This would mark its third deployment and, more significantly, its first deployment on Solidity, the main programming language for writing smart contracts for the Ethereum blockchain. The new deployment is expected to create room for its expansion to several additional EVM-compatible blockchains.

In January of this year, the Djed stablecoin went live on the mainnet and has since shown growth in its utility.

Another significant development is that Dead Pxlz, a non-fungible token (NFT) project, will soon launch a new game in the Cardano ecosystem.

Dead Pxlz is using the Paima Engine, according to a tweet from Paima Studios, the company that created it, to produce the upcoming PXL Wars game.

Recent developments in Cardano ecosystem

Cardano builder IOG has published its most current weekly report, which highlights ecosystem developments.

The Hydra team investigated adding Hydra support to Kupo, worked on resolving state machine continuity on-chain and considered voting project possibilities. To prepare for the 0.10.0 release, the team also updated some dependencies and rectified a few problems in the test suites.

The Conway ledger era development and CIP-1694 have both seen additional progress over the past two weeks from the ledger team. Conway now supports Plutus v3 in particular, and CIP-1694 is the first version of Cardano’s on-chain governance. Achieving widespread consensus is essential as Cardano looks to the future, given its significance.
