Snapper is a leading recognised blockchain technology development and innovation company focussed on building ‘Internet of Value’ since 2016.

Avnish Gupta, MD Enemetch Capital India, said: “Having missed the Internet revolution, we are so glad to have invested into Snapper, and driving early stages of disrupting the blockchain technology.”

Naresh Jain, Co-founder, Snapper Future Tech, said: “From Internet of interaction and information, with blockchain, we are moving towards Internet of Value, where anyone could establish trust, without the need of middleman and one can move and exchange value in real time.”

A press statement issued by Snapper said as per estimates, over 25 per cent of global banking transactions will be on blockchain by 2021.

This will add over $176 billion in business and surge to exceed $3.1 trillion by 2030.

Furthermore, according to an estimate by the World Economic Forum 15 per cent of the global GDP will be stored on blockchain by 2027.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
