The need for scalable, low-cost Etheruem alternatives seems to be one of the factors driving the TOMO price up.

On January 7, the team released an update for the TomoIssuer and TomoBridge platforms. The upgrade allows any user to issue an encapsulated ERC-20 token and list it on TomoBridge as a TRC-21 token.

With fees on the Ethereum network rising again, developers and traders can choose to use TomoBridge to trade ERC-20 tokens more efficiently than they could on the Ethereum network.

Recently, TomoChain also unveiled the Zorro version which contains an upgrade to its Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and the current version of Solidity. With this upgrade, developers can “easily deploy code from other EVM chains to TomoChain with minimal customization.”

Together, the version of Zorro, TomoIssuer and TomoBridge have the potential to capture some of the liquidity and transactions of the Ethereum-dominated DeFi space while helping to reduce the congestion and high fees that currently plague the Etheruem network.
