Poloniex shared its excitement on welcoming Cosmos. In the blog, Poloniex shed light on how Cosmos can be a platform which can enable an open interconnection between various blockchains. It will become possible through a ‘consensus engine called- Tendermint Core,’ which can be an answer to issues related to operations between the blockchains and the problems related to scale. As a result, one can expect a greater acceptance of the blockchain applications.
Atoms’ transferring and trading-
As the Cosmos will launch the Atoms, the users will not be able to start to trade or transfer the native tokens immediately. At the beginning stage, the users can only preview the Atoms on Poloniex. The transferring and the trading of the native tokens will only start when the Cosmos network votes to enable it.
Upon the initiation of the transferring and trading, then the users can trade in the Bitcoin BTC markets and stablecoin markets such as USDC markets. For those who have not yet participated in the initial coin offering, yet wish to trade Cosmos Atoms, can take the route of creating an account and fund it on their own.
How to preview and redeem the ICO balance?
In the blog, the Poloniex has given clear instructions on how to preview and redeem the Atoms balance on Poloniex. There are a separate set of instructions from ICO participants and different instructions for those ICO participants who want to delegate their Atoms balance to “validator.”
The instructions hover around topics such as ‘deposit and withdrawal screen,’ ensuring of the safe URL being used, and the correct way to logging into the Poloniex accounts. Detailed instructions are also given on properly using the ‘seed phrase’ and the safety measures that one should keep in mind while handling them on their personal computers.
Redeeming Cosmos Atoms-
