Me personally, I’m buying XLM, ROSE, JUNO and ATOM. I also like XMR and you can never own enough BTC.

Good. Let the governments know that cryptocurrency and people’s privacy is like Hydra; cut off one head and two shall grow. There’s also Juicer on JUNO being developed that I have high hopes for too.

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.

Mentions:#ATOM#JUNO

Is 100 ATOM 100 OSMO and 50 JUNO a decent amount to stake for airdrops?

Maybe come next bull people will bet on Juno and buy JUNO instead of JCOIN!

Mentions:#JUNO

Not the JUNO we expected.

Mentions:#JUNO

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)

Actually I tested also junoswap on JUNO and it felt also way better than acalaswap. I there a L1 DEX on Polkadot to test?

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

I like really cool NFTs, and I got some for myself from the Loop NFT marketplace, which I believe is the first NFT marketplace on JUNO that focuses on utility NFTs. It allows me to exchange one asset for another using smart contracts and also provides liquidity in exchange for LP tokens that pay out rewards. I don't believe NFTs are finished, but we should focus on those that have high utility.

I like the option A best. Since the bear run, I have been able to increase my crypto holding through DCA. Staking has also been a part of my strategy too. I have ATOM, JUNO, EVMOS staked and just started staking OCEAN on Monday. They all offer good APY with EVMOS and OCEAN offering the highest.

Oh, damn... you're gonna love it! There's multiple platforms and tools at your disposal... check out JUNO. GNOland, SCRT (I think)...

Mentions:#JUNO#SCRT

Focused on XLM lately but still buying ROSE, ATOm and JUNO too.

ATOM, JUNO, NGM, EVMOS, SCRT all staked and accumulating. Should I add CMDX to the mix? Clearly can't get enough of the cosmos ecosystem.

Yea, I have a couple bags full... got a bit more ATOM and JUNO to fill up on but then I'm with you, cash gang till confirmed uptrend

Mentions:#ATOM#JUNO

I have a mix of everything. I have large caps such as BTC, ETH, BNB, ATOM and MATIC. And a mix of mid and low caps such as ZIL, FET, OCEAN, JUNO, etc.

Create a keplr wallet (write down your key and save that somewhere)... send coins to your wallet... stake them from there Then spend the next couple weeks seeing all the other cool shit u can do in the cosmos... maybe u see some other projects u like.. JUNO for example is worthy a gander. KUJI is very interesting to me...

Oh, I gotta tasty bag of JUNO... Im staking a bunch of projects there atm.

Don't sleep on JUNO.

ATOM, JUNO, EVMOS, SCRT, OSMO... ATOM and JUNO are top builds. EVMOS, SCRT in follow up with a sprinkle of OSMO for airdrops... Im playing around with some LPs, little farming... Building a cash position to get into GNO whenever that drops... Im getting a little bag that I know of from the airdrop, but Ill likley add to that... Same with Jackyl when that comes out... But thats all secondary to my ATOM position.

I was looking at doing it on JUNO... I guess they have some tools there which, i guess, makes it easy and im most familiar with the cosmos ecosystem.

Mentions:#JUNO

I have my ATOM staked and I love it too. I also have BUSD, JUNO, NGM, EVMOS, OSMO, CMDX and STARS staked. I'm wondering if you're staking anything else apart from ATOM.

The best coins to buy are the least valued coins with potential to pump in the next bull cycle. I would vote for JUNO, DIA, NGM and FET right now. I believe they have huge potential roi.

I'm fan of keplr with OSMO, JUNO and even chihuahua

Mentions:#OSMO#JUNO

Depends on what and where you're staking. Staking ATOM, JUNO, and EVMOS are definitely worth it for me.

I miss the days of juicy 3 digit apy’s on JUNO. Are you in any LP pools or just single staking on Keplr?

