    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
