Mentions:#DOT#ATOM

The biggest difference between the two is that Cosmos uses IBC, and of course they use "zones" as opposed to parachains. They certainly can thrive alongside one another, but honestly they have a completely different audience, so while they are competitors in the sense that they're focusing on the interoperability angle, but they aren't really competing for one another's userbase very much, at least from what I can tell. Personally, I chose ATOM and the Cosmos ecosystem over the Dotsama ecosystem. Just a lot more going on there that I believe in, and the teams that are behind the projects are some of the brightest minds in the space. There's a reason a lot of top chains use Tendermint

Mentions:#ATOM

I own neither DOT or ATOM, I am interested in the technology they're working on regarding parachains (and cosmos equivalent). What is the current opinion on the two? Are they competitors whereby only 1 can win? The recent price action of ATOM has been much stronger than DOT, however, DOT has been around longer and survived previous cycles. I'd appreciate anyone's opinions on the 2 and any specifics I should consider when comparing the two projects? Thanks!

I hope we all apply wisdom during the next bull run and take profits along the way. I will continue to stack ETH, BTC, BNB, OCEAN, ATOM and MATIC. I'm also staking ATOM and OCEAN for 18% APY and 100% APY respectively.

100 ATOM should be good, there have been some issues recently, but people are fighting it because ATOM is so expensive now. 50 JUNO is basically bare minimum. 100-200 would be great, because the price has dropped drastically.

I wonder if ATOM will pass up AVAX in price next. It jumped past DOT earlier this year and the pattern is starting to look about the same here.

How long is a piece of string? The APR is the same regardless... Id say 10, 20 , 50... Im chasing down 100 (I have other positions, and pools etc)... Now, 50 would put you deep into airdrop minimums and with a good airdrop... Back in winter 10 ATOM was a minimum, now id say that more is your buddy if youre chasing airdrops.... Worthwhile? Thats too hard to say... The thing is, theres a lot of ways to pull APRs out of projects.... Heres what Im doing/been doing... Im mostly into ATOM, JUNO, EVMOS. I also do some poolng on osmosis... I get staking rewards from my positions and I swap them to USDC on osmosis. When we drop I buy ATOM with all my staking rewards. (right now were in a dip so instead of converting staking rewards, Im accumulating them till price recovers when Ill swap them and wait for next red days)

Mentions:#ATOM#BTC

"Shitcoin Compounders" Coins that you buy once and stake to earn multiple other types of coins. They can easily gain traction with the "passive income" crowd and capitalize on FOMO. Especially since they are all drowning right now. A couple examples are currently being pushed as DAO coins because the skirt current regulations but they also fit well into the proposed regulatory frameworks of the future such as the EU terms that are facing final acceptance. For people wanting direct examples, ATOM staking is a single purchase that gets the user multiple shitcoins which can result in massive "pump and dump" potential for the airdrops. ALGO has projects that operate similarly. Lots of shitcoins means lots of FOMO and linking during the next bull run.

Defi on Cosmos is fast, cheap, & easy. I love the airdrop model too! Incentivized demos are the fastest way to grow a network imo. Holding ATOM long term here

I tested Cosmos Hub and Polkadot, and I have to say, that i'm impressed of the UX of ATOM chains. Osmosis felt very smooth, and the Keplr Wallet worked perfectly. For Polkadot I used Talisman Wallet, it was also fine, and I used DEX on Acala, but it felt not that smooth. I think people underestimate the power of Cosmos. The look and feel was perfect.

Mentions:#ATOM#DEX

TLDR; The main draw for building in Cosmos is a level of flexible modularity that isn’t possible on other smart-contract chains. Perhaps there is a first-mover advantage for the Cosmos Hub, but nothing formally baked into the Cosmos IBC protocol that necessitates the use of ATOM for other appchains. With Cosmos 2.0, all that is set to change. ATOM inflation increases when staking is low, and decreases when staking is high. This will change into a deflationary direction over 36 months.

