What is Cosmos?
Cryptocurrencies, for all their benefits, are still plagued with setbacks, one of which is interoperability. Transferring data between multiple blockchains can’t be quite difficult and this is what Cosmos aims to solve. Cosmos was built in 2014 by two developer friends, Jae Kwon and Ethan Buchman, and it became available to the public in 2019.
Instead of using lockups and wrapped tokens to transfer assets and data, Cosmos allows actual communication by allowing developers to build dedicated blockchains and connect its engine and an inter-blockchain communication (IBC) protocol. The platform also allows developers to use and customize already built blockchains for their use cases. The Cosmos protocol is doing a great job fostering adoption as it already has over 250 projects listed, including popular ones like YouHodler, Binance Smart Chain, and Crypto.com.
What is ATOM?
As with any blockchain project, Cosmos uses a utility coin for transaction payments– ATOM. The token has a market capitalization of $4.7 billion and a circulating supply of 226 million. The maximum supply is unknown, but 284 million tokens have already been minted into circulation.
Cosmos is highly revered among crypto natives because it reduces blockchain fragmentation and increases interoperability in a bid to improve cryptocurrency adoption.
Should you buy Cosmos (ATOM)?
While Cosmos is a good project worth buying, it is crucial to consider their competitors, among which are PolkaDot and Avalanche. The overall success of Cosmos would hinge on its ability to bring more novel ideas to improve interoperability. ATOM is available on major cryptocurrency exchanges including YouHodler Coinbase, Binance, Huobi Global, and Crypto.com.
