We have exciting news to share with our fantastic community, including the new cross-chain capabilities on Moonriver with KILT and Karura, governance updates with Polkassembly, a new hackathon available in Moonriver, and more! Let’s get started!

Whats New with Moonbeam & Moonriver

Polkassembly Governance and MetaMask Integration is Live on Moonriver, Coming Soon to Moonbeam

Moonbeam announced an integration with Polkassembly. This integration allows users to directly participate in governance and discussion for Moonriver and, soon, Moonbeam.

Karura’s KAR Token is Live on Moonriver & MOVR is Live on Karura Through XCM Integration

Karura’s token (KAR) is now live on Moonriver, and Moonriver (MOVR) tokens can be used on Karura. Once deposited on Moonriver as xcKAR (an XC-20 representation of KAR), the KAR token can be used across Moonriver’s active DeFi ecosystem.

KINT Token Can Now Be Used Natively Within Moonriver via XCM Integration

KINT, the native token of Kintsugi, is now available on Moonriver. Kintsugi tokens can now be used as xcKINT live within Moonriver’s fully Ethereum-compatible environment. The introduction of XC-20s in the broader Kusama ecosystem opens the door for more native cross-chain interactions possible across the Kusama and Polkadot ecosystems without needing a bridge.
