On Oct. 21, 2019, representatives from Agoric, Tendermint, FOAM, and oscoin gathered at Full Node in Berlin, Germany, to discuss the blockchain space's current need for interoperability protocols.
The CEO of Agoric, Dean Tribble, told CryptoSlate in an interview that his team would even be tinkering with both IBC and Polkadot to reach their ends.
The Agoric testnet has already launched on Tendermint and Cosmos SDK. Tendermint is a byzantine fault-tolerant consensus engine that powers the Cosmos blockchain.
Cosmos SDK is a developer's toolkit that allows anyone to build-out custom blockchains from scratch.
Because blockchains are not able to interact with one another, token holders of each network are hardpressed to imagine anything but a zero-sum game.
Dean Tribble of Agoric described interoperability as a critical diplomatic tool.
"Interoperability between blockchains creates more social bridges between communities. The key to diplomacy is to have open communications."
Like its interoperability ambitions, the goal is simple: expand the community.
Redefining the technical conversation of interoperability to one of social cohesion is certainly welcome in the blockchain space.
