What we do

Moonbeam accelerates web3 integration through solutions that remove friction and improve user experience. We enable developers to efficiently build decentralized applications that operate seamlessly across diverse blockchain networks.

Our mission is to support innovations that remove friction, onboard more users, and deliver real-world value. We achieve this by leveraging a range of technologies, including cross-chain solutions like XCM, xc20, MRL, and XCM SDK. Moonbeam also integrates with leading cross-chain protocols, including Axelar, Wormhole, LayerZero, and Glacis, making Moonbeam the ideal platform for building future-proof decentralized applications.

How we got here

Moonbeam launched as Polkadot's first Parachain on January 11, 2022, creating a new path for blockchain interoperability with its EVM-compatible platform on Substrate. This development has led to the growth of an ecosystem with over 300 applications, establishing Moonbeam as a key platform for builders and users.

Built on Polkadot SDK, Moonbeam is an EVM-compatible environment that has been extended to include powerful new features based on Polkadot SDK that allow developers to easily customize applications to fit their needs. Polkadot SDK, developed by Parity Technologies and Ethereum co-founder Founder Gavin Wood, enables cross-chain interoperability through the use of Cross-Consensus Messaging (XCM).

Our network

Moonbeam, Moonriver, and Moonbase Alpha support the lifecycle of blockchain application development, from initial testing to final deployment, without the need for learning new tools.

  • Moonbeam offers an EVM-compatible Layer 1 Parachain. Its compatibility with Ethereum's ecosystem allows developers to use familiar tools and dApps, streamlining the development process. Applications on Moonbeam are ready for the broader market, bridging the gap between development and deployment.

  • Moonriver, running on Kusama, mirrors Moonbeam's capabilities but serves as a testing ground for new features. This network allows developers to test applications in a real but more forgiving environment before final deployment on Moonbeam.
