The tokens will exist on the mainchain of the Cardano network. This indicates that users can use them as much as they use the native token ADA,

The IOHK team added that ADA will remain the network’s “principal currency”. However, Cardano becomes a multi-asset blockchain with the upgrade. According to the team, this will open up “a constellation of possibilities”.

Reacting to the development, Marketing and Communications Director at IOHK, Tim Harrison said:

IOHK team used a hard fork to implement the update on the Testnet a few days ago. The announcement pointed out that a release on the Mainnet will follow.
