occasion of the delegation’s visit, “In our position as an innovative and technologically driven global entity, we are pleased to have hosted the esteemed delegation of Blockchain experts at Telenor 345 campus.” We grow by learning, and it is always promising to collaborate with experts in innovative fields, while also constructing bridges to enable collaboration and strengthen the economy. This opportunity and potential of Blockchain will undoubtedly have a socio-economic impact in the coming years, and we look forward to entering Digital Pakistan with high hopes and a positive impact.”
While it is still in its early stages, Blockchain technology has the potential to enable decentralized and secure information storage and transfer. Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) are increasingly replacing traditional business models in almost every industry, from energy to shipping to media. Making micropayments to consume entertainment is an example of Blockchain in everyday use.
Large-scale Blockchain implementation in Pakistan would result in minimal friction, a significant increase in consumer trust, and, most importantly, empowered, connected people who share a common vision of a prosperous, Digital Pakistan.
