Lots of excitement for the Moonbeam ecosystem this month, including the completion of the Take Flight event, 2M transactions on the Moonriver parachain, plus new projects, deployments, and events
What’s New with Moonbeam & Moonriver
The Take Flight community token event was a tremendous success, raising $24.5 million to support the launch of the Moonbeam Network. The Moonbeam Foundation had initially allocated 80 million GLMR tokens for the event (8% of the initial supply), but due to the overwhelming support, this allocation was increased by 20 million tokens to a total of 100 million tokens. Participants in the event can now see their finalized agreement by logging into the Take Flight website and visiting their “Profile” and then “Past Transactions.”
Moonriver Hits 2 Million Transactions Just One Month After Launch
Less than a month since completing its launch, the Moonriver network has reached 2 million transactions and over 120,000 wallet addresses. These metrics are significant indicators of usage and adoption, and are also a great indicator of what’s to come as more critical infrastructure (bridges, indexing protocols, and multisig) is deployed.

New Partners & Projects Building on Moonbeam
The Moonriver ecosystem has been booming, with dozens of deployments onboarding each month. Here are some of this month’s additions that we want to highlight:

Ambassador of the Month
A new monthly program to celebrate the outstanding contributions from our ambassador community
Lyn, Senior Ambassador
Being an ambassador has been the most rewarding experience. I am privileged to communicate with the team, express my opinion about the program, and shape its direction. I do not have technical skills, and yet here I am, a part of the project that is literally programming our way into the multi-chain future. As an ambassador, I looked through Russian translations and came up with ways to improve the quality. I also put together a dictionary of crypto and project-related terms. In less than a month, I was leading a team of translators chosen among fellow a. ambassadors, and we were the first to translate the website into Russian. Now, as a senior ambassador, I have met people from all walks of life in the program who have one thing in common – a passion for innovation and the promise of a decentralized future. To be a part of such a vibrant community is truly fascinating.
