What is Osmosis (OSMO)

Osmosis or OSMO (OSMO/USDT – Trade it here) is a Layer-1, Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain designed with the Cosmos SDK to serve as a sandbox for automated market makers (AMMs). The chain enables developers to construct and deploy bespoke AMMs by using Osmosis’ on-chain governance system and its numerous modules. Basic information for the Osmosis token is available on the MEXC Digital asset introduction page. Don’t forget to check out the announcement of OSMO and find out how you can get rewards for depositing OSMO tokens!

How Does It Works?

The Osmosis automated market maker (AMM) allows users to construct new and unique liquidity pools that participants manage and vote on. It runs in the Cosmos ecosystem, and it specializes in the Interchain DeFi movement (Tendermint-based blockchains).Osmosis token (OSMO) on the other hand, is utilized in its pools to vote, stake, and offer liquidity. It is a bit complicated so let me break it down to you.

The Cosmos Ecosystem

Osmosis is a decentralized exchange (DEX) and automated market maker (AMM) protocol running in the Cosmos Ecosystem. It is an “Internet of blockchain” network that allows developers to create interoperable decentralized applications (dApps). DApps on these networks connect with one another and exchange tokens and data using Cosmos’ Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) Protocol. Cosmos also provides a software development kit (SDK) for projects and teams to use in order to build on its network.

The Osmosis automated market maker (AMM)

Osmosis is a DEX protocol. It uses algorithms to price crypto assets in liquidity pools, acting as a centralized market maker in an order-book method platform. Their AMM is special because it allows users to establish their own liquidity pools or clone existing ones with custom settings. Users have the freedom to exchange assets from over 47 distinct chains inside the Cosmos Ecosystem.

Superfluid Staking

Token holders in traditional DeFi must choose between earning income from staking (which helps to keep the protocol running) or generating revenue from liquidity (which provides AMM stability). Superfluid staking on the hand, allows you to do both simultaneously. Users are allowed to stake tokens while providing assets to a liquidity pool. This means that users receive reward fees linked with liquidity pool transactions while getting rewarded for staking.
