At Hedera, we’re constantly looking at ways that we can improve our onboarding experience for new developers and enthusiasts within our community - always with a goal to become the most widely used distributed public ledger in the market. I’m excited to share the first of a variety of new changes to the Hedera website, portal, and documentation that we’ve made as part of these ongoing efforts.
While you may be familiar with Hedera’s unique consensus algorithm, hashgraph, which (even while throttled) allows us to process 10,000+ cryptocurrency transactions per second - or our Governing Council, which LG and Avery Dennison recently joined, there are a number of notable differences in functionality between our network and the likes of Ethereum, Polkadot, or EOS. Let’s dive into a few of the lesser-known things that you can do with Hedera “out of the box”.
3IEIO is the first known application in Hedera’s ecosystem to put the DID specification to use, and the first HRTech solution in the world to leverage such technology.

By leveraging the resources available from Hedera and DragonGlass, HumanKind went from having no prior experience with Hedera Hashgraph, to building a robust, award-winning decentralized marketplace in a few short weeks. Learn more about the application they started building during the Hedera20 virtual hackathon, which uses cryptoeconomic incentive mechanisms to award good deeds, and hear direct technical insights from their team in this blog post.
The Hedera previewnet will use a codebase that's still under development by the Hedera team. It’s designed to offer developers early exposure to features and functionalities that will eventually make their way to the mainnet.
