Polkadot vs Cosmos: Neck-to-neck, but one shows more potential

  • ATOM and DOT were witnessing a price correction at press time. 
  • Both blockchain technologies showed immense future growth potential. 

Cosmos [ATOM] and Polkadot [DOT] bring together blockchains, facilitating effortless transfers of data and assets. On one hand, Cosmos allows developers to build appchains and bridges between blockchains, while Polkadot uses a sharded multi-chain model, connecting independent parachains within its ecosystem.

Token Unlocks, in a recent Twitter thread, pointed out the similarities and differences between the two blockchains approaches to interoperability.

While they had their unique approaches, adding value to their ecosystems, investors might have to look for more to make informed decisions. 

Token Unlocks’ tweet mentioned that Polkadot’s shared multichain architecture allows for shared security among parachains. Moreover, Polkadot recently launched a security feature termed PolkaSafe.

PolkaSafe allows multiple parties to collectively manage and control assets in a secure and organized manner within the Polkadot ecosystem.

To the contrary, Cosmos utilizes the Tendermint consensus algorithm to achieve fast block confirmations and high throughput. Apart from this, both blockchains also offer flourishing DeFi and NFT ecosystems, adding to their overall value. 

Which direction should investors go?

In terms of blockchain capabilities and growth potential, both ATOM and DOT were in neck-to-neck competition. However, investors must check both blockchains’ native tokens’ price action to understand which bag they should put their money in.

The bearish market condition has restricted both tokens from lifting their values in the recent past. To add to the misery, both tokens also witnessed a major price correction over the last few hours, like most cryptos.

According to CoinMarketCap, DOT’s price plunged by over 10% in the last seven days and was trading at $4.47. ATOM also displayed a similar price movement, as its value sank by nearly 10% last week.

At the time of writing, it was trading at $7.54 with a market cap of over $2 billion. The declining price action also caused negative sentiment around both tokens to spike quite a few times in the last 30 days.

However, there was good news. Over the last few hours, both tokens recovered slightly, as their hourly charts were green. Additionally, both DOT and ATOM’s Binance funding rates were red.

Generally, prices move in a different direction than funding rates. Therefore, the chances of a trend reversal remained high for both in the coming days.
