This April, Dean Tribble and the Agoric OpCo team were in Seoul for Korea Blockchain Week 2024, where Dean had the opportunity to speak at several key events to share his insights on orchestration, chain abstraction, and other trends in web3–including our upcoming API

Thank you to the organizers of BUIDL Week, Chain Abstraction Day Seoul, and Cosmos Seoul who put together high quality events that brought together builders and entrepreneurs from Seoul and around the world!


At BUIDL Asia, Dean Tribble was part of the "World of Chain Abstraction" panel alongside notable figures such as Vitalik Buterin, Illia Poloskhin from NEAR, and Adrian Brink from Anoma, under the moderation of Zaki Manian. This discussion highlighted diverse approaches to chain abstraction and important considerations like security, usability, and systemic risks.
