Bridging NFTs to L2 🌉

Dear Bankless Nation,

Quix, the first NFT marketplace on the Optimism L2, opened up the Optimism NFT Bridge this week.

The idea? Now you have the ability to bridge over and trade your Ethereum L1 NFTs on Optimism, where transaction costs are drastically lower than on mainnet.

The NFT bridging scene is super early right now, so we’re still a ways off from seeing a lot of activity from migrating over. But in my mind, this is roundabouts the start of a new era for NFTs so keep your eyes on the bridges over the next couple of years!

In the meantime have a great weekend everyone! And as always thanks kindly for reading ✌️
