info_outline What is Cosmos



Cosmos Short Description

Developed by the Tendermint team since 2016, Cosmos is a highly forward-looking cross-chain blockchain project that aims to achieve a “blockchain-based internet” based on token transfer and to construct a deeply integrated token economy ecosystem.

Cosmos Hub is the first cross-chain hub of the Cosmos ecosystem, and ATOM is the native staking token of Cosmos Hub, which can be used for spam prevention, staking dividends, and community management voting.

We can not provide any looks into the future for Cosmos yet.

As a public infrastructure, a global community of individuals, software companies, and institutions secure and maintain the operations of The OAN. These critical functions are enabled and incentivized using Aion. The Open Application Network solves the unintended consequences of platform economies. The OAN is an open source public infrastructure for the creation and hosting of Open Apps. Open Apps are programs that put users back in control and are universally accessible across platforms. The OAN is built on open standards and is owned by everyone that uses it.

  • 2.) Nexus

    Nexus is an innovative open source blockchain technology, designed to better the world through advanced peer to peer networks and digital currency. With the world’s first 3D Chain, Nexus solves the current challenges of speed and scalability in the blockchain industry.

  • 3.) Cryptonite

    Cryptonite is the first implementation of the light weight mini-blockchain scheme. Nodes will never again spend days synchronizing with the network and the average user will not have to fear becoming a full node. This is possible because of decentralized balance sheet approach.

remove_red_eye Cosmos Product Review by Coinpaper


Cosmos Product description


The purpose behind Cosmos was a little too demanding for sure. Where other crypto-technologies are trying to solve one problem at a time, Cosmos revealed that it will launch a blockchain-based interoperability platform, which will allow all the different blockchains to interact and work together. It kind of pulls all the blockchains onto one platform, and as per the latest news of February 2020, it looks like they are getting some results out of their works.



Cosmos is a platform that will allow the integration of different blockchains into one system. The product is a customizable, scalable, powerful and interoperable ecosystem of connected blockchains. The developers are working on making the Proof-of-Stake consensus more efficient. ATOM is the native token for the platform, and the delegators and valuators of a transaction will be rewarded with ATOM tokens



The Interchain Foundation is in charge of its development work. The lead project manager is Jae Kwon, serving as the CTO of Cosmos Network.


How things stand for Cosmos


Cosmos was founded with the support of the Interchain Foundation (ICF); a non-commercial foundation based in Switzerland. Cosmos held the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for its ATOM token in 2017. The ICO turned out to be successful, where the team managed to raise $17 million within the first half an hour of the ICO. A total of 168 million tokens were sold, while the team kept apart 50 million of the total supply to use for their financial and strategic goals. Cosmos, with its idea of joining all other blockchains to eliminate the problem of blockchain scalability, gained massive recognition in the year 2019. The project received countless investments, so much so that Cosmos became the 25th largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization. This ranking was revealed by The total market capital that Cosmos has attracted so far stands at about $300 million, with each token trading at about $2.16.



The current activities on Cosmos repositories reveal that the development team is on a working streak. There are a total of 86 active repositories working on different aspects of the Cosmos network. The most active repositories on Github have numerous code commits in the past days. Other than the Cosmos repositories, the project is also expanded in repositories belonging to Tendermint, which is yet another middleware that will allow the interoperability of different blockchains.


Cosmos Pro/Contra

Security ATOM token is based on the Ethereum blockchain, and offers a similar level of security.
Adoption Cosmos has been widely accepted lately, and the community around the project has grown significantly.
Transactions per second Cosmos is practically trying to solve the scalability issues faced by other blockchains. Therefore, once put into its working state, the network must have a faster transaction speed.
Transaction cost ATOM transactions are subject to a transaction cost of a few cents.
Energy consumption The technology does not rely on mining processes to carry out financial transactions and for that reason it can be counted as an energy-efficient technology.
Decentralization The network is based on POS methodology and is decentralized blockchain technology.
Exchange availability ATOM token is available on more than 90 trade exchanges.
Transaction speed There are no official figures available, but tokens that are built upon Ethereum Blockchain cannot exceed its transaction speed yet.
Product availability The mainnet has not gone live yet and is in its development phase currently.
Privacy The technology does not offer complete privacy as ATOM is a pseudo anonymous cryptocurrency which means that transactions can be tracked and balances of individual accounts are available for people to see.

Cosmos Foresight


Cosmos is currently enjoying a good share of its positive developments. The token, ATOM, is also performing well on the market charts. According to analysts, ATOM may spike up to $8-$9 by the end of the year 2022.



There are a number of projects that have been announced by Cosmos on its roadmap for 2020. Among the most anticipated projects are the development of a consensus algorithm, middlewares for the mainnet, and a wallet to store ATOM tokens.



Cosmos has a lot of potentials as the project does not seem like a scam and has a trusted team working selflessly towards the development of the project. The confidence people have in the project can be deduced by its growth in the year 2019.


Cosmos Business Case


Several other cryptocurrencies are working to develop a platform for blockchain interoperability. However, none of them have managed to deliver as much as Cosmos. Among the similar substitute projects of Cosmos are ARK, ICON, AION, and Wanchain.



Cosmos is currently focusing on developing workable algorithms for their network. Along with that, the team has announced a number of partnerships that will enable the technology to reach a wider range of users. It is listed on more than 90 crypto trade exchanges, including Changelly and Binance. It has announced some major memorandum of understandings with different blockchain-based cryptocurrencies like OmiseGO and ThetaToken. There are a large number of crypto-development organizations and firms working with Cosmos. Oracle Internal Corporation, DATA chain, IRIS, and Loom Network are just a few to mention.



The community around the Cosmos project has grown exponentially. At first, the project seemed too ambitious to be actualized. However, the team has delivered steadily and has some more exciting developments on its roadmap. There is a good representation for Cosmos in terms of social platform channels, and all are being run by the community members and do not represent the official Cosmos team. Medium, Twitter, Reddit, and Youtube show good metrics confirming the involvement of community members.



Another notable lead developer on the team is Ethan Buchman.
