Umbria Aurora — January Digest

Umbria Network
6 min readFeb 3, 2022


We’ve been full steam ahead with our roadmap and in January we added both Binance Smart Chain and Avalanche bridges.

Both offer transaction costs at around an 80–90% discount compared to the official bridges of BSC and Avalanche with average cost being $4-$9.

You can check them out here with these quick links:

The Bridge Widget

We partnered with The Red Village (TRV) — the first dark-fantasy Play-to-Earn multiplayer NFT game on the Polygon network — to create a seamless gaming experience for their players when converting their ETH to WETH. Our bridge widget enables them to do this faster, and approximately 90% cheaper than with other solutions.

We worked closely with TRV to help design a custom, rebranded bridge for its platform whereby players remain within the game’s ecosystem and can easily migrate their assets to the correct chain to enjoy a superior, frictionless user experience. A great premier test case for the widget 👇🏻

📣 We’re extending the functionality of our Bridge Widget to include a fiat on-ramp so people can use a credit card to buy crypto and get straight to their destination network rather than having to have assets in a separate wallet and switching between different interfaces.


Talking of partnerships, it’s been another busy month on that score. In addition to The Red Village, January saw us partner with a number of other NFT and Polygon projects. We also officially unveiled our ‘Partnership Endeavour’ in our road map.

All of the below projects endorse the Narni cross-chain liquidity bridge and actively promote to their communities to help them save money when bridging between Ethereum and Polygon.

We’ve also partnered with Polygon Alliance, a platform for the Polygon community to come together to network, collaborate, learn and grow with the aim of making Polygon the number one destination for NFTs and DeFi.

They’re recommending us to projects, and will be integrating the Narni bridge widget soon.

We’d love to reach out to BSC projects. If you know of any that would benefit from our BSC bridge then please get them to fill out our Partnership Contact Request form:

On the whale radar!
