Native-to-erc20 extension for AMB

For demonstration purposes we have deployed a new extension for the Kovan-Sokol Arbitrary Message Bridge. This extension allows to transfer native tokens (SPOA) to the Kovan Testnet in form of ERC20-compatible tokens.

The initial goals to deploy this extension were:

  • investigate the ability to transfer native tokens to another chain through AMB; these experiments will be used to migrate existing bridges such as the POA-POA20 bridge and WETC bridge to the Arbitrary Message Bridge platform
  • demonstrate of collecting fees on AMB contracts with Gas Token
  • test a new Burner Wallet plugin to transfer assets through AMB

Anyone could test the new extension by using instructions provided in the TokenBridge documentation.
