Agoric Speaker Series

Higher Order Smart Contracts

May 7, 2019 San Francisco, California

For smart contracts to reach their potential, they will need to safely compose and run across chains. Mark Miller will show how ocaps and erights enable complex smart contracts across chains.

Institutional Cryptoeconomics

May 7, 2019 San Francisco, California

Professor Potts and Dr Berg from the RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub present Institutional Cryptoeconomics – a new field of research that allows us to understand which sectors of industries, and organisations will be disrupted by blockchain technology, and the new governance models that will support that disruption.

Distributed Programming for a Decentralized World

July 15, 2019 San Francisco, California

1/4 Mark Miller introduces the Agoric stack for creating safe, composable and interoperable smart contracts.

2/4 Mark Miller shows how JavaScript can be used as a secure, object-capability language. With SES, our secure JavaScript runtime, developers can write robust and reliable smart contracts.

3/4 Mark shows how our vat model, through the IBC and CapTP protocols, can turn SES into a distributed, cross-chain, secure programming language.

4/4 Mark introduces the Agoric contract layer as a distinct layer of abstraction that makes defining and exchanging digital assets (erights) as simple as standard programming.
