  • Deserializing blockchain data into JavaScript objects with native data types and methods
  • Serializing objects back into a blockchain-compatible format
  • Providing access to the terrad node API (LCD) from a JavaScript-based interface
  • Providing additional utilities, such as hash functions and key-signing algorithms
