Cosmos launches at International Blockchain Week

Tweney Media client Cosmos soft-launched its website a couple weeks ago, and today the company scored coverage in the International Business Times for its demo at International Blockchain Week in Shanghai.

In addition to writing and editing the website copy, Tweney Media wrote the script and executive-produced the intro video above. We also led extensive PR outreach, generating the IBT coverage and other media hits for Cosmos.

Congrats to Jae and Ethan for a nice debut.

The standard of firms and startups presenting was extremely high. A major announcement was the first public outing of Cosmos, the “internet of blockchains” released by Tendermint. Tendermint, which is used by Eris Industries, is a free and open source consensus middleware, related to the classic Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (PBFT) algorithm, released in 1999.

Presenting, Jae Kwon, co-founder of Tendermint, said Cosmos is a public network of blockchains, which he called “zones” because the can have their own style of governance, their own economic models and tokens. “They are like economic zones,” he said.

… “We see it as a world wide web for tokens and blockchains, a solution to lots of longstanding problems in the blockchain world.”
