1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / The Hydro Events Marketplace dApp (beta) is now open for public testing on: February 11, 2020, 12:05:21 PM


The Hydro Events Marketplace v1.0 (beta) dApp is now open for public testing.


What is the Hydro Events Marketplace?
An event platform is a great way to promote your event, get an idea of numbers, and guarantee attendance, while having all of your payment processing taken care of. However, this multi-million dollar industry has traditionally been dominated by a few centralised services such as Eventbrite and Meetup, who charge millions of users huge fees for their services. We have now decided to disrupt this market area by creating a simple, low fee, platform where you have full control of your events.

What does testing involve?
The store is not live yet; it is on the Rinkeby Testnet so we can test features, user experience, and receive feedback at no cost to the user. This means that although you can set up events and interact with the dApp, you canít actually sell any tickets at the current time.

Feedback
As part of this public beta we really need your feedback so please test the platform and share your feedback on bugs, usability, and features. We look forward to receiving your feedback and pushing out the full platform as soon as possible.

Full details can be found in the official blog post: https://projecthydro.org/blog/the-hydro-events-marketplace-beta-is-now-open-for-public-testing/


2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN][HYDRO] Hydro Pay - fast, feeless, payments for everyone on: June 28, 2019, 06:02:42 PM
Hydro Pay - fast, feeless, payments for everyone
Release date 06/29/2019


Download APK:
Google Play Store
iOs - Coming Soon


Video Teaser:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HydroPay



Created by Hydro Labs, the Hydro Pay app is a fully P2P crypto transfer app thatís designed to pay and receive hydro from one person to another - without a fee. Hydro Pay is not about creating the concept of P2P but rather to just make it simple. And who doesnít like something thatís simple, easy to use, and free to use.





Transferring hydro to your friends and family feels just like sharing cash to one another, both in the concept of transferring hydro and the concept of being free. Your friends wouldnít charge you a fee to give you money, so why should crypto be charged between friends for something that it just as P2P as handling cash?

When getting started with downloading the Hydro Pay app, which will be available on Google Play for public release and iOS in the short future, there were no hiccups in the process of load times, it seems very natural with almost no load times. Once the app is launched, you are welcomed with a sign up screen showing the features and details of the Hydro Pay app - most prominent are the graphics that illustrate the ease of use and feeless transfers. You must create your Hydro ID with an option to recover an ID if you have already created one on a separate device. The sign up was minimal and fast, starting with adding your name, email, and phone number and receiving a confirmation code via SMS to complete the setup. One the SMS code is added to the Hydro Pay app, thatís it! Youíre ready to use the app. Currently, the app sign up gives you 10,000 hydro tokens (approx. 15USD) for you to start spending and using the app.

Once the sign up is complete, you are given the option to add a photo to your profile and also given a unique Hydro ID. This ID is the number required to pay and receive hydro tokens for all your transactions. The profile creation was very smooth, better than most sign ups easily.





The main page is very well presented with a minimalistic and sleek layout. There is one main ďcardĒ presented in the middle-center that shows the hydro balance in the bottom left, HYDRO/USD balance toggle in the top right, hydro icon in the top left, and the option to add more hydro tokens in the bottom right. At this time, the app is run entirely using hydro tokens. Above the payment card is your personal profile with the notification list in the very top left with the settings tab to the very top right. Below the payment card is two buttons - one for requesting hydro and another for paying hydro to someone else. Overall, itís a very comfortable layout with all the relevant information where you think it should be. Below those two buttons and the rest of the bottom part of the main screen is the transaction history, which should be blank if you are a new user.





Paying and requesting hydro is extremely simple as well. Pressing the payment button transitions away from the main screen and to the payment screen, which has a huge but unitrusive number pad that enables you to pay a certain USD amount or hydro token amount. Toggling between the two gives to the exchange rate. Overall, itís very simple but natural. Adding in an amount will take you to the recipient page, where you will choose an ID to send. Also, itís worth noting beforehand that if you donít have a sufficient balance in your account, it will not let you proceed. Switching to the recipient page is a little twitchy on the first time, but nothing intrusive and disappears after using it again. You simply enter a Hydro ID, whoever your friends or family that have also created a Hydro Pay account, and you hit the pay button. Thatís all there is to it! After a few seconds, you will see the payment in the transaction history tab. Requesting money is just as simple.

The Public Ledger for Financial Services



Website | Telegram | Twitter | Reddit | Blog | GitHub



Hydro allows private systems to interface with a public blockchain. We propose a new hybrid private-public model that enables financial services platforms to leverage the dynamics of a distributed, transparent, and immutable public ledger. The project focuses on particular areas where this can add value, such as authentication, identity management, document security, transactions, and artificial intelligence.






Background

Hydro is part of the parent company Hydrogen. Hydrogen is a tech platform for developers and enterprises in the financial services space. Its modular set of APIs offers digital infrastructure and capabilities to quickly prototype, build, test, and deploy sophisticated financial technology platforms and products globally.

We began an integration of blockchain tech as part of the Hydrogen platform during the summer of 2017. Our main consideration was how the Hydrogen API ecosystem, being fundamentally private, can be enhanced by a public blockchain layer. As we laid out our plans to accomplish that, we also realized that our proposed private-public hybrid model can and should be used to enhance systems of all kinds. We are excited to announce Hydro as an open technology suite, with its ongoing implementation in Hydrogen serving as a point of immediate adoption.