Mentions:#JUNO

<for juicy rewards And also for the many airdrops that you'll inevitably be eligible for. My OSMO, JUNO, NETA, EVMOS, CMDX stacks (and the dozens of others) will forever be thankful to me for staking ATOM

ATOM and some smaller projects over there... JUNO, EVMOS, KUJI. OSMO, SCRT... TBF, its a worthy dyor

ATOM OSMO JUNO med then high n high risk

Understand Tendermint IBC, download Keplr and use it. It is a great ecosystem with some brilliant devs constantly building on it. The ATOM token will also likely become deflationary following a tokenomics upgrade in the coming weeks/months. Plus interchain security means its valset will be used to secure other chains, so stakers of ATOM will receive constant airdrops of other tokens leveraging the security of ATOM. I would also look at JUNO and EVMOS if you want to gain exposure to the Cosmos ecosystem. HUAHUA too: it seems like a meme coin but it has massive utility since it uses Tendermint consensus (same as Cosmos), is IBC enabled, fast & cheap, has a strong valset, active governance and a super low market cap, smart contracts were also just enabled and the first dapps are being deployed while inflation is rapidly reducing A large chunk of supply is also being burnt every day and a long-term fee burn mechanism is being implement. Remember to stake any cosmos coins you buy, you will gain access to lots of airdrops (provided you meet minimum staking requirements) and by compounding frequently, you will keep building your stacks. UMEE is also a great IBC chain which is very young and yet to enable its core feature. Get in early. Enjoy!

They will continue but the more people who enter ATOM staking, the less valuable ATOM stake drops could be. That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth getting in! Get in, stale some ATOM, OSMO, JUNO, EVMOS and STARS. Those are Cosmos bluechips at this point. And then get some money into different LP positions around the Cosmos too. This is probably the most for sure way to get a few airdrops. Don’t live in the Cosmos exclusively for airdrops, they aren’t all exciting, but the fluid movement of Crypto and data between fully interoperable and sovereign blockchains is very exciting. It’s art

Compared to JUNO and OSMO arent they more decentralized than ATOM which has some major CEX stakers?

I did the same last year. Got burned by having way too much staked in JUNO for the crash lol... but made a **stupid** amount in the first week of Fortis. The UI/wallet/IBC bridging/Staking/interacting with contracts experience is second to none. Still love cosmos, building my portfolio back up to its former glory.

Mentions:#JUNO

ATOM, JUNO, EVMOS... Does that mean we have to fight now?

ATOM, JUNO, OSMO the holy trinity

Staking is the best, especially if you're staking ATOM, JUNO, and EVMOS. Bounties are another way, you can check FLUID's ongoing bounty to start earning FLD tokens for the TGE, Defi solution, and liquidity aggregator launch. An upcoming low market cap gem.

50%ETH, 40% ATOM, 10% other Cosmos Altcoins (mostly JUNO). Everything is staked and compounding until next bull run. I swapped every Altcoin for ATOM after trying out The Cosmos ecosystem. It’s so damn user friendly. Not financial advice.

You need to onload with ATOM and then can swap for whatever you want that's available using the DEX. There's tons of IBC cosmos chains like CRO/Injective/JUNO etc and a bunch of bridged ETH assets so far.

Same here, discovering Cosmos was a turning point for me. I have ATOM, JUNO, NGM, EVMOS, OSMO, CMDX and many other Cosmos based projects staked. I'm also in Osmosis LP pools and you said, the rewards are good.

Nothing scammy about them. ATOM, NGM and JUNO have been around for a long time and the APYs have remained considerably stable. EVMOS is the only one that's unstable.

You know the dump is coming now that this is on the front. People has time to unstake and "ATOM 2.0" will act a great buy the rumor sell the news However very unlikely to see ATOM at 5-7$ again anytime soon At single digits I am reloading. IBC gang is just too good. ATOM and JUNO are gonna be one of the places to be

Mentions:#JUNO

Current staking rewards are 18.92% per year for staked ATOM in keplr. Staked ATOM qualifies you for airdrops too. When a new project is built on the network, they usually airdrop a small portion of that new project's coins to everyone staking ATOM to introduce it to the community. Some projects are worth just a few cents per coin but some become very successful like JUNO, OSMO, EVMOS. The great part is you can get airdrops for staking airdrops. JUNO, OSMO, EVMOS, SCRT, STARS have all dramatically increased the amount of new airdrops you receive. Projects will often take the snapshot months before announcing it, which incentivizes people to keep their coins staked and interact more with the entire Cosmos ecosystem.

