Now you can bridge $IAG over Ethereum<>Milkomeda<>Cardano and $USDC (now active). Tomorrow we will provide support to $USDT, $WBTC, $WETH and others. Stay tuned. Everyone welcome to #Cardano !!#Cardanocommunity welcomes you with open arms— Iagon (@IagonOfficial) May 31, 2022
Now, for another announcement: Shortly after announcing support for USDC, the Iagon team says it hopes to add support for USDT, Wrapped Bitcoin and Ethereum. In the past week, the IAGON Ethereum-Cardano token, built to enable the conversion of ERC-20 IAG tokens to CNT IAG tokens, went live. The purpose-made bridge was created so that tokens on different blockchains (Ethereum and Cardano) could interact.
