Informal Staking has been operating a Cosmos Hub validator since the genesis block in 2019 and continues to be an active network participant working to improve the utility of the Cosmos Hub and providing IBC relayer services. In our time as a validator for Cosmos Hub we have not been slashed and maintain 99.99% uptime.
The Cosmos Hub blockchain is powered by the ATOM, the gas, staking and governance token. ATOM is also used to bootstrap new networks and will be able to lease security to consumer chains following the Interchain Security upgrade.
Cosmos Hub was the first blockchain in the Interchain and is the only chain that upholds the core principles of the Cosmos vision. Cosmos Hub is dedicated to supporting the Interchain ecosystem.