Mentions:#ATOM

IBC and ICS are technologies that every chain worth a damn are going to be attempting to integrate in their own way moving forward (unless they join the Cosmos ecosystem and implement IBC and ICS themselves). The future is absolutely multi-chain and Cosmos has the most seamless interoperability between its ecosystem chains than any other project. Add in interchain security going online early next year, and you’ve got a recipe for enormous utility in ATOM.

Bullish on ATOM

Mentions:#ATOM

You can't afford to not be into Cosmos. ATOM JUNO SCRT OSMO and enjoy.

Interoperability. I think DOT and QNT are going to smash the bullrun in 2024 for attempting to solve this issue. Another couple I’m confident on is HBAR and ATOM. Both of these networks have not been down 24/7 like SOL lmfao

True - I am looking for alts to accumulate before the next cycle. Currently just spending lots of time reading and hearing other peoples opinions on both sides before deciding. MATIC, LINK, ATOM, ALGO on the list of interest. Any opinions/advice?

Same. I already have a small bag of ATOM but would definitely top it up if it goes sub 10

Mentions:#ATOM

Why bullish on ATOM? I’m just learning about it

Mentions:#ATOM

I've somehow resisted the shills here and still not brought ATOM. Sub $10 I may be tempted

Mentions:#ATOM

BTC, ETH, ALGO, ADA, MATIC and some DOT, LINK and ATOM (I switch between those three because I don't have enough money to buy all of them always.)

ATOM and XRP for me, I’m going all in them along with BTC and ETH.

ATOM becoming a molecule slowly!

Mentions:#ATOM

If you don’t hold ATOM you’re missing out, that’s all I have to say.

Mentions:#ATOM

Cosmos doing great. Invested in some other projects beside ATOM.

tldr; Blockchain network Cosmos plans to roll out USDC natively on its interchain platform in January 2023. The stablecoin rollout will enable dapps to operate more efficiently and facilitate favorable liquidity flow. ATOM’s weighted sentiment metric registered a sharp uptick from 26 September to its highest monthly level on 30 September. At press time, ATOM was trading at $13.0. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*

