The different layers of Agate’s Blockchain architecture include:
Layer 01 – Different Cryptocurrencies on Different Blockchain
With the Testnet of the Blockchain platform already live, Agate’s AGT coin, an ERC 20 compatible cryptocurrency is at the core of every transaction within the blockchain ecosystem. With Agate’s platform, users can presently deposit, store and transact in five different crypto assets include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ripple. However, still in the developmental phase, a full set of decentralized blockchain system will have the ability to support over 17 different cryptocurrencies that is expected to be released by Q4 2018.

Designed to handle millions of transactions simultaneously with near instant settlement speeds, Agate’s Blockchain platform offers complete cryptoeconomy solutions while providing a variety of applications for user as well as merchants, making crypto-adoption a smooth experience.
The User-Facing Functionalities include

Layer 03 – iFiat Ecosystem Running of Agate Blockchain
Introducing iFiat tokens, a Fiat pegged-cryptocurrency that runs of Agate’s iFiat ecosystem, which uses Agate’s decentralized blockchain, it aims to resolve the most fundamental issues revolving around the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies. While most users have a concern of crypto-volatility, Agate’s iFiat ecosystem eliminates the very volatile nature of such digital assets, paving way for users to adopt crypto-payments smoothly. An iFiat token is a highly stable cryptocurrency and pegged at a ratio of 1:1 with the underlying asset say US Dollar.
Using the iFiat ecosystem the payments are processed in real time and while a customer will have the ability to pay in 17 different cryptocurrencies; the same is converted instantly into an iFiat token and stored on the merchant’s iBucket wallet, helping users to realize the full dollar value of the products and services being sold.
Layer 04 – Gateway to Fiat Economy
With Agate’s iFiat ecosystem, a user is enabled with a support of multiple different Fiat currency including USD, EUR, GBP, JPY and AUD with present support of US Dollars. Every iFiat tokens are fully redeemable into any of the given Fiat currency and can be instantly loaded onto physical/virtual debit cards or Bank Transfers. This gives users full freedom to exchange their cryptocurrency with Fiat currency at any point in time, offering a gateway to Fiat economy.
With the Mainnet Launch of Agate’s platform expected in Q1 of 2019, all ERC 20 Agate tokens will be swapped with AGT coins in the ratio of 1:1, marking an independent existence of Agate’s Blockchain within the Blockchain space.
With multiple developments planned in a phased manner, Agate’s Multi-Blockchain Architecture holds the potential to disrupt existing use-case blockchain solutions while creating mass-awareness for complete adoption of cryptocurrencies in daily lives.
