Starting today, Coinbase supports Cosmos (ATOM) at Coinbase.com and in the Coinbase Android and iOS apps. Coinbase customers can now buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store ATOM. ATOM will be available for customers in all Coinbase-supported regions.
Cosmos is an interoperable blockchain protocol that facilitates the transfer of data between existing chains. It operates via a hub-and-spoke model that leverages the design elements of other chains to enable cross-chain interaction. The Cosmos framework features a Byzantine Fault-Tolerant (BFT) consensus algorithm developed by Tendermint to secure the protocol.
One of the most common requests we hear from customers is to be able to buy and sell more cryptocurrencies on Coinbase. Per the terms of our listing process, we anticipate supporting more assets that meet our standards over time. We are also investing in new tools to help people understand and explore cryptocurrencies. We launched informational asset pages (see ATOM here), as well as a new section of the Coinbase website to answer common questions about crypto.
You can sign up for a Coinbase account here to buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store ATOM today.
