Moonbeam Network is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform that's the easiest on-ramp to Polkadot.

Basic Information

"Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, Moonbeam Network is the easiest on-ramp for building an application on Polkadot. As an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform, Moonbeam makes it easy to use popular Ethereum developer tools to build or redeploy Solidity projects in a Substrate-based environment. Moonbeam is much more than just an EVM implementation: it’s a highly specialized Layer 1.5 chain that mirrors Ethereum’s Web3 RPC, accounts, keys, subscriptions, logs, and more. The Moonbeam platform extends the base Ethereum feature set with additional features such as on-chain governance, staking, and cross-chain integrations. As a decentralized smart contract platform, Moonbeam requires a utility token to function. Our token, Glimmer (GLMR), is central to the design of the network and can’t be removed without sacrificing security and essential functionality. Their Salient Features: Minimal Configuration Changes - No need to rewrite or reconfigure your smart contracts. They'll work right away; Familiar Smart Contract Languages - Support for Solidity, Vyper, and anything that compiles to EVM bytecode; Tools You Already Use - Use Ethereum-based tools you love like MetaMask, Remix, Hardhat, Waffle, and Truffle; Pre-Built Integrations - Built-in integrations for assets like DOT and ERC-20s, and infrastructure services like Chainlink and TheGraph.
