Building blocks for a new software economy. The open Wireline protocols enable the development of interoperable services that span blockchain and off-chain compute environments. Core protocols describe service discovery, execution, and identity. The Wireline Registry enables developers to create applications and services that dynamically discover, interact, and trade with each other using smart contracts. The network creates a new economy for developers, businesses, service providers, and end users. The Wireline ecosystem becomes an owners' collective that transcends today's proprietary platforms.
