Co-Chain Architecture

The Kava Network’s Co-Chains combine the flexibility and speed of Ethereum smart contract development with the interoperability of the Cosmos SDK in a single network, all powered by the ultra-fast Tendermint consensus engine.

Cosmos Co-Chain

A highly-scalable and secure Cosmos SDK blockchain that connects Kava to the 30 chains and $60B+ of the Cosmos ecosystem via the IBC protocol.

Ethereum Co-Chain

An EVM-compatible execution environment that empowers Solidity developers and their dApps to benefit from the scalability and security of the Kava Network.

Tendermint Consensus

With single block finality and unrivalled scalability, Tendermint Consensus enables Kava to support the transaction needs of thousands of protocols and millions of users.

Kava Network Roadmap

View Roadmap

The Kava Network will build on the foundation established by the Kava Platform, incorporating two interoperable chains to connect the most used decentralized ecosystems and empower developers to build a thriving, scalable network of dApps.

Kava Dao

The Kava DAO is a fully decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that governs the Kava Network. Made up of the Kava stakers and validators that help to secure and run the network, the DAO operates on a liquid democracy model and determines how the network functions, what changes should be made to it, and most importantly - how the unique on-chain developer incentives are distributed between the two chains.
As a truly decentralized organization, the Kava DAO has no headquarters, no directive, and no leadership. Those that contribute to the security and stability of the Kava Network are also tasked with providing direction for it and ensuring that its standards are maintained in line with the expectations of the Kava community. This ensures that the Kava Network is always serving the interests of its users and the people that build on it.
