ABOUT Tendermint | @tendermint_team
The Tendermint open-source project began in 2014 originating from the idea that a distributed consensus mechanism can create a reliable system from unreliable, or unverified parts. The project originally started to address the speed, scalability, and environmental issues associated with Bitcoin. The Tendermint team tackled these cryptocurrency problems using Byzantine Fault Tolerance based “Proof of Stake” to gain consensus and securely maintain the validation of blockchains. A blockchain is formed by a community, or validators, who have the most “stake” in the game. A validators investment and reputation, their stake, are a surety to the validity and security of a blockchain. Tendermint was commissioned by the Interchain Foundation to develop the Cosmos Network, to address the Cambrian explosion of blockchain applications.
