Seoul Gelato and the Hyperbolic Time Chamber of Cosmos

Kwun on Big Dipper and Gaia-9002

This was 4pm Nov 30 2018, Seoul time. After fixing Big Dipper for the late live show that night, Kwun and me (Terence) of Forbole, secretly walked out of Le Méridien Seoul, the base of BUIDL Seoul for another mission — searching for gelato.

But we are spotted by Kafka of Lunamint, one of the most active validators of Cosmos, a sponsor of BUIDL Seoul and a guardian angel for Cosmonauts.

We disguised him successfully. Ice cream is NOT gelato. We arrived at our target gelato shop and spent an hour there.

And this has made all the difference — for that the Gaia-9002 testnet is the Hyperbolic Time Chamber in Cosmos.

In the chamber, the inflation rate of Atoms is 1,000X of the normal level. An hour in the chamber is equivalent to almost a year outside. This is an amazing place for training Cosmonauts to fight in the upcoming Game of Stakes.

Missing some hours in the chamber does matter:

We need to transform to Super Cosmonauts. It’s time to enter the chamber again.


Cosmos is such an amazing community that a group of crazy strangers working together for the same initiative. Bugs and haters are everywhere, and they cannot stop us. Thanks to the amazing Cosmonauts.
