MELD and VENT Present ADAmatic
We have teamed up with Polygon to build a 2-way bridge from Polygon to Cardano!
ADAmatic is a two-way bridge to bridge your Polygon-based assets to Cardano, and back. Everyone can use ADAmatic independently of MELD, but we are building it to bring more token choices and liquidity into Cardano for MELD users, as well as giving Polygon-based DeFi users on-ramps to the unique, DeFi-based financial services that only MELD offers!
As part of a recent strategic partnership with Vent Finance, the ADAmatic bridge is one of the first products MELD and VENT are bringing to market. This is a much needed addition for not just MELD, but also the greater Cardano Ecosystem.

MELD Announces Hachi
The project builds the first low-level analysis & auditing tools for Cardano Smart Contracts.
The Hachi project is being advised by Dr. Nguyen Anh Quynh, one of the world’s leading security researchers. Being a public endeavor, our MELD engineers have been humbly supporting and inviting other researchers and engineers worldwide to join hands. The project has been working on forming the Security Standards for Cardano Smart Contracts and building the toolings required in the upcoming years.
Hachi focuses on analyzing Plutus Core, the on-chain form of the Cardano smart contract. By leveraging static and dynamic analysis, we can understand how the code actually executes on the blockchain, rather than code at a higher level. Thanks to this unique insight, we shall be able to comprehend and uncover things that other approaches may just too easily miss.
This project proposes to build a new analysis framework for the Cardano platform, in which we can reverse, debug, analyze and evaluate Cardano smart contracts.
