The feedback was a positive one, just as always and fans in the community cheered in the comment section.
The official blog post, which we suggest that you check out entirely notes that “the Goguen rollout continues with another key building block in Cardano’s evolution into a decentralized, multi-asset (MA) smart contract platform.”
The notes go on and explain that “The Goguen ‘Mary’ update – named after author Mary Shelley – introduces the ability to create user-defined tokens. These custom tokens will be ‘native’, so they can be transacted directly on the blockchain, just like ADA.”
The same blog post notes that ADA will still be Cardano’s main currency, but on the other hand, Cardano will be transforming into a multi-asset (MA) blockchain, and this will open up various possibilities.
