There have been some exciting developments in the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem lately. To keep followers informed, Altcoin Buzz takes a look back at the most important ones.
During the first week of October, Umbrella Network was released on Ethereum with a cross-chain bridge to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) platform. Also, there was a record-breaking NFT sale on the BSC platform. Let’s take a closer look at these developments and other Binance Smart Chain updates.
1 – Umbrella Network Launched on Ethereum With Cross-Chain Bridge to BSC
Umbrella Network, a decentralized oracle system, was released on Ethereum during the week. This development saw the implementation of a cross-chain bridge between Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
The emphasis for the bridge was on the need to move tokens and crypto-assets across both platforms. Besides, the bridge will make it possible for users to farm and stake crypto tokens on both systems.
At the moment, Umbrella has more than 1,200 data pairs on Ethereum. Thus, making it possible for users to “integrate data from spot cryptocurrency, crypto derivatives, and traditional financial markets.” Umbrella also have plans to carry out cross-chain integrations with other platforms, such as Avalanche, Solana, Polygon, and Cardano.
Sam Kim, Umbrella’s founding partner. also commented, saying, “We will now be able to serve the needs of the largest DeFi community with our decentralized oracles, and look to address real challenges the community faces when it comes to the high cost, low availability of data offerings in the ecosystem today.”
2 – Record-Breaking NFT Sale on Binance Smart Chain (BSC)
During the week, ApeSwap.Finance, a decentralized exchange on Binance Smart Chain, revealed the sale of “Colossal Ape,” which is arguably the highest NFT sale on the BSC ecosystem.
The NFT was sold to the winning bidder, who went away with the NFT after placing a bid of 326.969 $BNB (which is equivalent to $138k).
Is this the most expensive #NFT ever sold on #BinanceSmartChain? 🤔
