Cosmos SDK

About Cosmos SDK

The Cosmos SDK is an open-source framework designed for constructing multi-asset public Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchains, such as the Cosmos Hub, alongside permissioned Proof-of-Authority (PoA) blockchains. These blockchains, developed using the Cosmos SDK, are commonly known as application-specific blockchains.

What are Application-Specific Blockchains?

Application-specific blockchains present a significantly distinct development paradigm compared to virtual-machine blockchains. An application-specific blockchain is tailored to support a single application, offering developers complete autonomy to make design decisions that optimize the application's performance. Additionally, application-specific blockchains can deliver enhanced sovereignty, security, and performance compared to virtual-machine blockchains.
