Welcome back to Gravity Bridge 🌌 Today’s update will cover the Mercury v2 upgrade, G-Bridge’s new Kinesis Labs integration, trading stablecoins on Osmosis, and updates from the community.

Gravity’s Youtube channel offers new bridge users short tutorials for sending Gravitons to Osmosis and using bridged ERC20 stablecoins on Cosmos.

As an example stableswap transaction, the video below walks viewers through trading gUSDC on Osmosis Frontier and bridging back to ERC20 tokens:

A recent governance proposal suggests that Gravity Bridge spearhead the formation of the NFT ICS721 working group by bringing together reps from various NFT projects on Cosmos to discuss and relay the ICS721 standard.It is also proposed that a 3 of 5 multisig be used and assigned a 500,000 GRAV budget, with the multisig being composed at least one member of both the Stargaze team and the Gravity team.
