Cosmos Hub

The main component in the Cosmos Network is the Cosmos Hub. The Hub is a multi-asset PoS cryptocurrency with a simple governance mechanism that allows independent blockchains (zones) to communicate to each other via an Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol. This allows tokens to be transferred from one zone to another securely and quickly without the need for exchange liquidity between zones. Instead, all inter-zone token transfers go through the Cosmos Hub.

The Hub keeps track of the total amount of tokens held by each zone, and isolates them if one of them fails.

Note: this considers the Cosmos Network with one hub for simplicity, but any zone can become a hub
