Cosmos Network Architecture


#1

Good day!

New member of the Cosmos community here! I’ve been sucked in by one of the validator teams, looking to shore up the security of their setup. Honestly, I didn’t know Cosmos from AnyOtherCoin a few days ago, and I’m really digging the project goals.

One thing that took me a while to wrap my head around was the network architecture: what the different components are and how they talk to each other. I think I’m probably 90% of the way there now and wanted to capture my findings, so I put together this blog post to capture my findings thus far.

I wanted to share this for two reasons:

  1. Help out others who are trying to figure out the same, and
  2. Get feedback on anything I got wrong or key features I may have missed.
    If you have any feedback, feel free to post it there, post it here, or DM me.

Cheers!
Terry
