Informal Systems is excited to announce the v0.1 pre-release of Interchain Security! Interchain Security is a feature which will allow the Cosmos Hub to share security with other blockchains. On a technical level, this means that the Cosmos Hub validator set will gain the ability to validate other blockchains alongside the Cosmos Hub. These blockchains are called “consumer chains”, and will be secured by the Cosmos Hub’s billions of dollars of staked ATOMs.

This pre-release is a milestone that will be extensively audited and tested over the coming months in partnership with a diverse group of Cosmos stakeholders. Once any bugs identified during this phase are fixed, we will release v1 and begin the process of deploying it to the Cosmos Hub. We will also be starting a private testnet in early September with a smaller subset of Cosmos Hub validators as a dry run for the public testnet that will commence upon release of v1. Keeping the private testnet small will allow us to move quickly.
