Cosmos Network Update | 10.2020

Stargate Update

A central pillar to fulfill the vision of Cosmos is Stargate, a set of upgrades that will enable Cosmos blockchains to connect and exchange transactions of value and data via a standardized protocol for inter-blockchain communication, simply referred to as IBC.

  • automatic and much faster upgrades
  • full-featured light clients
  • increased throughput & performance as well as lower gas costs and easier UI development through Protobuf
  • a wider array of supported programming languages

Ethermint v0.2.0 Release

Standard Ethereum functionality for Cosmos blockchains is provided through Ethermint, a Cosmos SDK module. Cosmos chains implementing Ethermint are interoperable with the Ethereum-Virtual-Machine, Ethereum smart contracts, client software and, tooling. The difference is that Ethermint uses PoS instead of PoW. It provides instant finality as well as IBC compatibility. Ethermint v0.2.0 has several bug fixes and improvements, which you can find here:
