This sidechain allows transfer of assets, Ethereum dApps to run on Cardano and vice versa
AdaSwap, a Cardano-based decentralized exchange (DEX) with an automated market maker (AMM), has announced its collaboration with Milkomeda. Through Layer 2 solutions as a sidechain, Milkomeda provides EVM compatibility to non-EVM blockchains, including Cardano. This sidechain allows the transfer of assets, and also Ethereum dApps to run on Cardano, and vice versa.
AdaSwap Fam! Today we will be going live with our testnet! We are very excited to share this news with you, so keep your eyes on us today for updates and come try out our testnet 🚀 We are looking forward to your feedback so we can continue to grow the Cardano ecosystem together. pic.twitter.com/RYgX7SwZdk

Through this collaboration, AdaSwap and Milkomeda intend to pave the way for the integration of Ethereum Virtual Machines (EVMs ) into the Cardano ecosystem. Using Milkomeda, AdaSwap seeks to integrate non-Cardano projects and smart contracts.
Additionally, integration with Milkomeda aims to make it possible for non-Cardano tokens to be swapped and interchanged seamlessly. Therefore, users with non-Cardano tokens are presented with more opportunities and utility for their existing tokens.
Today, AdaSwap announced the launch of its testnet deployed on the Milkomeda network.
Cardano records DeFi inflows
