ICF Spotlight: Agoric

The Interchain Foundation (ICF) is proud to collaborate with Agoric to build and support the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol. Agoric brings composable, reusable, safe, smart contracts with a new security model to blockchain networks. Composable decentralized finance (DeFi) smart contracts will be reliable, more affordable to execute, and accessible — written in JavaScript.

The Agoric team consists of long experienced and respected developers. In particular, they are distinguished network protocol and JavaScript developers and standards creators. They have created an infrastructure that lets smart contracts, applications, and other code safely interact across networks in lightweight, isolated, compartments. These range from open and permissionless networks to off-chain databases. Interoperability is a core Agoric value, and the team’s prior work makes them especially well-qualified to help build and support IBC. Read more
