Hi everyone,

On today’s guide, we will explain to you how you can delegate your ATOM using your Ledger and Lunie.io web wallet.

It’s going to be a very easy tutorial on how to store and delegate your ATOM using a Ledger Nano S.

Configure Your Nano S

First, if you haven’t done it yet, you need to open the Ledger.com website and download the Ledger Live app.

Once you have downloaded the app and connected your device to your computer, you will need to install Cosmos on the Ledger.

To do that, as Cosmos is not on the App Catalog by default…

We are excited to be participating on @solana #TourdeSOL!

We will take this opportunity to keep optimizing our performance!

A Network of many Distributed Ledgers

March came with an event that many expected and few acknowledged by importance. The Cosmos Hub is the first public BFT blockchain powered by proof-of-stake, and the first BFT system deployed at scale in almost 40 years of Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) research history. Cosmos proudly uses Tendermint, a software designed back in 2014 by Jae Kwon and later Ethan Buchman.

Cosmos is a network of many independent blockchains, called zones. The zones are powered by Tendermint, which provides a high-performance, consistent, secure PBFT-like consensus engine. Other said, the ecosystem scales and allows blockchains to interoperate with each other. …

What to expect for Proof of Stake blockchains in 2020

Upcoming launches

A lot of people have already chimed in with their crypto recap for 2019 or prediction for 2020. I wanted to provide some commentary on one theme that most crypto funds and investors are keeping an eye on this year. Will 2020 be the year of Proof of Stake blockchain launches? How will these projects fare?

The following table shows a select number of projects that are planning to either transition to Proof of Stake or launch their mainnets. …

We are very excited for the Cosmos launch and below is a basic guide for using command-line tool to delegate your atoms .

1. Install gaiacli

There is no audited UI wallet at the moment for easy delegation, so gaiacli is the most secure way for delegation.

To start delegating atoms, you need to install gaiacli , the command-line interface (CLI) used to connect to a gaiad full-node and interface with the Cosmos Hub.

You will need to compile the CLI from the source code using the instructions below.


2. Restore Fundraiser Account

To restore your fundraiser account, you will need the following three values:


What is Cosmos?

Cosmos is an ambitious project dubbed “the internet of blockchains” as it is designed to connect all the different blockchains. I won’t go into the technical details, but its security and incentive model is a new implementation of POS (Proof of Stake). Except, this implementation is a bit more aggressive than others with slashing (loss of proof of stake due to poor node performance).

Terminology: Cosmos Hub

The Cosmos Hub is the first blockchain of the Cosmos Network. The hub will connect to many other blockchains, effectively functioning as a light client of those chains. …
