Jelurida is a provider of blockchain software and learning services with headquarters in Lugano. The company will now be supporting Henkel, a German manufacturer engaged in consumer and industrial business with sales of more than €20 billion. Jelurida will help Henkel to build the capacity of product and IT teams to understand, approach and implement blockchain solutions, it was reported in a press release. Drawing on Jelurida’s expertise is part of Henkel’s 2020+ strategy to accelerate digitalization across the company. The partners kicked off the engagement with a joint workshop at Henkel’s Düsseldorf headquarters at the end of March.
Among the solutions developed by Jelurida is the Ardor Blockchain Platform, which is not only a money transfer system, but also supports the trading of digital goods, the creation of custom currencies and decentralized crowdfunding.
