Liquidity providers can earn APY on $GHST with the Narni Bridge

Umbria Network’s Narni Bridge now supports the cross-chain migration of Aavegotchi’s GHST token between the Ethereum and Polygon networks.

GHST tokens are used to buy DeFi-powered ‘Gotchi’ avatars – playable NFTs – and other goods in the popular Aavegotchi game, which is integrated into the AAVE DeFi platform. With the Narni Bridge, GHST can be transferred for less than half the price and 10 times faster than is possible with the current bridging solution used for Aavegotchi.

Another key benefit for GHST holders is they can earn APY by lending their asset to the Narni Bridge in a system called pooling – https://bridge.umbria.network/pool. In return for ‘staking’ in the pool, liquidity providers earn a 0.2% fee whenever other users bridge the GHST token between networks. The pool pays the GHST token to liquidity providers (with no impermanent loss) in a scenario similar to a traditional farm. Their rewards are auto-harvested every five minutes and there is no lock-up period meaning tokens can be un-staked at any time. The APY for current GHST liquidity providers has been up to 255%.

There are extra earnings on offer for those who have staked UMBR (Umbria’s native governance token) in the bridge. These liquidity providers receive their share of 0.3% of all fees generated across all assets on the bridge – including GHST – for the network to which they provided the UMBR liquidity. This affords the opportunity to generate passive income on all tokens available on Narni. These rewards are added to the staking balance of each token on the respective network.

“The intersection of DeFi, gaming and NFTs is an exciting and growing area. It creates yet more demand and opportunity for the Narni Bridge and the ultra-fast and cheap bridging it provides,” said Oscar Chambers, co-lead developer at Umbria Network. “We’ve already seen major adoption from NFT communities such as Zed Run and we’re now delighted to be working with Aavegotchi to deliver a superior user experience to their community.”

“The timing of this couldn’t be better. Umbria’s solution represents a huge improvement for bridging GHST at a time when we are focusing a lot of energy on also making our Aavegotchi NFTs multichain,” says Aavegotchi summoner Jesse Johnson.
