Employing core developers and promoting collaboration, the Foundation develops and maintains the Counterparty reference client and related software and leads efforts to standardize protocols and technical specifications relating to Counterparty technology.


Building global alliances, the Counterparty Foundation promotes the use of the free and open Counterparty technology, advocating for its adoption wherever it might displace inferior solutions, ensuring the growth and maturation of the Counterparty network and its ecosystem.