Use Keplr wallet or Cosmostation for ATOM staking, and just about every coin on the cosmos ecosystem. Most of the APRs are not ridiculously high too, and not low either; ATOM is around 18%, SCRT 22%, NGM 25%, OSMO 23%, JUNO 82% with EVMOS still over 100% for now. Some of them like NGM, has buyback boosting the APR and not just inflation. Go ahead DYOR

I think not being mentioned much is also a reason for the strong performance. Less paperhands to dump every time. Cosmos community generally seem to be quite good at hodling. Got SCRT, NGM, JUNO and EVMOS alongside ATOM staked and cooking.

Cosmos Network baby - like ATOM, OSMO, JUNO, EVMOS. Stake some, LP some. Buy an NFT or two on STARS, do some liquid staking stuff. Save some for trading. Mint some USK and buy some other stuff with that. Yeah that's what I'd do.

For me, I'm staking ATOM, EVMOS, JUNO, and NGM as well as providing liquidity with EEUR on Osmosis DEX to enjoy incentives. Additionally, by staking these tokens, I earn airdrops. On your inquiry regarding ATOM, you can earn 18% APY staking it and profiting from airdrops, and it is sustainable.

Cosmos Network - ATOM, OSMO, JUNO, EVMOS, STARS, HUAHUA and others.

You haven't missed the boat yet considering that ATOM's ath was $44 and it's currently trading at $15. I've been in Cosmos long enough and even expanded into other Cosmos projects, namely JUNO, NGM, EVMOS and OSMO. I would say ATOM is still undervalued compared to other top blockchain tokens.

I'm staking ATOM as well. I'm also staking EVMOS 255% APY, NGM 25% APY, JUNO 62% and BUSD 10% APY.

How come no one ever mentions Cosmos blockchain? In my opinion, Cosmos (ATOM) is one of the most prospective layer 0 blockchain out there and it has lots of exciting projects to explore, namely EVMOS, JUNO, OSMO, NGM, SCRT, and CMDX.

As far as I read, they are connected to both LUNA and JUNO (airdrop gaming/scam ).

Mentions:#LUNA#JUNO

You haven't missed the boat yet. Time to hop in and take a ride. There are HUGE news coming to ATOM like liquid staking and interchain security for example. You can protect a new project by staking the ATOM token and you will recieve the rewards from all chains it's securing at once. This will skyrocket the current APR/APY numbers. Example: stake 1 ATOM Recieve staking rewards from: ATOM, OSMO, JUNO ... and so on. You don't need thousands or even millions in liquidity to bootstrap a new project anymore because ATOM is already providing the largest PoS network with a 4.6b market cap. While these tokens are "liquid staked", you will still have the opportunity to trade/transfer or use DeFi without needing to wait the 21 days unbond time. So you can stake + LP at the same time for example to maximise your passive income and generate even more yield than before. This also should result in having more available liquidity. Also tokenomics might get updated soon. Big news/upgrades in the making Announcements coming by the end of this month @Cosmoverse in Medellin, Colombia.

What makes the cosmos ecosystem special is the easy ability for any well organized project to launch their own blockchain, allowing infinite horizontal scalability. Compared to ETH with most transactions on one blockchain, or possibly later 2s—cosmos simply allows for way more potential TPS with extremely low fees for running smart contract dapps. The different blockchains are then interconnected using the IBC to move and trade on DEXs like Osmosis. The ecosystem is structured in a way that new projects airdrop their new tokens in a decentralized manner, with many projects being almost entirely airdropped to ATOM/OSMO/JUNO stalkers. But airdrops can be hit or miss, with some dropping in value rapidly. New projects are working on ways to airdrop the tokens so the price action is better, like partially releasing the airdrop right away and vesting the other portion until after their product is launched. The ecosystem isn’t perfect. Treat each project with skepticism until they can prove they can deliver a product people use. Most the projects are still pretty early in development, so most price action is speculative based on what the projects might deliver in the future. Either way, I’ve been a fan of ATOM OSMO JUNO STARS for some time.

