What is Moonbeam

Moonbeam is one of Polkadot’s main parachains that enable improved interoperability and scalability between different blockchains. Parachain is a shard chain that connects to Polkadot’s main chain, Relay Chain, and is an independent blockchain.

It is possible to build unique tokens and economic zones within each parachain, and to include designs and functions specific to each use case. You can also send and receive messages and transactions between parachains.

The Polkadot ecosystem provides a modular framework “Substrate” for building blockchains. It also includes the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine), which is highly compatible with Ethereum because Moonbeam is built on the EVM. As the easiest on-ramp for building apps on Polkadot, you can integrate existing smart contracts on Moonbeam with minimal changes, or develop smart contracts using Solidity that developers are accustomed to. Moonbeam seems to be a promising project to establish an Ethereum-compatible network on Polkadot.

Project on Moonbeam

Moonbeam is a relatively new project but in the last 6 months various new projects were built on Moonbeam and many projects integrated their functions with Moonbeam.

Below are some examples:

  • SushiSwap
  • Balancer
  • IDEX
  • Seascape
  • Linear Finance
  • Ocean Protocol
  • Chainlink

The Moonbeam development team plans to move the network in multiple stages.
