Cardano was an extremely successful project back in 2020, and 2021 is another year during which the team behind the project will be celebrating more successes.
Recently, the developers at IOHK managed to finalize an upgrade which provides multi-asset support and allows experimenters on the testnet to test and become familiar with using cryptos from other blockchains on Cardano.
Creating native tokens
It’s essential to note the fact that the update introduces the ability to create ‘native tokens’.
This is another important step in the ‘Goguen’ rollout – another thing worth mentioning is that we’ll also be seeing smart contracts enabled on Cardano this year.
It’s been revealed more than once that the native tokens are a really exciting utility feature for Cardano and this will allow it to handle tokens and cryptos from other blockchain platforms in the very same way with all the key functionality available to Cardano’s ADA.
City A.M. online publication recently noted that “This solution allows tokens from Ethereum, whether for monetary value or utility intentions, to be represented on Cardano without the need for smart contracts or custom code.”
It’s also important to note the fact that this also enables those tokens to enjoy all the key benefits of Cardano’s coin ADA.
Also, other blockchain applications from other platforms can take advantage of “Cardano’s superior speed, security and reduced transaction costs,” as the online publication mentioned above notes.
