An Arbitrary Message Bridge (AMB) between the Kovan Testnet and the POA Sokol Testnet allows Dapps developers to test cross-chain applications.

The deployed mediator contracts do not require a set of oracles to be setup, allowing an application to rapidly test functionality without spending resources on entire infrastructure setup.
The mediator contracts rely on the following information about the Kovan-Sokol Arbitrary Message Bridge:
