Across The Cryptoverse #16 - St. Patrick's Day Cooking Challenge Bonanza

By PVM | SuperUMAns | 8 Apr 2023

Across is the top crypto crypto bridge for Ethereum mainnet and layer-2.  Across is fast and financially efficient, offering the best fees for transfers to and from Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum and Optimism, being secured by the UMA’s optimistic oracle. 

The competitive relayer landscape and a no-slippage fee model are some of Across top attributes, and the $ACX enhanced the ecosystem. But above all the technical facts, Across was a vibrant and entertaining community! 

We shared Across Love for Valentine's Day, ape into Arbitrum and 17th of March was another opportunity to have fun and engage the community. I wanted to celebrate St.Partick Day with an Across themed cooking competition! The participants had to use the #IrishAcross tag when sharing on Twitter.


Saint Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and Bishop in Ireland, converting the pagan Irish to Christianity. Today's Saint Patrick's Day celebrations developed among the Irish diaspora, especially in North America, involving public parades and festivals, Irish traditional music sessions, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.

Because the Irish green matched the Across colors, I challenge the community members to show-off their cooking skills and integrate the Across vision or logo into the St.Partick's festive spirit. Fancy cocktails and posh coffees were eligible for the competition. Clayton was right ... I do come up with some of the most hilarious, real-world-asset marketing campaigns for UMA's projects! 


Challenge accepted, then taken above and beyond! I was expecting good plates but some of the participants went beyond any expectation. Check all entries in this Twitter Thread and be amazed by the feast prepared by Deadcoin. We have Baileys', Guinness, leeks, pork, lot of green ... a feast for kings! 


Every time I checked Twitter, I got hungry! All I could see was a plethora of amazing food, colorful ingredients and party vibes. Have a look at those pancakes!!!!! Do you fancy some curly fries or a bowl of Irish stew?


VOX POPULI, VOX DEI! The community voted for their favorite dishes and Emily's fish and chips was the victor. Infinity cooking bonanza and Amanda's green pancakes were one hart behind, and Deadcoin's Irish feast claiming the 3rd place! 


Everyone is a winner with Across, as all the participants received $ACX for their effort. You cook, you eat, you bridge ... you learn! However, you could stake and earn! Across single staking pools are offering attractive APY, and a multiplier that improves on a daily basis!  


No pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but we had POAPs! The luck of the Irish and the bridge that Ethereum deserves were minted on blockchain by the cooking challenge participants! 


Why Across Protocol?

Money-efficiency and speed! My UMA transfer from Polygon to Ethereum Mainnet was completed in 2 seconds! The security is enhanced by the competitive relayer landscape and the no-slippage fee model make bridging cheaper for all! 


The $ACX staking implemented accelerating distribution, and the earning multiplier will increases as time passes, helping loyal holders to earn at higher rates then DeFi mercenaries.  

Across Protocol was the first protocol to implement reward locking, incentivizing the ETH, USDC, DAI, WBTC and ACX pools.  The Across reward locking programming multiplier starts at 1 on day zero and will grow linearly to a maximum of 3 when rewards are left unclaimed for 100 days.

The long wait has ended now,

100 days gone quick.. and WOW!

The multiplier was fresh and new,

Staking $ACX made it grew.

AcrossProtocol takes no rest,

With 3x boost I feel the best!
