“OKEx always embraces the strong force driven by start-ups from worldwide. As one of the largest blockchain communities, we welcome high-potential tokens to be listed on OKEx. We are pleased to announce Cosmos (ATOM) launching on OKEx and this highly forward-looking cross-chain blockchain project can definitely drive the industry forward,” says Andy Cheung, Head of Operations of OKEx.

Developed by the Tendermint team since 2016, Cosmos aims to achieve a “blockchain-based internet” based on token transfer and to construct a deeply integrated token economy ecosystem.
