According to Yahoo Finance, the blockchain network will focus on content distribution in India and will power the industry by providing users with data privacy. He also said that by the first day of the official open operation of the blockchain network, there will be thousands of nodes running on it.
Ambani said in his speech:
By using blockchains, we can make almost all types of transactions more secure, trustworthy, highly automated and efficient than ever before. This is a vital capability for India, especially considering the modernization of our agricultural and other commodity supply chains, which constitute the lifeblood of our economy. Moreover, with the blockchain, we also have the opportunity to invent a new data privacy model. Indian data – especially customer data – should be owned and controlled by the Indian people, not the company – especially global companies.
Reliance Jio, known as Reliance JIO Information Communications Co., Ltd., is headquartered in Mumbai, India and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reliance Industries. Instead of providing 2G or 3G services in India, the company uses LTE voice to provide voice services over its network.
