Decentralized Lab

Kerala Blockchain Academy established the Decentralized Lab to experiment with the Public Blockchain Systems. This research lab focuses on setting up multi-node Blockchain noeds to simulate the actual working of Blockchain networks. Some of the capabilities of the Lab are on creating Local Test Faucents, Multi-node set up for Ethereum Client (Geth), development of advanced Blockchain simulators and Ethstats – A dashboard for monitoring networks, etc.

Decentralized Lab actively engages in research related to the underpinnings of Blockchain and collabroates with Industry to undertake consultancy activities on the core areas of research.

Decentralized Lab

KBARG actively researches on leveraging Blockchain Technology for meeting Sustainable Development Goals by the United Nations. We specifically focus on Goal 1, 3, 4 and 13 and our research is aligned with “No Poverty”, “Good Health and Well-being”, “Quality Education” and “Climate Action”. KBARG collaborates with Academia, Industries and other NGO and Non-profit Organizations to harness the power of Blockchain for meeting these Goals by 2030.
