What is Cosmos (ATOM)?

Cosmos is actually an interconnected ecosystem of independent blockchains through IBC: the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol. At the center of the galaxy is the Cosmos Hub, which serves as the “router” of IBC packets between its fellow Cosmos blockchains. The Cosmos Hub will soon include the Interchain Security feature, which will allow other Cosmos blockchains to utilize the validators staking $ATOM, the native asset of the Cosmos Hub. Like the majority of blockchains in the ecosystem, the Cosmos Hub is secured by the proof of stake consensus algorithm, Tendermint.

Cryptohunt's Opinion

Our take on Cosmos

While many blockchains have worked tirelessly to capture market share by concentrating their focus on supporting the applications built on their respective blockchains, the teams behind Cosmos Hub and the Cosmos ecosystem at large took the opposite approach. By instead focusing on building the tools for others to build their own interoperable blockchains, they have positively set themselves apart with their cross-chain mentality. We have some concerns, like many others, about the tokenomics of $ATOM since its token supply is infinite. That said, we’re excited to see the upcoming improvements introduced in ATOM 2.0. We believe cross-chain crypto is the future and our take is that Cosmos will lead us into that future.

Cosmos is synonymous with interoperability and was one of the first projects to attempt to connect blockchains to create the internet of blockchains. The Cosmos SDK has been used to create some of the most well-known crypto projects. In my opinion, Cosmos is one of the most important crypto projects because the future of crypto is based on many blockchains, making interoperability the only way for crypto to achieve global adoption.