Design Principles

We are building Hydro on the Ethereum infrastructure, although we remain platform agnostic. We intend to leverage the thousands of developers globally that are working to make underlying blockchain technology faster, stronger, and more efficient. Hydro focuses on developing product-oriented capabilities, largely centered around smart contract functionality.

Our main design philosophy is that of augmenting off-chain systems rather than outright replacing them. We do not believe that all economic activity will or should move on-chain. Rather, distributed ledger technology can serve to enhance those underlying, fundamentally private systems in specific ways. Hydro is laser-focused on making that a reality and synergizing with the current environment, in order to facilitate real-world adoption of blockchain tech in a meaningful way and introduce the benefits of decentralization, immutability, and transparency.




What Sets Hydro Apart?

Hydro is architected as an independent parallel layer, and its value comes from various interactions between the private and public layers. This means an underlying private system does not need to change in any fundamental way or create any costly new architecture - allowing even large institutions to rapidly adopt blockchain technology beyond the proof-of-concept phase.

Additionally, Hydro is implemented natively into the Hydrogen API ecosystem, offering immediate and direct access to Hydro capabilities. Hydrogen can power many kinds of platforms and applications across the financial services sphere (investing, savings, insurance, financial wellness, etc.) and the company works with a range of clients, from individual developers up to large financial enterprises.




Raindrop

The first Hydro release deals with something that is core to all systems - authentication and security. It was conceived to provide additional protection for sensitive data that is increasingly at risk of breach. In the proposed framework, dubbed ?Raindrop?, on-chain operations performed via smart contract can validate access to private, off-chain systems. This validation layer complements standard private authentication and authorization protocols, such as Google Authenticator and OAuth 2.0, by acting as an additional public factor that must be satisfied before system access is granted. The worldwide developer community, through the decentralized and transparent consensus mechanisms of the blockchain, can now offer greater protection to billions of pieces of sensitive data from bad actors.

The Raindrop authentication process involves 4 entities: an Accessor trying to gain access, a System that denies or grants access, the Hydro module (off-chain), and a Hydro smart contract (on-chain). An example of a System is a REST API, while an example of an Accessor is an API developer. The diagram below depicts how these entities interact during part of the process.





Please see the white paper and website for more detailed information about how Raindrop works.




Token Distribution for Developers

As of today, developers can sign up for Hydrogen as part of the Hydro rollout. Sign-ups will be limited to the first 25,000 developers and will conclude on 2/16/18. At the culmination of the sign-up period, a minimum of 222,222 Hydro tokens will be distributed to each developer for use in integrating Raindrop authentication and further developing with Hydro and Hydrogen.

Hydrogen is a platform built by developers for developers, and there is no cost to sign up. We encourage people to make world-changing applications using Hydro from day one, with no barriers.




Token Dynamics

Hydro utilizes an ERC-20 standard token. The total token supply is 11,111,111,111 (for the atomic number 1). Of those tokens, up to 50% will be distributed to the developers who successfully sign up during the rollout period described above. 20% of the token supply will form a treasury, to be used in promoting the ongoing health of the Hydro ecosystem. The final 30% is reserved for the team.






We are very excited to launch Hydro and see the amazing ways in which it is used by developers of all kinds! Feel free to comment and ask any questions below - we look forward to engaging with the community!

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] 💦💦 HYDRO 💦💦 Security & Identity on the Blockchain on: January 18, 2018, 05:58:09 PM
UPDATED




*****************************************
Hydro is a decentralized ecosystem using cutting-edge cryptography to secure user accounts, identities, and transactions.






The Hydro Ecosystem

The goal of the project is to create an ecosystem of power-ups that platforms can leverage, in order to easily integrate blockchain technology in ways that add value. The graphic below sets out our vision for Hydro:





Raindrop is an authentication protocol which vastly improves upon current 2FA standards with decentralized public blockchain security for logins, transactions, and payments.

Snowflake is an identity protocol designed to protect private data from identity theft on the blockchain by providing a major barrier to identity theft attempts.

Ice is a document signing and verification protocol which will allow users to stamp, authenticate, verify and seal any document or contract that is sent.

Mist is an artificial intelligence that will create data modeling of transactions to enable fraud detection on the blockchain.

Tide is a payment protocol which will allow for one-click authorization of debit and credit POS transactions, as well as instantaneous p2p, p2b, and b2b payments across the blockchain.

Hail is tokenization on the blockchain. Under the hood it is a framework of Solidity Smart Contracts which work on top of the Hydro Snowflake protocol.

Hydro Community Development Program!

The HCDP is a core program to Project Hydro. It is a collection of paid developer bounties run by the Hydro Community to advance the ecosystem or its products. Any community member can post and create a task for others to fulfill. These tasks could be for an SDK or library, dApps (Solidity), tutorials, enhancements and more. Tasks get assigned a bounty total and are paid upon fulfilling the requirements.

To view a list of open tasks , visit our active HCDP page.

And to view a list of tasks successfully completed as part of the HCDP by our growing developer community to advance the Hydro ecosystem. Developers can utilize these plugins, smart contracts and code in their development to jump start their project or leverage advanced functionality without re-inventing the wheel. Visit our completed HCDP page.


Foundation Update

We are at the last phase in setting up the foundation, We selected BVI(British Virgin Islands). The final required documents are in the process . As soon as it's done we'll pay the lawyers to incorporate the Foundation in BVI
