Agoras is an application over Tau, being first and foremost a smart currency. It will allow smart contracts, but rather too-”smart” contracts like the bank hands you, it allows meaningful contracts only – contracts that you can know their consequences beforehand. That thanks to the decidability of Tau-Chain's language. Please refer to tau's materials for more information.
Agoras will support true peer-to-peer contracts too: business that don't need a public arena to take place, can take place between two Agoras clients.
In addition, Agoras will offer several markets besides being merely a currency, like hiring programmers in our innovative way that eliminates the need of trust (see “Code and Money” blogpost), renting computational resources (see Zennet to get impression of uses and market size), and decentralized yet incentivized search engine.
