Since the main Ethereum blockchain is slow and expensive, alternative blockchains and L2 solutions have been created that speed up and reduce the cost of working with DeFi.

UNO is a cross-chain application that will work with both the main Ethereum blockchain and L2 solutions.

At the current stage of the protocol development, public version of UNO supports Pilygon blockchain only. Money transfer to Polygon can be performed by several ways, the use of Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network is the most profitable of them.
