Milkomeda, a Layer 2 protocol, has announced the exciting news that the Djed stablecoin protocol is coming to Milkomeda-C1, the EVM-compatible sidechain of Cardano.

Launched in March 2022, Milkomeda C1 enables Ethereum dApps to be deployed in the Cardano ecosystem. Milkomeda C1 opens the doors for users to take advantage of a slew of dApps thanks to EVM compatibility.

Now, the Djed protocol will be launched on the sidechain, marking its third deployment, just months after the stablecoin launched in late January this year.

It will also mark the first deployment of Djed implemented in the Solidity smart contract programming language, opening the door for its expansion to several additional EVM-compatible blockchains.

According to a blog post by Djed Alliance, the steward of the Djed Stablecoin Protocol, which supports various implementations and deployments of the protocol on multiple blockchains and promotes healthy collaboration between them, the deployment on Milkomeda-C1 is based on version O (Osiris) of the protocol.

The deployment on the sidechain would be the first that is fully autonomous. Djed's Version O uses a new oracle controlled by Milkomeda's nodes, which checks prices every 10 seconds to offset delays, and provides a transaction limit to reduce reserve draining in case of oracle delays.

Osiris' primary point of differentiation is that it allows reserve coins and stablecoins to be simultaneously sold back to the Djed contract, regardless of the reserve ratio, so long as the sale does not lower the reserve ratio.

In the Djed protocol, a "reserve coin" denotes ownership of a portion of the surplus of the underlying reserves of the base coin.
