Building Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs)
This time we had Maya Zhecheva from the Comrade Cooperative introducing us in Cosmos and Tendermint – based on her experience with leading the development of the Wetonomy and StrongForce projects.
Wetonomy offers a new economic model for balancing capital and labor in any kind of organizationwetonomy.com
Maya introduced us to the Wetonomy project and talked about how they’ve developed on top of Cosmos and Tendermint. She explained how the technology works and what is the communication flow and structure.
Inter-blockchain communication protocol
Cosmos is an upcoming modular framework and Tendermint-based blockchain platform designed as an ecosystem for application-specific blockchains to plug into. Cosmos is designed around the concept of standardizing communication between various blockchains that are part of its broader ecosystem to facilitate interoperability.
- makes blockchains powerful and easy to develop with Tendermint
BFT and the modularity of the Cosmos SDK.
- enables blockchains to transfer value with each other through IBC and Peg-Zones, while letting them retain their sovereignty.
- allows blockchain applications to scale to millions of users through horizontal and vertical scalability solutions.
The discussion formed around during Maya’s presentation was good and lots of opinions were exchanged and commented on.
