Cosmos verifies that the node is heavily centralized, and the top nine nodes account for more than half of the voting rights.

Cosmostation data shows that in the Cosmos block height is 1400,194, the top nine verification nodes account for 50.81% of the total voting rights, the top 18 verification nodes have more than 70% voting rights, and there are 158 active verifiers at this height. This shows that Cosmos verification node centralization is getting more and more serious. Under the PoS mechanism, the early stage of the project often has the characteristics of consensus centralization, that is, the network is controlled and monopolized by a few nodes, which in turn violates the original intention of decentralization. The query found that another PoS project IRISnet also exists in this situation, the top 17 verification nodes control more than half of the voting rights.
