Umbria Aurora — October Digest
As well as a lot of dev work this month for implementing Binance Smart Chain on the Narni bridge, we’ve been focusing on partnering and working with different projects to introduce their communities to Umbria Network and the world of fast and cheap bridging 🎉
First up for the month, we announced our partnership with Aavegotchi. Umbria now supports the cross-chain migration of Aavegotchi’s GHST token, and we’re the cheapest and fastest way to transfer GHST from Ethereum to Polygon and back again.
GHST tokens are used to buy DeFi-powered ‘Gotchi’ avatars — playable NFTs — and other goods in the popular Aavegotchi game, which is integrated into the AAVE DeFi platform. Holders of the token can also earn a nice APY on their asset with Narni’s Pool and Earn.
