April 13, 2022

When will the vote and update take place?

  • Start: 25 March 2022

  • End: 8 April 2022

  • Current status: 99.41% (in favour)

  • Update: 12 April 2022

What's new in this update?

  • Interchain Accounts. It will allow not only to transfer tokens (OSMO, ATOM, etc.) across networks via IBC (as before), but the different networks will be able to interact with each other on a higher level, for example, allowing lending/borrowing or DeFi between networks. Users of new products/projects using this "Interchain" model will be able to interact with multiple networks and sub-products within the same interface and without having to move tokens between networks, with multiple platforms or interact with different products at the same time. This will bring with it the interconnection of networks and agility/ease of operation. Definitely a joy for users.

  • Liquid Staking. This new functionality will be enabled once the governance proposal 67 has been approved. All those tokens that will be delegated in Cosmos in exchange for rewards (staking) as delegations in PoS (Proof-of-Stake) systems will generate a new liquid token that can be used as collateral on decentralized platforms. This means that, in addition to the yields that will be obtained by staking, it will be possible to increase using this liquid token on decentralized platforms (with products such as lending/loaning or farming, for example).
