Interchain Info: The Central Hub for the Cosmos Ecosystem
Interchain Info (ICI) is a comprehensive platform designed to be the principal access point to the interconnected Web3 universe. It aims to facilitate both users and developers in discovering, understanding, and engaging with various Web3 tools and projects within the Cosmos Ecosystem, a network of independent blockchains interconnected via the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol.
The Index is a comprehensive repository for all Web3-related entities, including everything from blockchain networks to decentralized applications (dApps), validators, and essential blockchain infrastructure components. It is akin to Wikipedia, where everyone is encouraged to contribute and update content at any time.
The Resource Hub is a comprehensive repository tailored for multichain explorers. It aggregates and organizes content from across the web, including articles, videos, and soon, audio formats. It’s designed to equip both newcomers and seasoned veterans with the knowledge and tools they need to navigate the Cosmos Ecosystem.
The Dashboard is where ICI shines. It empowers users to create a personalized Interchain dashboard, integrating widgetized versions of their favorite protocols and tools, called “Modules.” It presents a seamless interface that integrates all Cosmos chains, allowing users to interact with each chain without switching platforms.
ICI offers a variety of premium services, including verified status, category or ecosystem feature, featured search results, in-list ad slots, banner ads, and resource spotlight. These services provide deeper insights and functionality for those looking to engage more extensively with the Cosmos Ecosystem.
At Spark IBC, the team behind ICI, they have chosen to reject all investment proposals, upholding their commitment to impartiality. They are entirely funded through grants, community pool funds, and public revenue channels, ensuring their dedication remains towards the community.
In its upcoming full launch, ICI promises a full refresh from the beta version, offering improved user interface, functionality, user experience, and enriched content. In the near future, it will also introduce a new feature, the Dashboard, which will provide users with a personalized command center for all their Cosmos Ecosystem interactions. Users holding a certain amount of $SPARK points will be granted early Beta access to this feature.
For more comprehensive details, users are encouraged to refer to the ICI documentation available on GitBooks, which offers in-depth information and guides on using Interchain Info and its various services.
