After five years of work, the Ethereum bridge with Dogecoin has reached the final stage. Dogecoin users will be able to access smart contracts and decentralized applications running on the Ethereum network thanks to this bridge before the end of 2022.

After the bridge between the two Blockchains is established, Dogecoin will allow sending wDoge, an Ethereum compatible wrapped token, to the Ethereum network. Thus, Doge users will have access to projects operating on the Ethereum network and NFT markets. While the developers mentioned that WBTC's model, which is currently the bridge with the highest locked total value, was used in the construction of the bridge, he reminded that this bridge has not been subject to a security breach so far.

The developers also emphasized that the need for such a bridge is due to limitations in the Dogecoin scripting language, while emphasizing that it is difficult to host many decentralized protocols due to this issue. On the other hand, during the development of the Dogecoin - Ethereum bridge, besides Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin, Solidity lead developer Chriseth and Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Web3 cloud engineer Ross Nicoll also contributed. The team now expects the bridge to be operational before the end of 2022.

Apart from this hot development regarding Dogecoin, the DOGE community has witnessed some exciting developments recently. Recently, Dogecoin developers installed the C library called LibDogecoin. Thanks to this library, it was considered an important development as developers can create Dogecoin integrated products on various platforms. Recent developments have also increased the interest of large investors in DOGE. Crypto analytics firm Santiment noted last week that high-volume transactions are increasing on the Dogecoin network.

Dogecoin has bounced back its recent gains, returning to the demand zone of $0.065-$0.07 with the sell-off after seeing a rapid rise to $0.09 last week.
