Hey guys :) I’m back with another long list of partnerships and integrations. This time it's for a lesser-known, smaller-cap cryptocurrency project called Hydro (HYDRO).
In the following article, I dive into each and every one of Hydro’s partnerships and integrations and give you a basic rundown of what each one entails.
But first, if you’re unfamiliar with Hydro Project, I’ll give you a quick summary:
Hydro (HYDRO) is an open-source blockchain project that aims to usher in a new global decentralized economy built on top of its revolutionary set of Hydro protocols.
The Hydro project has a strong focus on Application and Document Security, Identity Management, Verification, Transactions, Artificial intelligence, and Security Tokenization.
Bringing these areas of focus to life is Hydro’s global community of smart contract and product development specialists as well as their many partnerships and product integrations.
That being said, Hydro has an array of interesting partnerships and integrations with various companies and platforms.
And guess what?
I divulge the details of each and every one that I could find below.
Hope you enjoy the read!
