LONDON, Nov. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ether (ETH), the native cryptocurrency for the Ethereum Network, can be transferred exceptionally quickly and cheaply cross-chain using Umbria’s Narni Bridge – bridge.umbria.network.
The world’s second-largest digital currency by market cap can typically be transferred from the Ethereum blockchain to the Polygon blockchain in less than four minutes, and often at a cost of just $4–$9. This is a fraction of the gas price of other solutions and has led to Narni being adopted by many in the NFT community who had previously been experiencing exorbitant fees.
Users of Umbria’s cross-chain liquidity bridge can also earn a passive income from their $ETH through Narni’s ‘pool and earn’ – https://bridge.umbria.network/pool/ This feature enables participants to lend their assets to the bridge, that is become liquidity providers (LPs), to earn interest. LPs receive fees when other users bridge ETH between networks. There is no impermanent loss, as experienced with most other platforms, as only one asset is provided as opposed to a liquidity pair.
“As a result of the integration of Polygon on the OpenSea platform there’s been an explosion in the number of NFT projects being built on Polygon. This means there’s a massive demand for bridging ETH to the Polygon Network (that is exchanging ETH for WETH) in this space alone,” said Barney Chambers, Co-lead developer of Umbria Network. “It isn’t just the cheap and fast bridging that has got the community excited, the APY for lending the asset is also very attractive. We currently have almost $1.5 million TVL in Ethereum alone on the bridge.”
