Interchain Standards Development
This repository is the canonical location for development and documentation of inter-chain standards utilized by the Cosmos network & interchain ecosystem. Initially it will be used to consolidate design documentation for the inter-blockchain communication protocol (IBC), encoding standards for Cosmos chains, and miscellaneous utilities such as off-chain message signing.
Please see ICS 1 for a description of what a standard entails.
See PROCESS.md for a description of the standardization process.
