Mainnet Phase 0Mainnet Phase 0 is the first of 4 phases as we bring the Agoric mainnet to the community. During this phase early investors and validators set up their BLD tokens on the Agoric chain in order to launch a decentralized public chain. For reference, our chain is built using the Cosmos SDK, which was also used to build chains like Regen, Akash, and Osmosis.

It uses examples from transportation and food to blockchain, and is very positive on the consequences and prospects. Thierer considers entrepreneurial activity that skirts the question of legality to be a form.  Edward Chidothe is reading The Sovereign Individual: Mastering the Transition to the Information Age James Davidson’s book explores the social and financial consequences of revolutionary change.
