The idea for Hub20 started taking shape during my time working on Raiden, due to the frustration of dealing with all the system's complexity and the work required to get a running, working node. "If even the people working on the system have such a hard time to get it working, how can we expect this to be accessible for the general public?"

Truth be told, this is not an issue exclusive to Raiden. The absolute majority of web3 projects are still in their infancy and the technology is still far from being an accessible topic.
