Acala this month is one of the brightest Polkadot stars. Several historic events have taken place this week:

1) transferred Plasm’s token cross-chain using XCMP (cross-chain message passing) functionality.
2) transferred HydraDX token cross-chain using XCMP (cross-chain message passing) functionality.

The first-ever parachain transaction on Rococo is a very important milestone for the ecosystem, and we congratulate the Plasm and Acala teams!
Sota from Plasm couldn’t hide his emotions after making significant progress and we’re happy to see it as well.

You have only 2 types of projects in crypto:
1. those pushing forward open source innovations
2. those pushing only marketing and promises to their communities

Now that we have completed a cross-chain token transfer, we are one step closer to Kusama parachains starting to go live.
