Cosmos SDK Blockchain Development

Tendermint core give you a ready to go state-machine replication engine a.k.a blockchain. Great foundation, but coding actual state machines on top of it is not so easy. And in fact it is not the job for any core to do this.

Here the Cosmos project comes. The project describes itself as "...a decentralized network of independent parallel blockchains, each powered by BFT consensus algorithms like Tendermint consensus...". They have very active OSS development - more then 40 active repositories on GitHub!

Tendermint Core Blockchain Development

Developing chain applications is pretty hard work, so starting from scratch is not very pleasant. Some frameworks I tried, like Truffle , OpenZeppelin etc. was step in the right direction, but still not very easy - new programming language, a lot of restrictions (integers only, no random etc.).

Founding a real world working OSS project is a very, very good way to start. I researched for a while and this bring me to Cosmos , and most specifically to Cosmos SDK - "...A Framework for Building High Value Public Blockchains...". Great, let's start digging...

Reading the project documentation however I found something even better - Tendermint Core . An amazing project! Working horse for a lot of blockchain related OSS development projects. Let's start from the core!
