The Rainbow Bridge Is Back!
The bridge has been reactivated after the Ethereum Merge.
As previously announced in our article about "The Merge", the Rainbow Bridge had to be paused for security related reasons.
We bring a good news this morning, as bridging from/to Ethereum, NEAR, and Aurora was reactivated on the Rainbow Bridge App, after a week of monitoring and performing security audits.
You can now start bridging as you were doing it before* on the Rainbow Bridge app!
*Please note that due to Ethereum's migration to PoS consensus and its increased time to block finality, the bridging time for transactions from Ethereum has been increased to ~20 mins. Bridging time between NEAR and Aurora remains the same.
A quick note for the ones running watchdogs.
Please update the address of
NearOnEthClient to "0x3FEFc5A4B1c02f21cBc8D3613643ba0635b9a873" to keep on contributing to the security of the bridge.
