Umbria Aurora — April Digest

We thought March was busy… but April has seen things really heating up! Here’s a roundup of just some of what’s been happening over the last month.

Second airdrop snapshot

We took a snapshot of UMBR and UMBR-ETH LP holders (as well as those staked in the Umbria Farm) on April 15th. They’ll be receiving their UMBR rewards on May 15th.

Mapped on Polygon

This was a real biggie. Mapping on Polygon opens the door for our development on Layer 2. It unlocks low transaction fees, fast block times and other innovations of Polygon and paves the way for the Umbria DEX.

The next few months are going to be filled with exciting innovation and development. We can’t wait. Find out more here: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/umbria-token-fully-compatible-with-polygons-layer-2-chain-301276908.html

… and here is the first transaction of UMBR from Ethereum to Polygon chain:

Umbria farming extended for another 200,000 blocks

Come and spend a bit more time on the farm! Due to the success of the Umbria Farm and recent increase in our liquidity, we decided to extend farming for 200,000 (50,000 UMBR). After that period ends, we will move farming to Polygon chain.

Development HQ

We tested launching a DEX on Polygon chain, which is a modified version of SushiSwap with extra governance features. The transaction fees were less than $0.001 for a swap. 🎉 🔥

This is the first Mainnet Polygon liquidity add on our new Umbria DEX on the Polygon chain. The website is only available locally, but all the functionality on our Layer 2 DEX is there and working as is the Polygon liquidity providing and farm.

The Umbria.Exchange URL has also been secured so it’s all systems go.

Lead developers Barney and Oscar discussed their crypto journey and the projects they’ve created with Sifted.
