Token Description & Project Background

Juno is a layer-1 Delegated Proof-of-Stake blockchain built using the Cosmos SDK framework. It is a permissionless interoperable smart contract network that automatically executes, controls, or documents a procedure of relevant events and actions according to the terms of such contract or agreement to be valid and usable across different networks. 

JUNO is the network’s token, and plays a similar role to that of various other Proof of Stake blockchains. It fuels the interoperably smart contracts deployed in the ecosystem, it covers all transactions, validators stake their tokens to secure the network and it is the key to community on-chain governance. 

Juno is a community-driven initiative involving various developers, validators, and delegators within the Cosmos ecosystem.

As a community-led project, Juno has not received outside funding from industry backers. Thus, the platform’s native asset JUNO was not subjected to a private or public token sale.

The initial JUNO distribution in October 2021 saw tokens airdropped to eligible ATOM stakers. According to documentation, the airdrop coincided with the release of Juno’s mainnet.   

Risks of JUNO

Like an investment in other crypto assets, there are some general risks to investing in JUNO. These include:  (i) volatility risk and liquidity risk, (ii) short history risk, (iii) demand risk, (iv) forking risk, (v) code defects, (vi) regulatory risk, (vii) electronic trading risk, and (viii) cyber security risk. For additional information of these and other general risks associated with crypto assets and Uphold’s platform, please refer to the Risks Specific to Holding Digital Assets statement.

In addition to these general risks, an investment in JUNO is subject to the following specific risks:

  • The Layer-1 space faces intense competition. Any potential success associated with JUNO will depend on the Juno blockchain’s rate of adoption by developers and projects, as well as the continued security and popularity of the Cosmos ecosystem it is connected to.
  • As a community-funded project, there has been no direct capital raised for the project’s future development. Any potential success will rely on the efforts of a global community of validators and developers contributing to the network. 

We emphasize that this Crypto Asset Statement is not an exhaustive description or summary of all risks associated with JUNO. Investors should conduct their own research and perform their own assessment before trading any crypto asset to determine the appropriate level of risk for their personal circumstances.
