Beta brings a new economy

The Agoric beta introduces the foundational elements of our economy. We invite you to experience DeFi on Agoric, take a look under the hood, and start building with us.

Get Ahead of the Curve

Beta is a prime opportunity for developers to get ahead of the curve. Using Agoric’s testnet environment, you can rapidly build and deploy smart contracts atop a rich economy that incorporates test versions of our new BLD staking token and RUN local currency. A new collection of DeFi legos gives access to our beta app where users can open treasury vaults or interact with our automated market maker. Join the fun by modifying our open treasury code and building your own projects leading up to mainnet. We can’t wait to see what you make!

Explore Vaults

Try Beta Today

Treasury vaults are the starting place for new users entering the Agoric economy. They are the only way to generate Agoric’s local currency RUN

Participate in the Agoric economy

To ensure that the system remains collateralized, vaults in Agoric are subject to liquidation if the price of the collateral drops. Your collateralization rate is your margin of safety

Get liquidity from your idle collateral

Set your collateralization rate

Pluggable liquidation models

Version 1 of the vaults liquidate assets directly on the Swap. However, the liquidation component is pluggable and can be upgraded. Can you build a smarter way for us to liquidate?

Got Ideas?

  • Implement new liquidation mechanisms
  • Add new curves for the AMM
  • Enhance the UI for the treasury and AMM
  • We invite you to participate

Test the Swap

Try Beta Today

Swap is an automated market maker and decentralized exchange that pairs up liquidity providers with users who wish to trade tokens.

Liquidity focal point

Swap will be a source of liquidity for BLD and RUN tokens and will be a centerpiece of the Agoric economy.

Offer safety built in

Agoric enforces an exchange of assets at the protocol level, so you can never be tricked by a malicious contract. For Swap transactions, your wallet shows you both a Give and a Want

Contract APIs

Your smart contract can programmatically trade, react to price changes, and more.

Pluggable curve models (Soon!)

Version 1 of the Swap uses an X*Y=K curve model for its pools. Later versions will be expanded with pluggable curve and fee models.

Bring Your Edge

  • Try your hand at better curve models
  • Make Swap fees variable
  • Incorporate price volatility and pool depth
  • What else you got?

Tutorials to get you started

  • How To: Create Your Wallet
