Salesforce to offer blockchain and crypto solutions
Salesforce is a cloud computing behemoth in Customer Relationship Management space. Parker Harris, co-founder of the company, seemed upbeat about blockchain at TrailheaDX conference. He said, “I hope that by Dreamforce we will have a Blockchain and cryptocurrency solution for Salesforce and for all of our customers.”
During World Economic Forum meeting this year Harris was approached by an executive at a hotel bar, and the idea of dabbling into blockchain space gathered momentum. Top executives at the company have been positive about the technology and its potential to disrupt cloud platforms.
Venrock, backed by Rockefeller dynasty marred Salesforce’s announcement. Venrock too announced that it had joined hands with blockchain startup company CoinFund to give a boost to business growth. CoinFund has recently added token-based financial services platform Coinlist, a spinoff of startup connection website AngelList, to the number of projects that it backs.
