Nibiru integrates leveraged derivatives trading, spot trading, staking, and bond liquidity provision into a single user interface, allowing users of over 40 blockchains to trade leveraged using a set of componentized decentralized applications.
The security of the Nibiru blockchain relies on a set of validators who commit new blocks and participate in the Tendermint BFT consensus (Cosmos core) by translating votes containing cryptographic signatures signed with each validator's private key.
Validators rely on NIBI, the protocol's own token used for gas, control, and mining. Users can delegate NIBI to validators, who record and verify transactions in exchange for a reward.
This is a truly massive foundational project, important to both the Cosmos ecosystem and the crypto industry.
