Agoric Partners With Anchorage Digital for Token Launch Support

New crypto protocols are increasingly focused on platform security from their onset, knowing that trust is key to standing out and building critical momentum at launch. It should come as no surprise, then, that they are increasingly partnering with Anchorage Digital–the trusted digital asset platform for institutions. The latest such partnership, with Agoric, looks to change the game by balancing impregnable security with broad-based accessibility.

“We pride ourselves on our engineering commitment. It’s what allows our institutional clients early access to emerging technologies and new, exciting protocols. With Agoric, they can do so confidently–knowing that we’ve laid the groundwork for secure custody and staking that meets the standard they’ve grown to expect from Anchorage Digital. Best of all, they can do so right when the Agoric JavaScript stack launches.”

— Diogo Mónica, Co-Founder and President, Anchorage Digital

Agoric, a layer-1, proof-of-stake blockchain, is part of the Cosmos ecosystem. Widely lauded for its potential to serve as a developer on-ramp to crypto, Agoric utilizes smart contracts written in the popular programming language JavaScript, a key differentiator for the chain that lends it mass appeal. The BLD token is used to reward validators and their delegators for their work, assuring the network stays secure and decentralized, and will be the asset held in custody and staked by Anchorage Digital on behalf of our institutional clients.

Anchorage Digital will also provide the Agoric treasury with custody, bringing the security guarantees of a regulated and sophisticated technical partner to its community.

“We are delighted that Anchorage Digital will offer secure and efficient custody for Agoric BLD. This enables our community of developers and institutional partners to focus on building our ecosystem.”

— Dean Tribble, CEO of Agoric