Why focus on only ATOM? There are a lot of L1s in the Cosmos ecosystem. OSOMO, JUNO, SCRT, EVMOS, to name just a few. And there are some awesome liquidity pools in the ecosystem, too.

A lot of things are coming up, ATOM v2, good airdrops and probably a lot more projects flooding to JUNO from terra as they both are CosmWasm, future is bright

Mentions:#JUNO

The way ATOM is popping off I'm scared to go into any LPs atm. Just have some ATOM, JUNO, and OSMO staked away in Keplr.

Check r/cosmosairdrops for help but I’ll try to do my best to answer It’s automatic, you have to stake, preferably on Keplr, the official wallet. Just don’t delegate to a delegator with 0% or 100% commission. The more you have the bigger the airdrop. However every airdrop is different. Some want a minimum of some token staked to be eligible like 50 ATOM. Some ask you to have multiple token like ATOM and OSMO and JUNO, some will be proportional like if you have ATOM and OSMO but no JUNO then you only get 60% of the airdrop etc etc. When I say it’s automatic you do have to claim your airdrop when it arrives, that’s why it’s good to be in a cosmos subreddit to have the info. Quality wise it varies but people that where in early got JUNO and EVMOS for example. EVMOS is close to be a top 50 MC right now, and the APR was above 400% when it was released I think so some people have almost doubled their bag already now, without counting for price appreciation. So who knows, maybe we’ll see more top 100 in the ecosystem in the future. I’m a small fish and I’m focused on atom so I don’t get many airdrops to be honest. If I had a 2000$ budget to put straight in crypto I’d probably put a good amount in the ecosystem to pass the staking threshold on the main coins though.

I do... I stake my ATOM, JUNO, SCRT etc on Keplr. I withdrew my EVMOS off of OSMO and it went to the evmos site, Im staked in there... But thats a Metamask place, Id like to keep my coins together and not scattered around a bunch of wallets.

everyone always asks that like its some kind of foolproof defense for their favorite altcoins. you can go look at any chart over almost any time period. JUNO and OSMO have been absolutely destroyed compared to most other mainstream altcoins in this bear market. ATOM is fine and performed just about as well as anything else, maybe better even but god almighty JUNO and OSMO have just been absolute shit.

All depends on the airdops. The most rewarding one I've gotten, all you had to have staked was \~$5 worth of JUNO at the time of the snapshot, and that yielded my $11k lol. But obviously every airdrop is different, and most are worthless. It's easiest to check out the requirements for drops that are ongoing currently to give yourself an idea of how much money you need to invest

Mentions:#JUNO

I'm currently accumulating JUNO, OSMO, and ATOM. Besides the EVMOS and GRAV I've been contemplating picking up, I've considered getting some SCRT, but have heard mixed things about it. Same with STARS. I've thought about it, but am not sold.

My primary holdings are ATOM, JUNO, EVMOS... I have a little sprinkling of OSMO, SCRT and AKT... Im LPing a bit on OSMO too (its handy to have a faucet that gives me daily gas for when I hit max delegate and need to claim rewards or something later) Im not 100% sold on holding big bags of OSMO. But eligibility for airdrops is important to me too... Im excited for some newer projects coming on soon, JCKL and GNO. Some say Starz but IDGAF about NFTs really... Theres all this liquid staking stuff happening, IDK how much ill f-around with that yet... All of this, youve got time. No need to FOMO...

Thanks, fellow Cosmonaut. There's so many projects it's hard not to have a little FOMO even in winter. What are your favorite projects on the IBC? I'm mainly in ATOM, JUNO, and OSMO, but I feel like there are a couple of gems in there besides the ones I hold bags of already.

Think you might be right. I think I need a Cosmostation wallet for EVMOS. So far just holding ATOM, JUNO, and OSMO in Keplr.

