There’s been so much news once again this month what with development, exciting new partnerships, great community adoption and growth plus a number of special airdrops for Umbrian holders. However, we’ll start with our Fantom Bridge…

Cheapest Fantom Cross-chain Bridge

Our followers have been aware of its existence for some time, but March was when we unveiled the cheapest Ethereum ↔️ Fantom bridge on the market to the wider world 🎉

Narni Bridge: Fantom to Ethereum — cost: $6.66

Multichain Bridge: Fantom to Ethereum — cost: $66.74

Narni Bridge: Ethereum to Fantom — cost: $6.57

Multichain Bridge — Ethereum to Fantom — cost: $9.29

We’ve also created a simple how-to-guide for bridging Ethereum to Fantom using the Narni bridge.


We’ve partnered with more great projects on Polygon, AVAX and Fantom. You can read all about the latest ones we’ve officially announced via newswires and press outreach below.

Head5 — deadmau5 x Smearballs

For those into electronic music, deadmau5 won’t need any introduction. We partnered with head5, the Collectible NFT Series, which is a collab between deadmau5 and visual artist Smearballs. The collection resides on the Polygon network so Narni’s on hand to bring those bridging costs down and open up the ‘mau5verse’ to a wider audience.

Find out all about the project below 👇🏻

We’ve subsequently partnered with AvaDice, Ice Bear Society, Kool Kids of Fantom, Hedge Fund Hyenas, BunnyBats and CryptoCorn. Watch out for the official announcements.

Free NFT airdrop drops for Umbrian holders

On March 9th our ‘Juiced’ Umbrian NFT holders were airdropped a MicroBuddy NFT each from our partner.

Our partners BetNFT gave away whitelist spots to the first 10 Umbrian holders to respond to our flash competition on Discord.

Our partner Cyborg Wolves announced its extension collection — The Cyborg Werewolves (which are minting now) — and gave away NFTs to three Umbrian holders picked at random.

Watch Out For Mike presented Ape World Order (AWO) — Series 1. Five lucky Umbrian holders received 1 AWO NFT each 🎉

Schiller’s Umbria catch up

Schiller gives the lowdown on Umbria’s Q1 activity including the addition of the Fantom Bridge.

He also explains how he’s staking $UMBR on the Ethereum Mainnet side of the Narni bridge to receive USDT, USDC, Matic and more tokens.

“Their token price is heavily correlated to that of Ethereum. Something to keep an eye on as you’re navigating this crazy world!”

Twitter Space

It was good to catch up and hear the latest from a number of our partner projects. There was some great discussion about developments in the NFT space, security (following the Ronin hack), the pursuit of blockchain agnosticism and earning fees from staking on the Narni bridge.

Let us know on our socials what you’d like our next Twitter Space to focus on.
