On Thursday, March 30, Milkomeda CEO Sebastian Guillemot announced a new update for the network. Among other things, the upgrade will enable Cardano users to deploy Ethereum smart contracts directly.
Note that Milkomeda is a sidechain that ensures blockchain compatibility with EVM networks. The protocol uses an L2 solution based on ZK-Rollups technology.
According to Guillemot, the update is scheduled for May. Head of Milkomeda so commented this upgrade:
Milkomeda also plans to add staking programs. According to Guillemot, the feature will also be available from the wallet with automatic rewards every 5 days.
Why is it important? Using the EVM environment, a developer can deploy Ethereum-based dApps on any network. To do this, you do not need to learn a new language, the existing tools are enough.
Milkomeda serves as a “bridge” between the network and the EVM environment. The ability to use contracts directly from the wallet will greatly simplify the development process and attract a new audience.
