Are funds safe at Ronin Bridge?
On Saturday, Axie Infinity announced that it has detected some bugs on the Ronin Bridge. The Axie Infinity team says they encountered an unknown issue that caused some funds to get stuck during transfers on the Ethereum Blockchain. The Axie Infinity team claims the funds were not lost, but are currently stuck due to a recurring issue after the bridge reopened. Part of the announcement includes:
We have identified an issue with the bridge that causes some deposits from the Ethereum blockchain to become stuck. As a result, the funds are not delivered to your Ronin wallet but are not lost.

However, Ronin Network warned in a recent blog post that funds sent directly to Ronin Bridge’s contract addresses will be permanently lost. Meanwhile, Ronin (RON) price is trading slightly volatile around 1%.
Ronin Bridge, altcoin project encounters problems after release
Axie Infinity shared with the community the issues that occurred at Ronin Bridge on July 2. He tweeted about recurring issues causing some funds to get stuck during transfers from Ethereum. Now the team says it has identified problems. The Axie Infinity team is currently working with validators to resolve the issue. An update is on the way for the bridge, which will likely be available by July 10. Funds are expected to remain on hold until the update is released.
Axie Infinity claims the issue has only occurred twice since the Ronin Bridge reopened. However, it is difficult to predict whether such problems will arise in the future. Also, the platform says that after the update, the stuck funds will be sent to the designated Ronin wallet.
After Axie Infinity launched Land staking on July 1, players had the opportunity to earn AXS through staking. In fact, 13,005 out of 16,794 plots have already been linked to stake pools.
