TFB#17: The Hydrogen Team on building the Financial Web 3.0

June 24, 2019

In this podcast, we talked to Mark Anstead, Harsh Rajat and Saurav Kumar from the Hydrogen Team. Mark, Harsh and Saurav are the decentralization ambassadors for the platform. The Hydrogen platform allows enterprises and developers globally to prototype, build, test, and deploy financial technology applications and products. Hydro and Atom are the key products that are launched by the platform. Atom allows users to develop digital financial applications, while Hydro allows the use of public blockchains in private financial systems. Hydrogen won the FinTech Rising Star Trophy in the India FinTech Awards 2018. The platform also has a community development programme called Hydro Community Development Program (HCDP). This allows the community to take on development tasks like SDK and code library development, bugs and software improvement etc. and they are rewarded with Hydro (HYDRO) tokens.
