Belgium-based SettleMint has announced the launch of its India operations at a ceremony hosted at the private residence of Ambassador of Belgium. To be headquartered out of New Delhi, SettleMint’s latest footprint in India is the fifth after Belgium, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore.

Matthew Van Niekerk, CEO, SettleMint, said, “We are delighted to begin our journey in India, which is currently a hotbed of blockchain technology activity. Keeping in line with the incredible adoptation pace of blockchain technology world over, India as well stands to benefit from blockchain as a key technology to realise Honourable Prime Minister’s vision of becoming a $5 trillion economy. We have reached delivering a solution rather than hype in the blockchain lifecycle. SettleMint drastically reduces the complexity of blockchain technology, making it easy and fast for organisation to turn a business concept into a working blockchain application from 12-18 months to at most a few weeks.”

According to Blockchain Report 2019 by NASSCOM, the adoption of blockchain technology in India is experiencing rapid growth and investments in blockchain-based projects have touched over $20 billion across various industries. The report further states that many Indian state governments such as those of Telangana, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Maharashtra are supporting blockchain startups and projects and organizing conferences and hackathons on the topic.

Shazad Fatmi, CEO, SettleMint India, said, “We are one of the simplest and fastest blockchain solution provider in the world. Our core technology accelerates the path to leveraging the benefits of blockchain technology: whether those enterprises are looking to improve efficiency, to extend their current products to a new client segment or to completely reinvent an existing business model. SettleMint encapsulates years of R&D on the technical, operational and organisational aspects of Blockchain technology & packages this in fully documented APIs, micro-services, browser components and templates that strips away complexity, providing developers with the building blocks required to build full stack applications.”

SettleMint has undertaken the development of over 35 fully functioning blockchain applications and researched more than 500 known use cases. The patented technology ‘Mint’ covers 85 per cent of the use cases for blockchain technologies and radically reduces the time to market for users. Using Mint, integrating blockchain technologies into an application can take as little as three hours.

“With various industries looking to adopt the technology in India, our focus would initially be on Banking and Finance, followed by industries such as healthcare, retail, logistics, insurance, micro finance institutes (MFIs) and government services,” added Niekerk.

As per data from the World Intellectual Property Organisation, India stands sixth on the list of patents and trends in the blockchain space, with a total of 67 patents approval in 2018. After demonetization there has been a huge shift from transacting in physical currency to digital payments through platforms such as Paytm, GooglePay, PhonePe, etc.

“With the large scale successful adoption of digital payments, India is now keen on moving towards adopting blockchain. Blockchain technology is emerging as one of the key innovations that will define the future of digital transactions in India and transform the FinTech landscape,” stated Niekerk.

“In banking we see blockchain opportunities in remittances, KYC, assets tokenization. In insurance inherent inefficiencies in the claim management system of the Insurance Industry lead to losses of about INR 100 billion per year. Implementing blockchain for claim management is the ultimate solution to mitigate these issues,” elaborated Fatmi.

For government entities, currently, more than 40 blockchain initiatives are being executed by the public sector in India, with 92 per cent in pilot/POC phase and eight per cent projects in the production phase. Most applied use cases are land registry, securing digital certificates on blockchain and governance.
