Ethereum dApps can now run on Cardano
The Milkomeda Foundation has announced the debut of C1, an Ethereum Virtual Machine-compatible sidechain that is directly connected to the Cardano blockchain.
Users may now move assets effortlessly between the two blockchains, allowing popular Ethereum-based decentralized apps (dApps) to function on top of Cardano. This is accomplished using Milkomeda's wrapped smart contracts technology, which was just pioneered.
In February, the Milkomeda Foundation announced a partnership with Nomad, an interoperability protocol, to make it possible to easily bridge assets from the Ethereum network. The bridge between Cardano and Ethereum was then launched in testnet mode later that month.
