Cosmos network

Cosmos is a blockchain network architecture consisting of various independent blockchains called zones which are connected to each other by the Cosmos Hub.

Cosmos is a blockchain network architecture run by the Interchain Foundation. The company is headquartered in Zug, Switzerland and was founded in 2016 by Ethan Buchman and Jae Kwon. Cosmos consists of various independent blockchains called zones. Zones are connected to each other by Cosmos Network Hubs; the digital ledgers responsible for token swapping between zones. Cosmos Network Hubs connect directly with zones, instead of zones directly connecting with each other; reducing the risk of double spending and unfreezing of tokens.
