From the HOD's desk


This is with great pride and excitement that I present to you, the ninth edition of Buffered Reader, marking the magazine’s fifth year since its commencement. Over the years, BufferedReader has evolved to be the lifeline of the CSE department, gaining accolades from students, faculty and alumni alike. The hard work and perseverance shown by the Editorial and Designing team in putting up each edition of this magazine is remarkable and I extend my sincere thanks to all of them.

With the advance of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and many more cryptocurrencies, and their revolutionary effects, this edition talks about how they came into existence and why they may very well be the future of world economy.

This edition provides a glimpse into the various departmental activities, aimed at providing maximum opportunities for our students. With a heavy heart we bid farewell to the batch of 2018 and I wish them all the very best in their future endeavours. I am thankful to Ashish Gupta for sharing his wisdom and experience and I hope our students can learn a lot from him.

This edition is a testament of the long way we have come since its humble beginnings and the challenges we faced. It also reminds us that we must continue with our hard work, and it is the dedication of the students towards this magazine that will help us reach greater heights. To all the readers, your honest feedback regarding the content, quality and design of the magazine will be highly appreciated. Do share it with us at
