Cardano will soon be connected to Cosmos.


On Wednesday, a tweet from Cardano Daily, a dedicated Twitter handle for Cardano news, reveals that Cardano will soon have a bridge with Cosmos.

“Coincidentally, I have mentioned in a tweet that Cardano needs a bridge to another ecosystem, and the cosmos – Cardano bridge supported by Sifchain was released right after,” Cardano Daily tweeted.

Sifchain, Omni-Chain Dex on Cosmo providing Swapping, staking, and bridging between Ethereum & Cosmos responded quickly to launch a proposal for voting to proceed on Cosmos Cardano Bridge.

 

Notably, the bridge will give both chains access to new liquidity markets and token-based economies while allowing Cardano users access to an ecosystem of blockchains, dApps, assets, and utilities through Cosmos, popularly called the “internet of blockchains.” The Cosmos ecosystem currently boasts $4.2 billion in staked crypto assets, $200 million in monthly cross-chain transactions, 40 chains, and thousands of dApps.

However, it is worth noting that the bridge has not been well received by several members of the Cardano community who feel it is poorly timed. One user noted that it is too early to focus on interoperability as it could not be determined which chains would thrive in the long run, saying that the focus now should be on security, scalability, and governance.

It is not surprising that the Cardano community is skeptical about the launch of a bridge, as network bridges are often targeted by hackers leading to several users losing their assets. The Ronin bridge hack in March is a clear example, as hackers made away with over $550 million in Ethereum and USDC.

It is worth noting that the Cardano community is currently focused on the long-anticipated Vasil hard fork, which was expected in July but had to be delayed after new bugs were observed in testing. Notably, Input Output Global (IOG) chief Charles Hoskinson has assured users that he does not expect further delays, noting that developers are in the final stages of testing.

The upgrade is expected in a matter of weeks and promises to improve the network’s scalability and usher in over 1000 dApps. At the time of writing, Cardano’s native token ADA is trading at the $0.5051 price point, with a positive 0.04% change in price in the last 24 hours and 0.84% change in the last seven days.
