Headline: Scaling blockchains with Cosmos

Abstract:

Adrian Brink, a core developer at Tendermint and the Cosmos project will present the following:

Scaling blockchains with Cosmos will provide you with the technical insight how to scale any blockchain application and how to connect many different chains.

Cosmos is a decentralized network of independent parallel blockchains, each powered by classical BFT consensus algorithms like Tendermint.

The first blockchain in the Cosmos network is the Cosmos Hub, whose native token is the Atom. Cosmos is a permissionless network, meaning that anybody can build a blockchain on it.
