You may have seen some users post a wallet address with the "cosmos" prefix on their Blurt Blogs or may have even seen memos sent to the @cosmosdrop account and wondered what that was all about.
First let me explain that there is a Blockchain called Cosmos with the main top 30, 3 Billion Dollar marketcap coin, ATOM, and many other tokens in its ecosystem such as Akash (AKT), Sentinel (DVPN), KAVA, Osmosis (OSMO) and more.
The vision of the Cosmos Tendermint foundation is to build a network of decentralised, parallel and independent blockchains all sharing the same base code and able to communicate via the IBC (Inter Blockchain Communication) protocol.
Recently several Dexes (Decentralised Exchanges) are popping up on the Cosmos network, creating central hubs of frictionless exchange between all Cosmos chain based coins. Osmosis launched recently with a TVL (Total Value Locked) of already $78 Million in its first week of launch. Gravity an Sifchain Dexes to launch soon.
@jacobgadikian has been commissioned to help launch various chains on Cosmos and I will likely be assisting in the community management of some of them. Once we have had sufficient experience launching test chains we would also like to look into having a portion of Blurt's total supply to exist in parallel on Cosmos with bridging between, where current witnesses will be able to run dual Graphene-Cosmos validators.
The idea is that users who attest their Cosmos address on Blurt will get airdropped future Cosmos tokens to that address. The official way to become eligible for any claimdrops would be only to send your Cosmos wallet address in memo to the @cosmosdrop Blurt account.
1. Install the Keplr Chrome extension
2. Create a new Cosmos wallet account
2.1 Click the profile image on the top right
2.2 Click the
+ Add Account button
Create new account
2.4 Save the mneumonic seed you are given in a safe place and click 'Next'
Note wallets like Exodus don't give you the seed phrase and hence you might not be able to claim airdrops, so be sure if you use wallets other than Keplr that you are given a seed phrase.
2.5 Copy the wallet address that shows under your username, it starts with the prefix 'çosmos'
3. Send your Cosmos address in memo to @cosmosdrop
3.1 Visit https://blurtwallet.com
3.2 Click on the dropdown on the liquid balance and select 'Transfer'
3.3 Send a memo with your public Cosmos wallet address to the @cosmosdrop account
Only costs 0.001 BLURT to send!
Disclaimer: Claimdrops may or may not occur, they will be done on a best effort basis and may not eventuate, but it is a good idea to attest incase they do materialise. @cosmosdrop will become a cache of active user credentials. The more attestations we have, the more interesting our community becomes to other projects seeking to bootstrap a community via airdrops.
