Komodo (KMD) describes itself as 'a secure, scalable, and interoperable blockchain ecosystem that offers the tech and tools to create customizable independent blockchains'. Komodo's multi-chain design reportedly enables projects to build their own blockchain ecosystem via Komodo’s scalable infrastructure. It also claims to supports cross-chain interoperability, which could allow blockchains built with Komodo to connect with external chains via atomic swaps. Additional chains can reportedly be added to form a blockchain cluster to enhance performance without debasing the currency. Komodo is also reportedly secured with the hashing power of the Bitcoin network via a series of cross-chain notarizations that store a blockhash onto the Bitcoin ledger every ten minutes.
