Bengaluru collaborated with Polygon
Initially, Polygon was hired to introduce Web 3.0 to the aviation industry and months later Meta port is officially ready. In June 2022, Polygon joined the Joint Innovation Centre (JIC), which was established by Amazon Web Service (AWS), Intel India, and Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru. This meta port was created with the help of Polygon and is powered by Intel and Amazon Web Services.
The news was made public through a Twitter post by Polygon's official Twitter handle on 12 November. JIC was established with the intention of empowering startups to quicken aviation innovation and develop smart utilities, infrastructure, and mobility.
It was intended to accomplish these goals by offering extensive program offerings, a technology platform, and the ability for businesses to use AWS to accelerate the innovation process.
By utilizing cutting-edge blockchain technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI and ML), robotics, augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR), cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT), the launch of Metaverse airport (Meta port) will strengthen BIAL's digital roadmap and create tailored solutions for the airport.
Polygon becoming India’s favorite blockchain
Polygon is one of the top 10 biggest cryptocurrencies according to the coinmarketcap and is gaining a lot of attention these days not only in India but worldwide. Polygon is known for its scalability features and its Indian origin tag, that why Indian people are more excited about it.
The Maharashtra government used the polygon chain to issue certificates to citizens residing in Etapalli village, Gadchiroli district, as a part of the Digital India campaign. The Maharashtrian government processed around 65,000 caste certificates.
Over 70% of the 1.1 million economically disadvantaged citizens of the Gadchiroli district are tribal, and this caste certificate issuance through neutral Web3 platforms was intended to reach them.
Earlier Polygon was also used by the Firozabad police to launch a web portal to decrease criminal activities in the city by using blockchain technology in reporting crimes.
According to the official police announcement, this approach will make the complaints immutable and transparent as the complaints that will be registered can’t be removed or deleted by anyone once they are registered.
