“Once deployed, users of supported Ethereum tokens will be able to bring them over from Ethereum’s congested network and take advantage of Cardano’s transaction capacity and lower fees, while enjoying enhanced security, reduced cost, and interoperability.”

With the ERC-20 token converter, crypto projects will be able to move their native tokens to the Cardano chain seamlessly. The blog post also pointed out that the Cardano analog will possess the same value as the Ethereum-based coin. The process is also designed to be reversible via the baked-in two-way convertibility.
