Try Moonbeam on Blockdaemon Moonbeam is a developer-oriented parachain that strives to provide compatibility with the existing Ethereum developer toolchain and network. It does this by providing a full EVM implementation, a Web3-compatible API, and bridges that connect Moonbeam to existing Ethereum networks. This allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and dApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes.

Why Use Blockdaemon? Blockdaemon is the Total Node Management Solution

Blockdaemon guarantees peace of mind, as you never have to worry about maintaining or upgrading your nodes ever again — we look after all of that for you. Our finger is constantly on the pulse of each blockchain we support to ensure all of our nodes remain perfectly healthy. Our extensive experience across protocols lets us expertly monitor, repair and replace nodes where protocol level errors may occur. For any protocol updates needed, we look after these in advance so you never see any disruption in service.

Institutional Grade Security

Security is our top priority here at Blockdaemon. Our world-class node infrastructure spans across eight different cloud and bare metal providers, guaranteeing vendor and geographical diversity. This means we deploy nodes from a suite of secure data centers distributed across the globe to achieve a diversified and resilient network.

Dedicated Node Infrastructure

All nodes purchased through us are 100% customer dedicated. This means your node is yours exclusively. You’ll enjoy a dedicated node which has a unique address, its own unique connection and authentication key. Furthermore, these are never reused. We ensure your node is not open and exposed to anyone on the internet. Any nodes you’d like to add on additionally can be done so quickly and easily as well!

A Trusted Partner

Blockdaemon is by your side on your blockchain journey. We are the only infrastructure platform for blockchain nodes which offer multi-cloud and multi-geographical support, with just a few clicks. Want custom configurations and branded experiences? No problem, we provide a unified, whole-org, collaborative rollout to manage a complete network. Whatever your needs, we will work closely with you to deliver the solution you need.

Moonbeam Key Featuers

Ethereum Compatible

Moonbeam contains a full EVM implementation, enabling Solidity-based smart contracts to be migrated with minimal change and with expected execution results.


Moonbeam allows native cross-chain integration via the Polkadot network and via token bridges, which allows for token movement, state visibility, and message passing with Ethereum and other chains.

Substrate Compatible

Moonbeam is compatible with the Substrate Ecosystem Toolset, including block explorers, front-end development libraries, and wallets, allowing developers and users to use the right tool for what they are trying to accomplish. Substrate is the underlying technology which Polkadot and its parachains are based on.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • To get started now, see our staking guide here.

  • Moonbeam uses a block production mechanism based on Polkadot’s Nominated Proof of Stake model where there are collators and validators. Collators maintain Moonbeam by collecting transactions from users and producing state transition proofs for the Relay Chain validators

  • As a decentralized smart contract platform, Moonbeam requires a utility token to function. The token, Glimmer (GLMR), is central to the design of the network and can’t be removed without sacrificing security and essential functionality. Glimmer is used to pay for smart contract execution, playing the same role that ETH plays on Ethereum.

  • Moonbeam (via its full EVM implementation) will support any of the existing Ethereum tools and languages that compile down to EVM-compatible bytecode (e.g., Vyper). Solidity will be the primary language. It has no plans to support Polkadot’s own native language for smart contracts.
