Slashing risk• Downtime slashing (liveness fault): 0.01% of ATOMs slashed. It happens when the validator is down for approximately 10,000 blocks (about 16 hours). • Double sign slashing: 5% of ATOMs slashed. It happens if the validator tries to validate twice the same block (malicious behavior or poor set-up).
Cosmos, the internet of blockchains, is an inter-chain ecosystem on which blockchains can quickly scale and interoperate. Cosmos is an entire ecosystem of tools to build interoperable application-specific chains. Its main components are the SDK (Cosmos Software Development Kit), Tendermint, the IBC or Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol, and the Cosmos Hub. The IBC makes it possible for all blockchains built on Tendermint and the Cosmos tech stack to communicate and exchange assets and data. The Cosmos Hub is the main Cosmos blockchain, and other Cosmos SDK blockchains can connect with it to interact with each other. ATOM is the native token of the Cosmos Hub blockchain; it can be used for trading, staking, governance, and to interact with Dapps built on the network. Staking ATOM can also give rights to airdrops. Allocation of Cosmos native asset $ATOM went as follows: the Interchain Foundation distributed the ATOMs in the following way, 5% of the ATOM went to its initial donors, 10% went to the Interchain Foundation, 10% went to the company developing most of the software (Tendermint Inc.), and the remaining 75% to be distributed according to the results of the private and public fundraisers.
