About Osmosis

What Is Osmosis?

Osmosis is an advanced AMM protocol built using the Cosmos SDK that will allow developers to design, build, and deploy their own customized AMMs.

Heterogeneity and sovereignty are two core tenets of the Cosmos ecosystem, and Osmosis takes these two values and extends them into core characteristics of this AMM protocol. Rather than aim for a one-size-fits-all homogeneous approach for AMMs and its liquidity pools, Osmosis is designed such that the most efficient solution is reachable through the process of experimentation and rapid iteration by leveraging the wisdom of the crowd. It achieves this by offering deep customizability to AMM designers, and a governance mechanism by which each AMM pool’s stakeholders (i.e. liquidity providers) can govern and direct their pools.

As a decentralized P2P protocol, the platform is used for trading tokens and creating liquidity. The project conducted an ICO in October 2021. The token sale led by Paradigm Ventures helped the company to raise $21 million.

Osmosis takes two of the core tenets of the Cosmos ecosystem (heterogeneity and sovereignty) and extends them into the core features of its AMM protocol. As such, the protocol utilizes self-governing liquidity pools that allow users to vote on pool parameters and protocols, and provide liquidity, and stake.
