The following is a quick recap what Cosmos is from the official website at https://cosmos.network:

  1. Cosmos makes blockchains powerful and easy to develop with Tendermint Core and the modularity of the Cosmos SDK.
  2. Cosmos enables blockchains to transfer value with each other through IBC and Peg-Zones, while letting them retain their sovereignty.
  3. Cosmos allows blockchain applications to scale to millions of users through horizontal and vertical scalability solutions.

More than anything, Cosmos is not a product but an ecosystem built on a set of modular, adaptable and interchangeable tools. Developers are encouraged to join the effort to improve existing tools and create new ones in order to make the promise of blockchain technology a reality. These tools are the foundation needed to create the decentralized internet and global financial system of tomorrow.
