Blockchain interoperability has become quite a buzzword recently - especially after the launch of Cosmos and the potential threat to the Ethereum ecosystem. On the internet, as we know it, it's possible to access and modify various data sets through APIs. With blockchains, however, it's not so simple. The data is siloed by the chain that it exists on and it cannot be easily transferred to another system. Kerman Kohli gives an opportunity to take a deep dive into the topic of interoperability, i.e. ability to transfer data between various blockchains, in his article for Token Economy. He focuses on the technical features of two solutions - Cosmos and Polkadot. He illustrates the article with many pictures of his own authorship, which help explain the intricacies of the topic.
