The global trend
Is this a trend? Among the other multinational companies in the field of technology that have embraced blockchain technology lately, we find the Microsoft giant. It has recently launched its Coco platform and has accepted Bitcoin as payments within its Xbox and Windows Store. Facebook is another giant that has announced its intention to test the blockchain tech within the company’s operational management, just as Oracle has announced last days.
It seems that companies across the world have understood how blockchain technology works and what kind of benefits it can bring to organizational management.
