Cosmos Network Architecture

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.



This is awesome @drzow! Thanks for sharing!
