This week Dan Harrison, a master technical architect with Salesforce’s Emerging Technology team, joins us to talk about Salesforce Blockchain.

What is blockchain? It is a rapidly progressing technology often considered a part of cryptocurrency. The core technology is actually known as digital ledger. In this episode, Dan walks us through what exactly that means.

Blockchain and digital ledger technology is not technology we are waiting for the future to use. This technology is getting put into production right now. Dan also shares implementation of the Salesforce blockchain into the Salesforce concept, how developers can interact with it and some examples for customer use. All that and more on this episode of the Salesforce Developer Podcast.
