About Cosmos (ATOM)
Cosmos is a blockchain protocol that fosters the exchange and the use of information existing in chains. It carries out its operation through a hub-and-spoke model.
This gives Cosmos the access to the design of other elements of other chains in order to activate cross-chain interaction.
The Cosmos framework showcases a Byzantine Fault-Tolerant (BFT) consensus algorithm designed by Tendermint to improve the security of the protocol.
