Too Long; Didn't Read

Cosmos is a network architecture that allows multiple parallel blockchains to interact and share data. It aims to create the next Internet where blockchains replace computers. As a result, no one will feel the need to compete, and they can all coexist under one umbrella ecosystem. The Cosmos network adopts an independent approach for building blockchains within the Cosmos ecosystem. Cosmos Tendermint consensus mechanism uses a gossip protocol to fast-track peer-to-peer communication. The application layer defines transactions made on blockchain and submits them to the consensus layer.
