What is Cosmos Network (ATOM)? The Beginner’s Guide to Cosmos


With the vision of being able to “solve the most complex problems of Blockchain,” Cosmos (ATOM) has received a lot of attention from investors since it was born in 2014. So what is Cosmos? What are Cosmos’ outstanding features? Or how to purchase Cosmos ATOM coins? Let’s find out with 5ROI Global in this article!

1. What is Cosmos (ATOM)?

Cosmos is a decentralized network that allows data exchange between different blockchains, each powered by BFT consensus algorithms such as Tendermint consensus. Different from the blockchains with applications built above such as Solana, Terra, Binance Smart Chain, etc. Cosmos can be seen as “Layer 0” and above it will be a lot of Layer 1.

With a new technological vision, Cosmos was created to overcome the previous situation where blockchains were often isolated. Cosmos’ ultimate goal is to create an “Internet of blockchains,” which can solve all the scalability and interoperability problems in blockchains. Tokens can be moved quickly and securely from one region to another seamlessly. Therefore, Cosmos is considered the solution to one of the most complex problems of Blockchain.

2. Outstanding technologies of the Cosmos project.

Tendermint Core: Using a byzantine fault-tolerant consensus protocol that provides instant finality and security, this core can be used to build public and private blockchains.

Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC): Between blockchains connected by the IBC protocol, leveraging the instant end property of Tendermint consensus allows heterogeneous chains to have the ability to transfer value or data for each other.

Cosmos SDK: This is a tool to accelerate the build process for developers who want to create their own Blockchain for their decentralized applications (Dapps), based on two main principles: Modularity and security-based ability.
