So what is that Cosmos thing actually doing? Or are the wanting to acomplish with their coin? I'm quite interested in other PoS coins but I think Tezos has the best start for now. A lot of money is put to work and development is ahead of its competitors.
I'm not sure what all the excitement is about. Inter blockchain communication is already possible with atomic swaps. Scalability issues are already being solved with Lightning, Velos, MW and others. Maybe if we had thousands of blockchains that needed to communicate this could be useful but I suspect that we'll have less than a dozen after mainstream adoption. The Cosmos layer on top of another blockchain seems to complicate things more than simplify as promised. The 100 validator private club seems like a terrible idea.
I'm having a bit of FOMO because some prominent community members are involved. Is it justified? Please explain!
We had all that buzz around interoperability last year when everyone shilled ICON. Tendermint is interesting tech, but I don't believe in the interchain communication thing. Cosmos want to be the bright star that all other blockchains circulate around in a happy crypto world. But that's not gonna happen. We gonna see a few monster killer blockchains eat up the others and become dominant players.
