Across the Cryptoverse #34 - When More Chains? .... and Fantasy Football

By PVM | SuperUMAns | 4 Dec 2023


Across is the bridge that Ethereum deserves, being fast and financially efficient. It got even better after zkSync and Base were added as bridging options, bringing Across on the top of the hyper-competitive cross-chain landscape! The number one question we all have is .... "𝐖𝐞𝐧 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬?"

Across prioritizes route optimization for maximum capital efficiency 𝑏𝑒𝑓𝑜𝑟𝑒 adding route support. Has this optimization focus vs. new chain deployment helped Across?  The numbers are speaking! Across went live with zkSync routes and support in August, and since then bridged nearly $800 million in token value to and from the chain! 

Bridge optimization pay off on the zkSync route, as Across is at least 83% cheaper than the nearest zkSync bridge competitor. Across has $0.44 vs $2.61 in median overall bridge fees

Saying it again for the people in the back! The same bridge optimization paid off on Base, with over $150 million in volume in the first 60 days. How do we know optimization work paid off? Across is 𝑟𝑖𝑑𝑖𝑐𝑢𝑙𝑜𝑢𝑠𝑙𝑦 fast compared to its competition... median overall fill time at 3 seconds vs. 62+ seconds for the other guys!  

Quality vs. quantity has proven it's worth the wait! When Across is building... quality is guaranteed!  The fastest... but better! And now to answer the question... wen more chains? Soon, optimization mode in progress...

Until new chains are added, more cryptocurrencies are being introduced as bridging assets. We are proud to announce that $SNX bridging is live on Across! You can now send your Synthetix assets between Ethereum Mainnet and Optimism at the fastest speeds and lowest fees! No-brainer!

Join the Across Discord for the latest news in the Cryptoverse, and to be up to date with the latest events and competitions. A monthly budget of $500 are allocated for fun activities, such as Gartic, word search, quizzes, poker and many more. Get the "party animal" role to receive notification of upcoming events, and get your ACX holdings grow! 

What about neon green profile pictures? That's my own creation, done one demand for the Across Committee members and active rangers. Who knows... maybe you will get one! Do you know that the pfps are also minted as NFTs on zkSync?

If Across bosses in the bridging sector, I am bossing in the activity world. I hope you like Fantasy Football ... because the Across rangers are having a league! You are still early, and more then welcome to join. Ask me for the link on Discord and will share it with you! 

We also have prizes for this long season of the Premier League, and 600 ACX for the top five managers. The winner will be rewarded with 230 ACX, the runner-up with 150 ACX, and the third place with 100 ACX tokens. The forth and fifth place will receive 60 ACX each and a standing ovation. 

The competition kicked of in the summer, and we already have a hot battle at the top! It's hard to get in the upper half of the leaderboard, and I am currently 10th in the league. The Fantasy Football experts are in the lead, with TengoLoTodo, Japi and GR on the top spots. There are some underdogs chasing them up, and the game is on!

Why am I struggling? Because I always do bad choices with my starting line-up! Played Son as a captain, when Halaand is by far the most consistent scorer in the world. Erling should be captain by default and managers to be punished if they want to change it! Again some bad choices in defense and up-front, leaving both Luton lads on the bench... and they delivered!

What about Champions League? Fancy another fantasy football league? Less participants and higher chances to win a medal! The prize pool for this event is 200 ACX, with the winner claiming half of the pot. I am leading the pack, but there are so many rounds to go! The second place will receive 60 ACX, while the third place will be rewarded with the remaining 40 ACX.

How it's going? Doing a bit better here, sitting on the third place! The same Special Ones are leading the pack, but this time Japi swapped places with TengoLoTodo. I am only 23 points away, and a good captain can reduce the gap.

Steve and Mani are chasing but  they are far from the top three! Victor, Creddies and Clover must improve their game to catch up with those flying high. It's a long season and will be entertaining for sure!

Making a top team for the Champions League fantasy football is easy, as all the big names are on the scene! Spend the money and get all the stars from Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona. If you have some leftovers, you can fill up your team with underdogs from teams like Manchester United or Arsenal.

Bad choices again! Why Luis Alberto and not Haaland or Bellingham? I thought that Lazio will trash Celtic (they did!) and my boy will score or assist in this game. I must learn to play save and go with the statistics. Go with the big names and you will not be disappointed. 

Another Lazio player, Romagnoli had zero contribution as he didn't played! Bad choices! At least Gvardiol and Cancelo did well and added 19 points to the 57 I accumulated this round! Transfers done and Bellingham set as the captain!
