Radix: Blockchain Solutions
Radix provides developers with the base layer to build dApps on top of for services such as payments, borrowing, trading or lending for digital assets – like Ethereum but different “as a jumbo jet is to a biplane” according to Ridyard. End users can use those dApps without relying on any centralized service to hold their data.
The Crypto Journey
Ridyard started mining on Ethereum’s genesis block in 2015 which eventually led him to build Surematics – a Y combinator company that built decentralized deal room software for insurance companies in 2017. It was this experience that gave him insight into blockchain technology which brought him towards Radix today – one of crypto’s oldest companies at ten years next month!

End Goal In Mind
