Cosmos (ATOM) blew up 10.74 percent overnight to establish a new price of $39.58, according to CoinMarketCap. It surpassed $40 yesterday, reaching $40.76. Despite today’s minor decline, Cosmos’ price was still ten dollars more than seven days ago, and twenty dollars higher than this time last month.
Its creators call it an “internet of blockchains.” It’s an interoperability network that allows various blockchains to connect, exchange data, and interact with one another.
In short, Cosmos claims to address some of the “hardest problems” in the blockchain sector. It seeks to provide an alternative to “slow, costly, unscalable, and ecologically harmful” proof-of-work protocols like Bitcoin by connecting blockchains. On August 18, Cosmos rose 25% from $15 to $20 after the introduction of Emeris, a cross-chain DeFi interface.
It also launched a bridge to Ethereum at the end of August. The inter-blockchain communication protocol (IBC) allowed trade across the Cosmos and Ethereum networks for the first time, along with the integration of Sifchain.
Cosmos Might Soon Over Take FTX Token
Cosmos is “Blockchain 3.0” — thus, as previously said, ease of usage is a significant objective. To this aim, the Cosmos SDK emphasizes modularity. This enables a network to be created quickly using existing code. Long term, it is anticipated that sophisticated applications would be simple to build.
Cosmos now has the twenty-first largest market value, but at this pace, it would only take $0.8 billion to flip FTX Token and make a bold entry into the top twenty.
Some in the crypto sector, much worried about the amount of fragmentation in blockchain networks. There are hundreds, yet few can converse. Cosmos wants to change this by making it feasible.
