How you’ll thrive in
the Agoric economy

We’ve been working in smart contracts for decades, since long before it was called blockchain. Agoric was founded on open-source principles optimized for a booming, collaborative, public economy.

  • Public Chain

    Where market participants bid to have their transactions confirmed by validators. Stakers delegate their native staking token to validators to incentivize the correct execution of transactions, and are rewarded for securing the network.

    Public Chain
  • Local Currency Machine

    A consistent unit of account that enables dapps to work together. Because they have consistent pricing, businesses can budget for the resources they need. Keeps services in a fair and balanced economy.

  • Staking

    The Staking Market is where market participants in the Agoric ecosystem bid to have their transactions confirmed by validators. Stakers delegate their native staking token BLD to validators to incentivize the correct execution of transactions. Staking tokens give validators the right to participate in the network by validating transactions, and stakers earn rewards for securing the network. Validators who misbehave have their (delegated) stake slashed.
