Cosmos will roll out a new feature called "interchain security". This feature allows certain application blockchains to secure themselves with Cosmos Hub. According to Cosmos participants, the interchain security will be launched between August and September.

The Cosmos SDK allows developers to create new application-specific blockchains, if they can manage their own validators. But building a set of validators from scratch takes a lot of time and resources. According to the developers, the feature to ensure interchain security is needed here.

The new feature will allow new blockchains in the Cosmos ecosystem to rely on Cosmos Hub security validators. It also means these blockchains will send fees to those validators, providing further rewards to ATOM stakers.
