Why Agoric? Excitement for Chain Abstraction and a Stellar Team

We sat down with Iulia to discuss what excites her most about joining Agoric:

"I'm joining Agoric for two key reasons," Iulia explains. "Firstly, I believe that in order for Web3 to become mainstream, we need to make apps accessible to everybody. This is what Agoric does well with Orchestration. It is a game-changer for developers to create web3 apps that resemble web2 seamless user experiences. It abstracts away all the blockchain complexities. More importantly, I love the idea that Agoric enables next-gen applications that deliver the full promise of Web3. More than just efficiency, it’s about creating new added value in the economy.

I'm honored to be joining a super-talented team led by such remarkable founders. Dean Tribble and Mark Miller are pioneers and their work has laid the foundation for scalable, secure blockchain solutions. I'm excited to contribute my expertise alongside this esteemed team and shape the future of Agoric."

A Look Ahead

With Iulia's leadership, Agoric is poised to accelerate its growth and establish itself as a leader in the Web3 revolution. She is joining Agoric at a pivotal step  - Orchestration launch - and plans to double up on showcasing the power of Orchestration through co-marketing with our reference partners and enabling our own community members to become our strongest advocates.

Dean’s statement:

“Iulia is a thoughtful and engaging leader who will empower our marketing team to build upon the strong foundation they have established. We're confident that Iulia's addition to the Agoric team will be instrumental in driving our mission forward: building a more inclusive and accessible Web3 future.”

Welcome aboard, Iulia!

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements and developments as we work together to unlock the full potential of Orchestration and empower developers to build the next generation of decentralized applications.
