In addition to developing tools for decentralized finance, gaming nonfungible token markets, metaverses, decentralized communities, on-chain coordination methods, and other fields, most of the companies featured in the report are developing tools for the development of on-chain modes of coordination.

The NASSCOM is still optimistic about the prospects for Web3’s rapid development in the nation over the next few years, predicting that there will be an increase of 150 million internet users in India and 500 million users of 5G over the next few years. 

According to Debjani Ghosh, CEO of NASSCOM, “India’s place in the global Web3 scene has been cemented by its rapid adoption of new technologies, its expanding startup environment, and its vast pool of digital talent.”.

Despite the skepticism about blockchain technology, Indian businesses and governments are embracing it pragmatically, with applications ranging from land registration to education, health and safety, financial services, and enterprise information technology.