If you are going to gamble with alts I would def choose another one. XLM is going nowhere, no matter what people says in here. Check the historic, it's a bagholder coin. Zero hype. People do not care about utility without hype(that's the harsh truth) Cardano the same... too high on MCAP to do anything, but still. I am biased as fuck but I would sell and wait for a dip on ATOM and JUNO. They are much better projects and you will always get airdrops if you stake. Otherwise just buy BTC to avoid the bleed and next bull run move it into some promising alt Promising alt = something people hate in here without the name "doge" ,"inu" or "safe" in here and coins that are not heavily shilled on the daily

Idk how leverage works into it... TBF, I'm not staking ETH. I am staking ATOM, JUNO, EVMOS and a few others... that's how it works over in the cosmos, I cant imagine it's any different elsewhere Staking secures the chain... leverage and trading are unrelated to staking (until u start fucking with derivatives)

> JUNO build your own blockchain project Like this - what is being built that isn't just defi stuff or nfts? I just don't see any projects using the chain for real world applications. >JCKL decentralized cloud storage Decentralized cloud storage on chain? How is it using the blockchain?

They do everything every other blockchain does... which project in particular? JCKL decentralized cloud storage. EVMOS decentralized EVM. ATOM decentralized interchain security. JUNO build your own blockchain project... OSMO simple, user-friendly crazy liquid DEX. It's not a winner takes all future... IBC is 1 of many concepts that will get legs. ICP... well, not my personal cup of tea. That's cool. I like my picks, they're working for me...

ATOM is the GOAT of IBC. People are bullish on it because its a safe way to connect chains. (especially during all these bridge hacks) Also constant airdrops for staking ATOM, OSMO and JUNO and some other coins.

I get that, it does make sense... Its why I dont have a lot in OSMO, SCRT, I have zero Starz... I see it as a Low, Medium, High Risk positions... ATOM is my lowest, EVMOS riskiest but rewardiest. JUNO, sits midtown... There is a lot happening over on JUNO fwiw... It wouldnt take much to get a couple powerhouses that came from the junoverse, which will pull JUNO with them... Its why I can make a good case for JUNO returning to ATHs... If so thats an easy 9x from here

The full airdrop Special. ATOM, OSMO, JUNO, EVMOS some SCRT and some STARS and 1 NETA

Tough call, depends on what youre doing I suppose... I like JUNO as a project, i can see them hitting ATHs again. That and the staking APR is great (will be after the thirdening too). Same with EVMOS... Those are my primary holdings... I do have a sprinkle of SCRT, OSMO too. I dont have the same faith in them as the others, so my position is smaller. Its enough to keep eligibility for airdrops, which not my top priority, is still a worthy reason... For the most part I compound rewards into ATOM... Its my blue chip, lets see if im right

Yeah, I know that JUNO, EVMOS, SCRT, OSMO, STARS, are solid, but focusing on ATOM makes sense too. I’d rather do that than having a portfolio spread too thin

Back in March I had like ~$5k in a bunch of liquidity pools on Osmosis that were bonded for 14 days. I don't remember exactly what spooked me but I unbonded from most of my pools and cashed out ~$4k of UST on Osmosis, just before the whole market took a huge shit. I kept the UST on Osmosis so I could use it to DCA into ATOM/JUNO/Whatever, but luckily I was paying attention to this subreddit and people were warning about the depegging, saying it was gonna go into a death spiral. I swapped it for ATOM when it was like $0.94 , sent it to my coinbase account, and sold it for USDC that I used to DCA into bitcoin and fund my coinbase debit card. Unfortunately one of the liquidity pools I *didn't* unbond was LUNA/UST, but it gave me some entertainment watching it evaporate to nothing in a few days. It was fascinating watching the ratios of those two in a liquidity pool as the whole thing happened, LUNA went crazy minting more to keep the peg but the peg kept falling.

Staking is a lot safer than liquidity mining, you are always at exposed to impermanent loss in LPs. This why I have been focused on increasing my staked ATOM, NGM, JUNO and EVMOS during this bear market.

EVMOS and JUNO seem unphased

All bullshit aside: It's fucking good knowing you're getting paid every day... I've got a small portfolio that gets me $7/day... it's consistent and profitable... These APRs won't be forever. But the gettins good right now... ATOM is gonna hang out in the 18% range. JUNO will be halfing to 40% soon and EVMOS is just doing its own thing but slings +100% APR... I compound those rewards so as the APR dips my bigger bag makes up the difference... prices are pretty low on those coins too right now.
