Cosmos creates a new cross-chain blockchain that allows developers to experiment with different protocols.

Cosmos revealed in its prevalent quarterly report on October 19 that the Sagan blockchain is currently in development. The project sparked the launch of the blockchain in a video message with a quote from famous astronomer Carl Sagan and an image of an interstellar canary.

Canary Images may refer to the blockchain, an experimental “canary network,” a term used by the Polkadot Interoperability Protocol to describe the Kusama Test Network. For Kusama, the blockchain allows developers to build and use a canopy or test the controls, stacking, and other features of Polkadot in a real environment.

Cosmos has grown steadily since the launch of a blockchain communication protocol in March that makes it easy to move crypto assets between compatible blocks, including decentralized finance. According to Mapofzones, 1,285,426 transfers have been made through the Cosmos ecosystem in the last 30 days.

Sagan’s announcement comes as Cosmos is also working on scalable federation technology to allow developers to create Cosmos-based blockchains as federations that can be distributed as groups in inter-block communication protocol areas. The solution, called Optimint, is intended to be an “alternative” to the Tendermint platform on which it was built.
