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.
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.