#Cosmos Con-Arguments Below is an argument written by MrMoustacheMan which won 1st place in the Cosmos Con-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > #Cosmos Con Argument > > - *Disclaimer: ATOM currently makes up ~1-2% of my portfolio. Including Cosmos related projects like OSMO, JUNO, etc. or projects built on Tendermint like BNB, LUNA, CRO, then it's more like 5%.* > > - While I wrote about the benefits of a [hub and spoke model](https://v1.cosmos.network/images/intro/06-architecture.svg) in the [Cosmos Pro thread](https://np.reddit.com/r/CointestOfficial/comments/qk4yl2/coin_inquiries_round_cosmos_proarguments_november/), different development models/architecture have different tradeoffs (e.g., [Cathedral vs. Bazaar](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cathedral_and_the_Bazaar), [empire vs nation states](https://www.finder.com.au\/brave-new-worlds-cosmos-blockchain-and-social-evolution), [different blockchain types](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blockchain#Types), or even [DAGs](https://np.reddit.com/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_archive#wiki_dag)). > > - **TLDR**: The overarching focus of Cosmos is on interoperability - but a priority on connecting everything together doesn't necessarily benefit the development or utility of ATOM itself. It's natural for developers to disagree on their vision for a decentralized, open source project and some may even regard that as a positive. But infighting is bad for optics and there are certain aspects of ATOM's tokenomics that may limit its value within the 'Internet of Blockchains'. > > ##Team entropy > > - In February 2020, fighting within the Cosmos team lead to a [shakeup of talent](https://decrypt.co/19769/zaki-manian-cosmos-number-two-resigns) and a [restructuring of the companies involved in developing the project](https://messari.io/article/amid-multiple-departures-cosmos-core-contributor-tendermint-inc-restructures-the-company). > > - Former Tendermint director [Zaki Manian accused founder Jae Kwon of neglecting Cosmos by instead working on a side project, Virgo](https://decrypt.co/18324/tendermint-director-accuses-cosmos-founder-of-evading-responsibility). > > - Some (including Jae), regarded the 'break up' as a [move towards decentralization](https://gist.github.com/jaekwon/7cb869769aecf9c86bfd1b9e61c488df). > > - Zaki (in a now deleted tweet) [disagreed with the decentralization claim and pointed to delays in development, turnover and under-resourcing of the Cosmos project](https://web.archive.org/web/20200207134418/https://twitter.com/zmanian/status/1224384772677390336). Others [reported a toxic environment for engineers](https://twitter.com/jessysaurusrex/status/1224417773620588545). > > - Amidst this backdrop of 'he said, she said' the fact is that core developers like to work on their own pet projects: > > - I'm not sure if Virgo is still a thing, but [Jae Kwon stepped down to work on a Gno project](https://twitter.com/jaekwon/status/1360867477572493313?s=28). Zaki went on to [work on Iqlusion and Sommelier](https://www.linkedin.com/in/zmanian/) while Sunny Aggarwal [started Osmosis and Sikka](https://www.linkedin.com/in/sunnya97/). > > > > ##Project entropy > > - The [community tends to dismiss devs fighting as FUD](https://np.reddit.com/r/cosmosnetwork/comments/r2zhz0/its_a_fud_hit_piece_and_makes_me_sick/). And one could argue that developers shifting to work on other projects is a 'value add' to the ecosystem rather than a detriment to work on Cosmos. > > - I'm not so sure - and I think a related example is actually the main products these teams worked on, [Cosmos SDK](https://v1.cosmos.network/sdk) and [Tendermint](https://academy.binance.com/en/articles/tendermint-explained). > > - In the Pro thread I highlighted how many popular projects such as BNB, CRO and LUNA have been built using these tools. > > - Many of those coins now [have a higher marketcap than ATOM - but, beyond displaying their total value](https://cosmos-cap.com/) under one umbrella there isn't a 'trickle down effect' whereby growth in CRO impacts the value of ATOM. > > - This is a function of the Cosmos design decision to [retain the sovereignty of each connecting chain](https://juliankoh.medium.com/5-differences-between-cosmos-polkadot-67f09535594b). Unlike Polkadot or ETH, a rising tide in the Cosmos ecosystem *doesn't necessarily* lift all boats: > > - Polkadot parachains use DOT's security. Ethereum tokens use ETH as gas. But projects in the Cosmos ecosystem are not 'locked in' to using ATOM. > > - [Transactions fees on the Cosmos Hub do not necessarily need to be paid in ATOM](https://cryptoseq.medium.com/cosmos-atom-token-and-the-commonly-misunderstood-staking-tokens-part-three-958c295c5b78). > > - In the absence of a [shared security model](https://blog.cosmos.network/interchain-security-is-coming-to-the-cosmos-hub-f144c45fb035), all the [connected zones and hubs today](https://mapofzones.com/?period=720&testnet=false&tableOrderBy=totalIbcTxs&tableOrderSort=desc) continue to use their own native tokens rather than enhancing the value of ATOM. So, to go back to developer projects, [Osmosis can post growing liquidity and transaction volume](https://info.osmosis.zone/) but the DEX usage doesn't directly benefit ATOM. > > - So while the Cosmos Hub has been crucial to promoting interoperability, in the future it might not remain the economic center of an 'Internet of Blockchains' but instead get supplanted by one of its 'children'. > > - Jae Kwon spoke to this point years ago, [indicating his support for competition between hubs rather than locking users into Cosmos](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OAulsLeDI0&t=749s). > > - And the centrality of ATOM seems to be the subtext of recent [dev arguments over 'Cosmos' nomenclature](https://np.reddit.com/r/cosmosnetwork/comments/scye0t/sunnys_constant_attacks_on_the_cosmos_hub/), with [calls to rebrand](https://twitter.com/sunnya97/status/1486031900925784066). > > - Where Cosmos *does* lock in users is with staking: > > - [ATOM uses a high token inflation rate to ensure a high staking participation.
