Do you mean in terms of JVM support? Because Project Loom works only for Java language and Kotlin Coroutines only for Kotlin

Kotlin coroutines are cross-platform, for starters. And for us Android folk, Kotlin coroutines will probably be our only option for utilizing structured concurrency.

Threads will become cheaper when being blocked while not doing computation. Other than that, we'll see.

I think it depends on final implementation of Loom, maybe something may be reused for Kotlin, maybe not

I can't see why coroutines wouldn't be updated to support Project Loom.

In general I agree with Corneil, Kotlin coroutines do not require any VM support

I see coroutines as a DSL to develop async and reactive code and underneath there is an implementation that takes care of business.
