Strategic move to embrace Solana, bridging $EPIKO Tokens to the Solana blockchain and expanding the gaming ecosystem to benefit both Epiko and Solana communities.

We are embarking on a new journey beyond the Ethereum blockchain. This strategic move involves embracing the power of Solana, a high-performance blockchain network known for its lightning-fast transaction speed, low fees, and scalability, supporting Programs (Smart Contracts) and decentralized applications with more than 400 dApps currently running on its network. By expanding to Solana, we aim to create a more robust and accessible gaming ecosystem, leveraging the strengths of both platforms to deliver unparalleled experiences to users worldwide.

Solana has gained widespread recognition and now is one of the top cryptocurrencies by market capital. Solana offers developers a robust and flexible infrastructure to build innovative solutions across various industries, including DeFi, NFT, Web3 Gaming, DAOs and many more. With its innovative consensus mechanism and growing ecosystem of projects, Solana is poised to play a significant role in shaping the future of blockchain technology and driving mass adoption of decentralized applications.

SPL Program: Bridging $EPIKO Token

The Solana Program Library (SPL) provides a robust framework for creating and managing both fungible and non-fungible tokens on the Solana blockchain. These tokens can be utilized within the Solan ecosystem, serving various purposes such as payments, governance, and rewards.

Solana SPL tokens offer enhanced flexibility and intricate functionality compared to Ethereum’s ERC-20 Standard tokens. Meticulously designed for accessibility and user-friendliness, they facilitate faster and more efficient token transfers and interactions through simplified Programs (Smart Contract) functionality and an intuitive token interface tailored for developers.

$EPIKO Tokens are originally hosted on the Ethereum blockchain using the ERC-20 token standard, a widely adopted protocol for token creation on Ethereum. Bridging $EPIKO (ERC-20) to SPL involves creating a pool of $EPIKO tokens on the Solana blockchain. These bridged tokens adhere to the Solana Program Library (SPL) standard, which functions similarly to ERC-20 on Ethereum.

A bridging token is not a distinct token itself but rather represents a token on one blockchain while existing on another. For instance, if you possess a dollar on the Ethereum blockchain, you cannot directly utilize it on the Solana blockchain. However, through the bridging process, a new token (referred to as a “bridged dollar”) is created on Solana to represent the original dollar on Ethereum. This bridged dollar functions as a duplicate of the original dollar, enabling its usage within the Solana ecosystem.

Getting Our Applications on Solana dApp Store

But our journey doesn’t stop at bridging tokens. We’re also working to make our gaming applications like Epiko Regal available on Solana’s decentralized applications (dApps) ecosystem. This means that Solana users will soon have access to a whole new world of gaming to explore.

Solana chain Integration on Epiko Marketplace

As part of our multichain strategy, we’re thrilled to announce that the Solana chain will be integrated into the Epiko NFT marketplace. This means that users will also have the opportunity to buy, sell, and trade NFTs seamlessly across Ethereum, BOBA, Polygon, zkEVM, BNB, and soon on the Solana network. This multichain integration ensures unprecedented liquidity and accessibility for NFT enthusiasts within the Epiko community.

Partnerships with Solana Projects

This opens up new opportunities for collaboration and engagement with other projects within the Solana ecosystem. These collaborations will enable us to tap into Solana’s thriving community, driving innovation and growth while creating unparalleled value for our users. By working together with Solana projects, we can push the boundaries of what’s possible in the decentralized gaming space.

Creating an Ecosystem for the Solana Community

Our move to Solana isn’t just about us — it’s about embracing and enriching the vibrant Solana community as a whole. We’re committed to building a thriving ecosystem that benefits both Epiko and Solana users alike. From decentralized applications (dApps) to decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, our goal is to foster innovation, collaboration, and growth within the Solana ecosystem.

Implications for Epiko and Solana Communities

Bridging of $EPIKO Token from Ethereum to Solana holds several implications for both the Epiko and Solana communities:

For the Epiko Community:

  • Wider Adoption and Increased Visibility: By making $EPIKO tokens available on Solana, Epiko gains exposure to a new audience and partnerships within the Solana ecosystem. This can significantly increase awareness and potentially lead to wider adoption of $EPIKO, benefiting the entire Epiko community.
  • Enhanced Liquidity: Bridging unlocks a larger pool of potential buyers and sellers for $EPIKO tokens. With $EPIKO circulating on both Ethereum and Solana, users have greater flexibility in trading and swapping their tokens. This increased liquidity can contribute to a more stable token price for $EPIKO holders.
  • Integration with DeFi Solutions: The bridge opens doors for Epiko to integrate with innovative DeFi (decentralized finance) protocols and services built on Solana. This could allow Epiko users to explore new possibilities like staking their bridged $EPIKO tokens to earn additional rewards within the Solana ecosystem.

For the Solana Community:

  • Access to a Thriving Ecosystem: The arrival of Epiko introduces the Solana community to a well-established project with a passionate user base. This can attract new users and developers to the Solana ecosystem, fostering further growth and innovation.
  • Enhanced Utility for SOL: The need to bridge $EPIKO tokens might incentivize Solana users to hold SOL tokens, the native currency of the Solana blockchain. This can potentially increase demand for SOL and contribute to its overall value.
  • Exposure to Advanced Gaming Applications: Solana users gain access to the potential of Epiko’s ultimate gaming ecosystem. This can enrich the Solana ecosystem by introducing new experiences and attracting a wider range of users interested in play-to-earn gaming and other decentralized entertainment features.


Epiko is expanding its horizons beyond the Ethereum blockchain by embracing Solana, a high-performance blockchain network known for its speed, low fees, and scalability. This move aims to create a robust gaming ecosystem, leveraging Solana’s strengths. Bridging $EPIKO tokens from Ethereum to Solana and integrating Epiko applications into Solana’s dApps ecosystem are key steps. Multichain integration on the Epiko NFT marketplace and partnerships with Solana projects further enhance the ecosystem. For Epiko and Solana communities, this means wider adoption, enhanced liquidity, access to a thriving ecosystem, and exposure to advanced gaming applications.
