Milkomeda, a Cardano blockchain contributor, has gained massive exposure courtesy of its adoption by Microsoft for the startup support program.
Milkomeda, a layer 2 protocol (rollups) that delivers Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) capabilities to non-EVM blockchains, has been adopted by DC Spark, a beneficiary of the Microsoft startup support program tagged “Microsoft for Startups”.
“Thrilled to announce the JP branch of dcSpark has been approved for Microsoft for Startups. We hope this cooperation will help spread the latest blockchain R&D to Japan. Notably, we’ll use their mentoring & tech expertise to simplify the multichain dev experience through Milkomeda,” DC Spark wrote.

The Microsoft for Startups program is a Microsoft initiative designed to help startups grow faster by granting them access to innovative technology solutions and resources.
DC Spark Japan, which is a beneficiary of the latest edition of the Microsoft for Startup scheme, later announced its adoption of Milkomeda. The product-based DLT company seeks to leverage Milkomeda’s cutting-edge technology to simplify the multichain development experience.
“We are pleased to partner with Microsoft to promote advanced blockchain research and development in Japan. We will also strive to improve security by utilizing the mentor system and technical support. I will,” Director Sebastian Guimo said.
More so, Milkomeda plans to build an advanced system, such as storing chain index data on Azure following this development.
With its trusted EVM technology, Milkomeda greatly contributed to the Charles Hoskinson-founded blockchain project when it successfully rolled out a sidechain in March. The launch of Milkomeda C1 enabled Ethereum (ETH) decentralized applications (dApps) to be deployed in the Cardano (ADA) ecosystem.
