London, England, November 23, 2021 - Cardano’s DeFi and Stableocoin hub, Ardana, announces today its latest strategic partnership with NEAR, a decentralized application platform (dApp) that focuses on both developer and user experience. Through this partnership with NEAR, which includes a grant, Ardana will build the bridge infrastructure required for asset transfer between Cardano and NEAR.
By connecting Cardano and NEAR and supporting integrations between projects on both ecosystems, Ardana will enable token transfers between the NEAR and Cardano blockchains and, later on, enable cross-chain smart contract functionality. The NEAR coin will also eventually be available as an asset on Cardano, and it will be usable as collateral on Ardana to mint stablecoins.
“NEAR’s vision always envisioned a multi-chain world, whereby each blockchain could seamlessly talk and exchange data between one another. Ardana to aid in the creation of a multi-chain world, and integrations like this help realise that goal,” said Erik Trautman, NEAR Foundation CEO.
“Ardana is on a mission to provide the crypto community with seamless integration between different projects and ecosystems. With that in mind, we are thrilled to announce a partnership with NEAR that will bring Ardana closer to this goal. The collaboration will help both organizations explore new avenues of growth in the emerging ecosystem of blockchain technology and will prove to be a landmark in the future for blockchain scalability.” said Ryan Matovu, Ardana CEO and Founder.
Ardana is delighted to be partnering with NEAR and creating the link between two vibrant ecosystems.
