Try Moonriver on Blockdaemon Moonriver is a companion network to Moonbeam and provides a permanently incentivized canary network to the main Moonbeam chain. New code ships to Moonriver first, where it can be tested and verified under real economic conditions. Once proven, the same code ships to Moonbeam on Polkadot.

Moonriver Key Features

Ethereum Compatible

Like Moonbeam, Moonriver is a full Ethereum-like environment and works with industry-standard Ethereum tools, DApps, and protocols. By mirroring Ethereum’s Web3 RPC, accounts, keys, subscriptions, logs, and more, Moonriver minimizes the changes required to run existing Solidity smart contracts on the network. Ethereum projects can simply replicate their DApp and deploy it to Moonbeam using Hardhat, Truffle, Remix, and other popular deployment tools.

Community Led

The Moonriver community will own a majority of the tokens minted, meaning holders themselves have a majority say over the future direction of the network.

Independent

Moonriver is an independent parachain which will continue to be supported into the future as a testing ground for Moonbeam features and updates. It is an early access window into potential features on Moonbeam.
