In this episode, we talk to Ethan Frey, founder & CEO of CosmWasm and Tgrade.
CosmWasm allows you to build robust dApps, on secure, multi-chain smart contracts. It is built using Cosmos-SDK/Tendermint and Rust. This allows your contracts to run on multiple chains, utilizing IBC (InterBlockchian Communication Protocol).
Tgrade is labeled as the Bigbang of Regulated Blockchain technology., with a vision for self-sovereign groups, bound by their local jurisdiction and regulations, trading P2P programmable financial instruments. It is a self-sovereign framework which ensures the principle of decentralization. Institutions within a given jurisdiction can each a self-sovereign group and ensure they comply with their local regulations. On-chain financial instruments controlled by self-sovereign groups, and on-chain governance complying with corresponding off-chain regulations, is the key solution.
