Ethermint is a scalable, high-throughput proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain that is highly interoperable with the Ethereum network. The Cosmos software development kit (SDK) is used to build the platform, which runs on top of the Tendermint Core consensus engine. The Ethermint system is intended to assist developers in developing Ethereum-compatible applications in a Tendermint-based environment. The platform uses the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol via the Cosmos SDK to facilitate the exchange of tokenized assets and other data types between the Cosmos and Ethereum ecosystems.
