According to a Monday release, Adaswap, the ecosystem developer supporting one of the first decentralized exchanges on the Cardano blockchain, has launched on the mainnet. According to rumors, the platform’s testnet version was introduced in June. One of the first applications built on top of the Milkomedia Network, a cutting-edge protocol that gives blockchains like Cardano EVM capabilities, was AdaSwap.
AdaSwap, a decentralized exchange powered by Cardano, has raised $2.6 million from backers including Pluto Digital, GBV Capital, iAngels, Finova Capital, and Banter Capital. Gal Gadot, an Israeli actress who rose to fame internationally with “Wonder Woman” in 2018, is one of the angel investors who contributed funds to the endeavor. She said,
“This is an exciting investment opportunity for us in the crypto space.”
