August is over already? Here is the Moonbeam update!

Moonbeam Routed Liquidity is LIVE
Moonbeam introduced the MRL feature to give users a one-click option for moving liquidity in and around Polkadot via XCM and Wormhole — and it has been popular! After only one week live, already over 1,000,000 USD had flowed through MRL to and from HydraDX, the first parachain to integrate and enable the feature. More to come!
