Rust-Based Innovation in Blockchain

Moonbeam is Built on Substrate, a New Framework for Building Interoperable Blockchains

Like all Polkadot parachains, Moonbeam is built on Substrate and programmed in Rust. Substrate was created by the Parity team with the express purpose of simplifying the process for creating blockchains that can natively connect and interact with one another. Check out the GitHub repositories for each project to learn how you can contribute.
