As of today, Cosmos (ATOM) is now live for trading on the Voyager app. With the addition of ATOM, Voyager offers access to 25 crypto assets with USD.
Cosmos is an ecosystem of independent parallel blockchains. The goal of the project is to solve today's biggest blockchain challenges like scalability, usability, and interoperability.
Cosmos addresses these issues with a suite of open-sourced tools:
Tendermint BFT is a byzantine fault-tolerant consensus engine that powers Cosmos Proof-of-Stake.
Cosmos SDK is a modular framework for building interoperable, application-specific blockchains.
Interblockchain Communication (IBC) is a TCP/IP-like messaging protocol for blockchains.
With the Cosmos SDK, businesses can build sovereign blockchains that can scale and communicate with other blockchains in the network. From games to decentralized applications, Cosmos claims to be the most used platform for creating blockchains worldwide.
The Interchain Foundation, a Swiss non-profit foundation, was formed in 2017 to support the development of Cosmos and the ecosystem that contributes to the network. Tendermint, a software development company, is also contracted by the Interchain Foundation to contribute to the growth of Cosmos.
The Cosmos initial coin offering (ICO) was held in April 2017 and raised more than $17 million. The Cosmos Hub was launched in March 2019 and according to the company, it's the first public BFT blockchain powered by proof-of-stake, and the first BFT system deployed at scale in almost 40 years of Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) research history.
