What is Cosmos?

Cosmos is a cryptocurrency that was developed to improve upon the shortcomings of Bitcoin. Cosmos aims to create a decentralized network of blockchains, which it calls “zones.” These zones can communicate with each other through a central blockchain, called the “Hub.” The idea is that this will allow for greater scalability and interoperability than what is currently possible with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Cosmos also aims to improve upon the governance model of Bitcoin, by giving users more control over the rules and parameters of the network. Finally, Cosmos seeks to create a more user-friendly experience than what is currently available on the Bitcoin network.
