Binance, the blockchain and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider on Thursday announced the digitisation of attendee experience with the help of blockchain technology at IIT Delhi’s annual college fest, Rendezvous, scheduled from April 24 to 26, 2022.

Through this association, Binance aims to educate and spread awareness about the various use cases of blockchain, such as those being showcased during the fest ranging from NFT tickets, NFT certificates, fan tokens, and POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol), among others.

Leon Foong, Head of APAC at Binance said, “We are excited to partner with IIT Delhi for Rendezvous, where the most talented tech students from all over the country are brought together. We are happy to leverage Binance’s infrastructure and platform to inspire and educate the attendees of Rendezvous in web3, blockchain and crypto."

He said that Binance has always been dedicated to educating and empowering the student community and aims to prepare the students of IIT Delhi, the event participants and the rest of the country to be ready for a future of financial freedom that is powered by blockchain technology.

"In line with the crypto for all theme, we strive to make the blockchain space more inclusive and accessible to all and give back to the communities that help create events like Rendezvous. We are looking forward to the innovative ideas that will emerge during the festival and the new economic opportunities that will arise from events like this," he added

Khushpreet Singh, BRCA IIT Delhi overall Coordinator said, “Blockchain is an emerging technology with a large scope for innovation in India. We are delighted about the partnership with a global leader like Binance as this will allow our students to not only learn about the new revolutionary technology but also see some of its applications in action."

Singh added that the digitisation of the event will definitely infuse a new level of excitement to the attendee experience, while also imparting knowledge about this most interesting technology that enables us to be future-ready. The Rendezvous organising team is moving forward with a strong conviction and is determined to give every stakeholder a great experience.

"The entire campus is really excited with the concept of NFT tickets for the Pronites, which is the main attraction during the 3-day cultural fest. It is amazing how Binance is helping the long-standing issue of registration using blockchain and NFTs, especially at this scale", said Aman Lohia, Rendezvous Overall Coordinator.
