Input Output launches suite of sidechains for Cardano blockchain

A new EVM Sidechain for Solidity developers is set to increase interoperability between Cardano and Ethereum. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) is the virtual computer system at the heart of the Ethereum ’s operating structure.


Solidity developers will be able to bring their existing Ethereum applications to an EVM-compatible sidechain that supports all the EVM tools and frameworks they currently use on the Ethereum network.

This platform will make it easy for Solidity developers to build applications in an environment with all of the aspects they love about Ethereum and all of the aspects they would like access to on Cardano.

Sidechains

Separate blockchains connected to the main network, Sidechains allow developers to bring new features to blockchain platforms. The new offering from Input Output Global (IOG), one of the systems companies behind Cardano, will introduce a new suite of sidechains.

Sidechains enhance programmability (the ability for developers to have more control over the types of solutions they can build), scalability (the ability of a to grow with its user base), and interoperability (the ability of different blockchain networks to connect) within the blockchain space.

The first step on this journey is the EVM Sidechain alpha release. The currently private test environment will next move to an alpha release, permissioned testnet, where users can start building on the sidechain.

Once the bridging mechanism is fully developed, users will be able to securely send assets between the EVM Sidechain and the mainnet.

Full capabilities of the sidechain will be developed over the coming year, with mainnet deployment set to launch in 2023.

Over time, as more users adopt technology, we will need more specialized sidechains designed to address specific use cases.

Once the EVM Sidechain is fully developed, developers will have the ability to use the EVM Sidechain as a framework to create their own sidechain.

“At IO we want to give devs the best tools to take advantage of blockchain, no matter their background in the space. Sidechains enable us to expand the feature set for niche apps and provide a test ground for new capabilities for developers. The EVM Sidechain will let the Cardano community benefit from the billions of dollars of investment that have built the Ethereum ecosystem, with ADA holders able to participate in securing these satellite ecosystems.”
