Milkomeda, a Layer 2 Protocol (Rollups) delivering EVM capabilities to non-EVM blockchains in collaboration with Nomad, a novel interoperability protocol, announced the creation of a bridge between Cardano and Ethereum. This implies that assets can be sent back and forth between the two blockchains via the bridge.
Users will be able to access the bridge via a MetaMask configured to connect to the Milkomeda Cardano Testnet and the Rinkeby Testnet, respectively. Future Milkomeda deployments intend to allow interoperability between Cardano, Solana and other L1 blockchains. Milkomeda will work to achieve both the sidechain and multi-blockchain interoperability visions in this way.
Users holding tokens on the connected chain can move these assets to Cardano and vice versa, simply by wrapping them on the sidechain that links the two blockchains. These tokens become native assets on Cardano mainnet and perform the same functions as native assets on Cardano, once wrapped.
In another development, another DEX is set to debut on the Cardano blockchain, and the occamDEX team announced that its development is finished and ready to be tested on the Milkomeda testnet. The team also announced the completion of its audit with HX Technologies and an upcoming mainnet release.
