Dean began his talk by tracing the roots of their vision, which originated in the 1980s when networks started becoming widely available. The vision revolved around creating software that allows strangers to cooperate by enforcing the terms of agreements they make.
The Agoric platform, according to Dean, is more than just a collection of contracts; it is a dynamic ecosystem with various elements such as AMMs, lending protocols, and ticket sales. The focus is on enabling cooperation among strangers in the broader economy, creating abundant opportunities for developers.
Deterministic execution, and data system
Dean also revealed Agoric’s economic integration, partnerships with custody services, trading platforms, and bridges connecting various blockchain networks. The presentation touched on various applications built on Agoric, including Crable for NFT lending, and Calypso for interchain trading.
As Agoric moves from the launch phase into scaling, he mentioned that the focus will also be on IST (Inter Stable Token), a stable token intrinsic to Agoric’s tokenomics.
