Cosmos (ATOM) is a cryptocurrency and blockchain project in the crypto world. Cosmos is designed as a platform to connect and enable interaction between different blockchains. The underlying idea behind this project is to facilitate communication and value transfer between blockchain projects.
One of the core features of Cosmos is the “Inter-Blockchain Communication” (IBC) protocol. This protocol enables data and value transfer between different blockchains. In other words, different blockchains on the Cosmos network can communicate with each other and exchange information.
ATOM is the cryptocurrency used in the blockchains on the Cosmos network. This cryptocurrency is used for various operations on the network, such as payment of transaction fees, network security, and other functions. Cosmos is a project aiming for wider adoption and interaction of blockchain technology.
