🌉 Cross-chain bridge to Cardano with Input Output

💰 Wallet Integration with Opera

🆕 USDC coming to Nervos

🤝 Collaboration with NFT network Start Finance

 ⚒️ sUDT improvements

And much more!


Nervos & Cardano Cross-Chain Bridge to Cardano

After much anticipation, we’re excited to announce our latest project with IOHK, the developers of the Cardano blockchain: a cross-chain bridge connecting the Cardano and Nervos networks. Once completed, it will be Cardano’s first cross-chain bridge, potentially unlocking access to billions of dollars in completed transactions and further propelling Nervos and Cardano’s shared vision for blockchain interoperability.


Opera to Add Nervos to Browser Crypto Wallet

The Nervos Network is excited to announce a new collaboration with Opera, the world’s first browser with Web 3 capabilities. Once the integration is completed, the browser’s hundreds of millions of users will be able to send and receive $CKB directly within the Opera browser and access Nervos dApps listed on the built-in DApps Store. Nervos users will also have another wallet option for making $CKB transactions, and Nervos developers will have increased reach through Opera’s massive user base.


Nervos and StartFi Partner for Affordable NFT Minting

With recent announcements in the Nervos Network surrounding Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) we are excited to announce a new partnership with StartFi.

StartFi is a Web3-based multi-channel network for NFT creators looking to transform the scope of minting and buying of NFTs. Their NFT ecosystem brings together content creators and prospective buyers in a unique, mutually beneficial manner.


Upgrade of sUDT and Anyone-Can-Pay Contract

Our ambitious road map is already being tackled, and we have been hard at work delivering upgrades on the core protocol which will lead to our first hard fork later this year. EVM compatibility and Universal DeFi Applications remain high priorities for us through the first half of the year. We are also exploring the popular NFT space by focusing on key partnerships and looking at other tools and SDKs in order to bring real-world applications into the crypto world.


Ankr Integrates Support for Nervos Nodes

We are excited to announce that, through integration with Ankr, the deploying, hosting and running of Nervos nodes, will be made that much easier. The collaboration means users can run a Nervos Node via the blockchain cloud infrastructure provider’s platform.
