Salesforce hoping to have blockchain solution by September 2018

Salesforce has been quietly working on its own blockchain project, according to co-founders Marc Benioff and Parker Harris.

Speaking to Business Insider last month, Benioff said that he had recently been thinking about the company’s position in the emerging sector, and how it could use blockchain to its advantage.

He said: “I had been thinking a lot about what is Saleforce’s strategy around blockchain, and what is Salesforce’s strategies around cryptocurrencies and how will we relate to all of these things… A lot comes from paying attention, listening. There’s new ideas coming all the time.”

Current plans are for Saleforce to have a blockchain and cryptocurrency solution to show at the Dreamforce conference in San Francisco, which takes place from September 25-28.
