Leading blockchain developer and Milkomeda co-founder Sebastien Guillemot announced that Cardano (ADA) will become the top EVM chain by next month. This will be possible as a result of Milkomeda's introduction of a new feature that will allow every Cardano user to use any EVM contract directly from any Cardano wallet, and all within ADA, Guillemot said.

Do you also consider these self-owns? No, because they’re bringing new capabilities to chains making them stronger
However, some users were unhappy with this development regarding Cardano. In their view, this calls into question the validity and uniqueness of Cardano as a standalone blockchain. To some, it seemed like an attempt to make life easier for lazy developers who do not want to learn Haskell or Plutus, Cardano's native programming languages.
The developer also noted the growing activity on the Milkomeda network related to the adoption of the Paima Engine, a blockchain gaming innovation from the Guillemot team. In his view, this has the potential to turn Cardano into a powerhouse for on-chain gaming in the future.
