Neptune Dash Announces Launch of Cosmos Network Validator and Investment into Cosmos Atom
VANCOUVER, June 03, 2019 – Neptune Dash Technologies Corp. (“Neptune Dash” or the “Company”) (TSX.V:DASH) (OTC:NPPTF) (FWB:1NW) is pleased to provide an update to last week’s announcement regarding its intent to launch a Cosmos Validator and add Cosmos ATOM to its portfolio of crypto assets.
Neptune Dash has launched a Cosmos Network Validator and secured enough delegations to put it in the 47th spot on the exclusive list of 100 network validators. The Company’s validator currently has 315,271 ATOM delegated to it (approximately $2.5 million CAD). Neptune Dash will earn a reward of roughly 1.5% per year from any ATOM delegated to it. The Company’s goal is to attract additional delegators from the $1.55 billion CAD Cosmos Network and rapidly increase this revenue stream.
Delegators play a vital role in the Cosmos Network. The main task of delegators is to distribute voting power among validators, which helps decentralize Cosmos. Anyone who owns ATOM can choose a validator to delegate their stake and will earn a 10-15% annual return in ATOM for doing so. Validators charge a fee to delegators for their services.
In addition, Neptune Dash has purchased 33,159 ATOM at an average purchase price of $4.88 USD. These ATOM are delegated to the Company’s validator and earn approximately 15% in network rewards per year. The Company intends to increase its ownership of ATOM over time through both Validator rewards and occasional strategic purchases.
The Company’s validator can be viewed in detail on the cosmos network at the following link: Validator
“We are very excited regarding Cosmos and how quickly it is moving up the ranking of crypto market capitalization. Certainly, the most strategic position for Neptune is to run one of the top ranked, most reliable and well known Validators in the ecosystem and the fact that we are already 47th out of 100 shows that we are quickly moving down that path, stated Cale Moodie, Neptune Dash CEO. We are committed to adding crypto assets to our balance sheet through Masternodes and now through our Validator, while keeping our operating costs as low as possible.”
The Cosmos network was announced in 2017 and it launched in 2019. It is a third-generation blockchain network with significant improvements over both first-generation (e.g., Bitcoin) and second-generation (e.g., Ethereum) networks. Cosmos is a proof of stake network that solves fundamental challenges in both scaling and transaction volume which have been holding back current networks.
Governance of the Cosmos network is maintained through 100 exclusive validators. These validators require a high level of expertise and security to operate and they form the backbone of the network. All block rewards and transaction fees on the Cosmos network, from the approximately $75,000,000 USD in daily transaction volume, are distributed among these 100 validators.
