The cosmos is designed to build a network of blockchains. It’s an infrastructure project that it will benefit the entire cryptocurrency community. Cosmos is based on a proof-of-stake algorithm, called Tendermint. It goes back to Byzantine Fault Tolerance research, which exists decades before Bitcoin came out. Tendermint uses messages signed by secure validators to reach consensus about the state of network. There are two kinds of blockchains in Cosmos: Hub and Zone. They are all based on Tendermint consensus. And they can talk to each other by a protocol called IBC. Cosmos will enable the deep integration of token economics.
