Marketing Communications Associate

We believe smart contracts are the future of global economic exchange and cooperation. Agoric provides a platform for programming smart contracts securely and with ease, beyond anything available today.

ABOUT AGORIC

We believe anyone in the world should be able to cooperate, exchange, and make agreements with one another safely and with ease. Today, in every sector of the economy, there are massive costs and inefficiencies associated with these interactions and their verification. Information gets corrupted. Packages get lost. Money is stolen. Leading institutional economists have called this problem “the cost of trust,” which they say amounts to ~35% of global GDP (that’s a startling $30,000,000,000,000).

Smart contracts provide a solution to this problem. A smart contract is a contract-like arrangement, expressed in code, where the behavior of the program enforces the terms of the contract. With this technology, individuals, institutions, and businesses can cooperate and exchange in ways that were previously impossible. And yet, today, even the experts programming smart contracts have been making extremely expensive errors. The current method of programming smart contracts is too hard and too hazard-prone, and the losses are too great. In the current blockchain environment for smart contracts, security is a major impediment to having the technology grow into the larger economy and mainstream applications. So, Agoric has a different way.

Agoric is a platform that provides security and ease in programming smart contracts, unlike anything available today. Agoric’s mission is to provide a secure smart contracts platform to the entire blockchain ecosystem. With Agoric, which makes it easier to build and deploy smart contracts in a secure subset of JavaScript, millions of programmers worldwide will have safer, simpler tools to build smart contracts and applications. In addition, composability enables rapid development and competitive advantage. With secure smart contracts, we envision unprecedented, widespread forms of global cooperation, and entrepreneurs creating fundamentally new businesses enabled by digital assets. Agoric is here to make that opportunity a reality.
