Network News

Stakers Bulletins keep our delegates informed by publishing timely insights on the issues that affect the value of their Atoms including governance items, protocol changes, and the wider Cosmos ecosystem. Our private newsletter is exclusively available to Mythos stakers. If you plan to stake with Mythos, you can sign up for eligibility.

Hodler Alignment

We’re Cosmos holders like you and we delegate our Atoms alongside our delegates to ensure we stay financially aligned in our goal of optimizing rewards and minimizing slashing. Atoms are held and retained by our Mythos Capital fund.


Informed participation in Cosmos governance is an important part of the process for delegates and validators as is both required by the protocol and integral for the health of the community.

We our role in governance will be based on three principles:

  • Optimize for the long-term value of the network
  • Keep our delegates maximally informed
  • Participate in governance with transparency and integrity

Many aspects of the Cosmos governance process are in the design phase and we are closely monitoring development as it evolves.
