We’re excited to announce the testnet beta launch of Bridge, which enables NFTs to beam across EVM blockchains with complete data integrity. This is the second of many milestones in the development of Holograph Protocol.
Bridge enables you to:
We strive to make beaming NFTs as easy as possible. That said, the current state of the app may be a bit confusing. Some important caveats to be aware of:
To beam an NFT from Chain A to Chain B, the collection must be deployed on Chain B. In other words, if you try to beam an NFT to a network where the collection is NOT deployed, it won’t work. To manage this, we’ve implemented an omnichain collection propagator, which automatically deploys your collection to all supported networks. When deploying collections, we ask for your patience in waiting for the propagator to complete before beaming NFTs.
Due to technical factors (e.g., block times, network congestion, gas fees), the time it takes to beam an NFT will vary from network to network.
Testnet RPC URLs are notoriously prone to error. Here’s a list of recommended RPCs (Rinkeby is not included as it comes by default on M*taMask & typically works as expected) 👇

To know if a beam is successful, go to the Collection Details and refresh the screen until the destination network is displayed on the NFT card component.
We’ll spend the next several weeks testing Bridge and gathering feedback from our community. Over this time we’ll enhance Bridge with additional features that will enable you to:
Holograph’s mission is to enable NFT interoperability across the entire web3 ecosystem. If you’re looking to beam NFTs, give Holograph a try and let us know what you think!
