    In this episode we talk to Dean Tribble, the CEO at Agoric, a secure smart contract platform built with the help of Tendermint & Cosmos-SDK.



    Dean's Twitter


    Agoric are a smart contracts platform (transfers of rights enforced in code). Agoric uses an object-capability (ocap) security architecture, in which access to a programming object itself is the authority to use the object. This approach has been used successfully to create secure operating systems, and to control untrusted scripts in Google’s Caja project and Salesforce’s Locker Service. Agoric is developing a secure distributed ocap platform for smart contracts and market-oriented programming. It supports the development of smart contracts and market institutions across many scales, from large public blockchains to small two-party contracts.


    We spoke to Dean about smart contracts, and:



    What is Agoric
    How Agoric is different from CosmWasm
    The team behind Agoric and their experience
    The use of Tendermint and Cosmos in Agoric
