[Cronos News July'22] Cronos Builder Newsletter
On June 28th, 2022, we launched the Cronos Gravity Bridge on the “Pioneer 11” Testnet, a cross-chain communication protocol that allows the transfer of digital assets between Ethereum’s Goerli testnet and a dedicated Cronos testnet.
Cronos Gravity Bridge is poised to be positioned as the canonical decentralised bridge between Cronos and Ethereum mainnet. It will enable the seamless transfer of digital assets between the Ethereum and Cosmos ecosystems. Therefore it is important that, as a community, we harden the technology and users feel safe when bridging tokens between Ethereum and Cronos Chain.
In addition to engaging with industry-leading cybersecurity audit firms, we are announcing the Cronos Gravity Bridge Testnet Bug Bounty Program - sponsored by Cronos Labs with a bounty up to USD 200,000. Join the bounty hunt today!
