What blockchain Akash is based on?

It is hard to understand on what blockchain Akash is based.


I believe that it is its own, independent blockchain project built using the Cosmos SDK. It then uses Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) to communicate with other projects. It’s not like Ethereum or Juno, where you have CW20/ERC20 projects built on the Ethereum blockchain and beholden to all its rules and limitations.

Hopefully if I made any mistakes, someone will swing by soon to set us right. The Akash Discord is good at fielding technical questions like this.
