Cardano expands connectivity capabilities to Ethereum.

Cardano expands connectivity capabilities to Ethereum.

The integration now simplifies the work for developers with applications based on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) on Cardano's sidechain.

A standardized protocol, originally introduced by Cosmos Network in 2019, allows the unification of several heterogeneous blockchains by sending information through special channels. Data can be easily transferred using a blockchain with various consensus mechanisms. A direct connection between them is not required to ensure the authenticity of certain information.

For example, with Cardano, enterprises that rely on the IBC protocol can still take advantage of the network's deterministic fees and other benefits when working with other networks. "With the implementation of IBC in Cardano, enterprises benefit from a platform for developing and deploying scalable, secure, and compatible blockchain solutions," the foundation stated.

Governance Controversy
In other news, the foundation recently sparked some controversy with its voting decision earlier this week.

During the initial bootstrapping stage, which will take place between the two stages of the hard fork implementation, the foundation will become a member of the Interim Constitutional Committee (ICC).

It has already participated in the ICC elections, placing the Cardano Atlantic Council at the top of its rankings. Factors such as the level of involvement, technical expertise, transparency, and so on are considered when voting for candidates.

However, the foundation faced some pushback from some community members who believe it should have excluded itself from the entire ICC voting process. "I think it's wrong that the Cardano Foundation should put its finger on the scales," one user commented.
