Umbria Aurora — July digest

We started the month hooking up with our favourite Twitcher Steven Schill AKA The Schiller to talk all things Narni Cross-Chain Bridge and answer all your questions. As always, a great experience.

Check out the interview below and if you want to read up all about it go check out our earlier post.

Narni test results

On the subject of Narni, we released some amazing test results.

For moving USDT from the Ethereum network to the Polygon network it took an average of 47 seconds and cost just $2.80; Polygon to Ethereum took an average of two minutes 12 seconds and cost $5.62. This is significantly faster and cheaper than the Polygon web wallet bridge, which can cost upwards of $200 and take several hours for a transaction to complete.
