What Is Moonbeam (GLMR) 

Moonbeam is an Ethereum (ETH) compatible smart contract parachain on Polkadot. Moonbeam makes it accessible to use quite popular Ethereum developer tools to build or redeploy Solidity projects in a Substrate-based environment. 

Moonbeam is a highly specialized parachain that mirrors Ethereum’s Web3 RPC, subscriptions, logs, accounts, keys, and more. It is much more than just an EVM implementation. The Moonbeam platform extends the base Ethereum feature set with added features such as on-chain governance, staking, and cross-chain integrations.

Moonbeam’s Ethereum compatibility is unmatched: 

  •  Minimal Changes: developers might use existing Solidity smart contracts right away, without need to rewrite or reconfigure.
  •  Use Existing Developer Tools: connect popular tools like MetaMask, Hardhat, Waffle, Remix, and Truffle via a complete set of Web3 RPC endpoints. Use well-known Javascript libraries such as Web3.Js or Ethers.Js. 
  •  Unified Accounts, Addresses, and Signatures: use your existing Ethereum H160 accounts & ECDSA signatures to interact with Moonbeam 
  •  Tap into the Most Integrations on Polkadot: use existing oracles, bridges, wallets, and other tools that are already building on Moonbeam 

 Moonbeam grants integration and connection between Polkadot Parachains as well as with other chains such as Ethereum and Bitcoin via bridges. 


  • Derek Yoo, Founder of Moonbeam and  CEO of PureStake – a platform that provides secure and reliable public blockchain infrastructure to blockchain app developers, projects and enterprises. 
  • Stefan Mehlhorn, a specialist in early-stage company management and operation, serves as the chief operations officer of both Moonbeam and PureStake. 
  • Katie Butler and Nate Hamilton from PureStake head the marketing and business development teams of the Moonbeam Network respectively. 
  • Alan Sapéde, Tim Baldwin, Aaron Evans, Olivia Smith, Francisco Agosti, Alberto Viera, Kevin Neilson, Brent Clagg, Yuki Pan, Joe Rhodes, and many others.


  • In June 2021, Moonriver went live on Kusama, making it the first live production level blockchain within the Moonbeam Network.
  • In December 2021, Moonbeam went live on Polkadot, as one of the first parachains in the ecosystem.


Interoperability is and will continue to be a high-priority item, in particular XCM development. For more information on XCM, please check out the XCM section of the documentation. 

Community Development 

There is and will continue to be a large focus on growing the Moonriver and Moonbeam ecosystems, including deployments of integrations and partnerships and the addition of bounty programs.
