What is the current cost to move an NFT from the xDai Chain to the Ethereum Mainnet?

I am comparing the cost to create an NFT in Ripple, and in xDai.

I am aware that the cost is very low if the data is kept on the xDai Chain. However, my project requires that the end result (the final NFT) is on the mainnet, so it can be viewed on etherscan.

  1. What is the current cost to move an NFT from the xDai Chain to the Ethereum Mainnet?

  2. With xDai, can I do all the same processes that I currently do with web3 and infura on the mainnet?

  3. To use xDAI, what changes will I need to make to my javascript (which interacts with web3 and infura)?

  4. To view xDAI transactions, is there a tool similar to etherscan?

  5. Does xDAI have a devnet?

BlockScout solves all of your issues. See here:

You can select xDaiChain, POA Core, Sokol Test Net, and others. Take a look!

In order to estimate costs you can look at a Universal NFT bridge we setup recently: NFT OmniBridge extension - TokenBridge. Please note that it is in BETA.

Regarding dev resources, please start reading from this page of the xDai chain documentation: Developer Resources & Tools - xDai STAKE.
