Indian police is trying to combat police corruption and ensure transparency through Blockchain

A Layer 2 blockchain called Polygon seeks to aid Ethereum’s scalability. Polygon serves as a Layer 2 protocol rather than trying to mimic Ethereum’s features. Instead, it aids in accelerating transaction times and bringing down costs for developers. Imagine it as a quicker, less-stoppered express train that travels side by side with a local train. Currently, Polygon can handle transactions at speeds up to 7,000 TPS while Ethereum can only process 14 TPS. Everything created on the blockchain is now significantly quicker and cheaper as a result. Experts predict that Ethereum will soon increase its TPS following its eagerly awaited network update in September 2022. However, Polygon’s cheaper fees should continue to draw developers and support the cryptocurrency’s narrative even after the Merge.

After the debut of a new police complaint system that leverages blockchain technology to avoid manipulation, the 2.8 million residents of India’s Firozabad district may finally be able to sleep a bit more soundly. On October 12, co-founder of Polygon Sandeep Nailwal tweeted that the Firozabad police in Uttar Pradesh has begun using the Polygon blockchain protocol to combat local police corruption and criminality.

The portal, known as the First Information Report (FIR), enables victims of crimes to file complaints against neighborhood police officers without fear of their claims being disregarded or mishandled by potentially dishonest officers. Because he grew up hearing accounts of victims—many of them were rape victims—not receiving justice owing to local police corruption, Nailwal said the project was very dear to his heart.

The Firozabad police posted the video that Nailwal provided, and it included a brief interview with Ashish Tiwari, the senior superintendent of the Firozabad police. The FIR being placed on the blockchain, according to Nailwal, means that reports cannot be falsified or rejected by lower-level police and “may be a game-changer in securing the right to justice.” Others in the cryptocurrency community have also taken note of the Firozabad police declaration, with many viewing it as excellent news for Polygon, blockchain technology, and the locals of Firozabad. In the announcement, Nailwal also expressed her gratitude to the police commissioner for going above and beyond his or her call of duty to use technology to implement and innovate for fair justice.

The Indian navy veteran and Twitter user srinigoes called it “an outstanding concept” to record grievances on the blockchain, which would guarantee transparency, to their 15,200 followers. Whoever filed the FIR (First Information Report) first had an advantage over others in the interior parts of India, he claimed. The first complaint site on Polygon has now been established, which means that complaints are now irrevocable, as highlighted on Twitter by Kashif Raza, the creator of the crypto education business Bitinning as provable and simple to file.

Additionally, Polygon announced a collaboration with the Ocean Conservation Exploration and Education Foundation (OCEEF) to advance ocean literacy by developing fresh, fun, and compelling approaches to introduce people to missions that take place deep underwater.
