Summer '23 Editions: Fast, flexible, future-proof—How we’re evolving Hydrogen

It’s been just over a year since Hydrogen 1.0 shipped — and what a year. There are now thousands of merchants building with the Hydrogen and Oxygen stack, and hundreds already running in production today, processing over $1 billion in sales.
