Cardano Launches AGIX ERC20 Converter

IOHK, the firm behind Cardano, recently announced the launch of the AGIX ERC20 converter testnet. In coming up with the offering, the network struck a partnership with SingularityNET allowing users to move AGIX tokens between Cardano and Ethereum through the permissioned bridge.  

Dr. Ben Goertzel, SinglarityNET’s CEO, said: 

“I’m extremely excited by the emergence of the AGIX-ADA/AGIX ETH converter onto Cardano testnet, and soon after that onto mainnet. Every revolution is carried out one step at a time, and this is the first in a series of steps whose result will be the porting of the full SingularityNET decentralized AI platform onto Cardano.” 

Cardano has recently made blockchain interoperability an integral part of its development. To this end, IOHK has announced a further collaboration to create multiple bridges to link the network with other blockchains. This is expected to have the effect of allowing blockchain solutions to be accessible to a wide range of individuals and will increase  

the liquidity flow for Cardano’s ecosystem. 

The main use of the converter is to allow users to move the AGIX ERC20 tokens between the source network and the Cardano. Users do not need technical expertise to use the tool, accessible through a URL. Users simply proceed to create or use an existing metamask account and configure the linked Cardano address.

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels 

The Cardano price chart shows us that ADA had fallen significantly on Thursday, with the price looking to make a recovery during the ongoing session. ADA faces strong resistance at $1.35, so we could see it test this level of resistance if the price pushes higher.
