To realize the vision of a global financial marketplace, Huddl infrastructure requires a powerful blend of both distributed and centralized technology – infrastructure that will allow the Huddl platform to launch with the immediate and powerful “utility” of the HUDDL token. When designing the Huddl Platform, we knew from the beginning that achieving the lofty goals we set for ourselves required the very best technology and partners.

When searching for partners to optimize a blockchain-powered business, it was immediately evident we needed someone who could offer Huddl a broad set of blockchain capabilities. While surveying the landscape and discussing the experiences of other FinTech blockchain firms, like ourselves, a single firm’s name consistently came up. This firm had been quietly establishing a track record amongst a list of current customers that includes many leading blockchain financial firms and custody service providers. These facts, along with a review of their technology, provided all the remaining assurances we needed. This firm is Hedge – our choice for a comprehensive blockchain solution.

Our decision to select Hedge as our vendor-partner 9 months ago was driven by many factors: their ability to significantly reduce the time and complexity of managing cryptographic keys, building and maintaining infrastructure, and streamlining network interaction were all major factors. Hedge’s capabilities are immensely valuable as they allow Huddl to focus on building robust functionality at speed.

Hedge Secure – their key management custody product – mitigates risks throughout the process, including, implementing multi-sig like policies, managing hardware-backed key custody, network interactions, and more.

As Huddl deepens its integration with numerous public and private blockchains over the next several quarters, we fully expect to leverage Hedge’s most recent service offering, Hedge Connect. Hedge Connect is a fully-managed platform for deploying blockchain nodes with just a few clicks. This allows Huddl to get up and running with public or private nodes to a variety of protocols including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tezos, EOS, Decred, and more.
