Community Updates

- Migration of the Marlin Network from Ethereum to Arbitrum

Migrating the Marlin network from Ethereum to Arbitrum

💯 This will allow for increased participation in Marlin's network, with the ecosystem being able to leverage Arbitrum's reduced gas fees while maintaining Ethereum's security.


👀 Existing users & operators participating in the Marlin network by staking and running clusters can transfer their stashes over via the Arbitrum bridge. 

✅ Token holders can also transfer their POND/MPond from the Ethereum network to Arbitrum.

🌊 The migration will be done in phases with staking completely moving to Arbitrum by 10th Jan 2022 with the Marlin Bridge & Governance going live approx a month later.

 👍 Existing users will continue to earn rewards on the Ethereum network until staking goes live on Arbitrum.

🤓 Cluster operators will need to register on the Arbitrum staking portal before staking goes live in order to continue receiving tickets and rewards.

👋 Reach out to us on Discord ( in case you have queries/require assistance.
