Agoric is an ease-of-use Layer 1 protocol that focuses on composability in a Javascript working environment.
While most other protocols are built on less web-common languages, Agoric’s approach is to get more Web 2 developers into the Web 3 development space through increasing the usability of their platform. They intend to reach a state of “exponential composability” - where the ease of construction that Javascript provide will result in steady development, hopefully leading to a massive increase in development within the protocol.
