Moonbeam Network Launches: Now Live on Polkadot

The
fully
Ethereum
compatible
smart
contract
Moonbeam
platform,
has
launched
on
Polkadot.

The
game
is
on,
and
the
Moonriver
fans
are
thrilled
with
the
new
range
of
possibilities
.

The
now
first
fully
operational
parachain
on
Polkadot,
opens
a
door
for
more
than
80
projects
to
deploy
on
Moonbeam.
It
is
all
happening
right
now.

After
the
success
of
the
usage
and
the
DApp
deployments
of
its
sister
ecosystem
Moonriver
on
the
Kusama
network,
expectations
are
really
high.
It
promises
to
be
a
great
way
to
develop
new
blockchain
systems.


Moonbeam
is
Ready
to
GO

The
launching
process
was
divided
in
consecutives
stages,
to
guarantee
a
smooth
take-off.
Over
three
weeks,
beginning
on
Dec
17,
new
functionalities
were
gradually
introduced
and
carefully
verified.

First,
the
block
production
and
the
decentralization
were
set,
and
checked
to
be
running
well.
Then,
the
team
proceeded
to
remove
the
super
user
key
(Sudo),
and
to
enable
the
balance
transfers
and
the
EVM.

Once
everything
was
properly
checked,
they
increased
the
active
set
of
collators
to
48.

Now,
users
are
allowed
to
start
staking
with
collaborators,
get
their
crowdloan
rewards,
and
participate
as
active
network
members
on
the
on-chain
governance
system,
all
through
the
balance
transfers.


Well
Funded
and
Making
Progress

The
Moonbeam
Foundation
carried
out
a
crowdloan
campaign
that
raised
over
35M
DOT,
the
Polkadot
native
token,
($944
million),
to
support
its
launch
and
release.

Over
200,000
supporters
around
the
world
heard
the
call,
breaking
two
world
records;
the
highest
amount
of
DOT
received
by
any
parachain,
and
the
largest
number
of
contributors
ever.
That’s
how
high
expectations
are.

With
all
the
features
that
Moonbeam
offers,
it
is
easy
to
see
why.

A
total
of
45
million
GLMR
tokens
(a
30%
of
the
crowdloan
rewards)
has
been
distributed
proportionally
to
contributions,
among
the
participants.

The
other
70%
(105
million
GLMR
tokens)
is
vested
linearly
upon
the
96
week
lease
period.
Let’s
not
forget
that
the
lease
period
started
on
Dec
17
2021,
therefore,
there
are
three
weeks
of
vested
GLMR
tokens,
for
the
contributors
to
claim
already.

Also,
there´s
an
additional
3,9
M+
GLMR
or
-2.6%
of
the
pool
available.
The
Moonbeam
Foundation
DApp
clearly
displays
the
distributed
tokens,
and
offers
a
channel
to
claim
any
vested
to
date
tokens
as
well.


The
Tools
to
Develop
Better
Systems

These
next
weeks,
are
surely
going
to
burst
in
a
variety
of
infrastructure
projects
such
as
bridges,
The
Graph,
Chainlink
oracles,
multisignature
support
and
many
more.

Users
can
now
connect
Moonbeam
to
MetaMask,
to
use
their
transferable
GLMR
tokens.
Even
if
Moonriver
users
should
have
no
problem
in
running
on
Moonbeam,
here
are
some
useful
tutorials
to
sort
out
any
differences,
and
deal
with
Moonbeam
like
a
Pro.

Using
the
hashtag
#MoonbeamLightsUp.,
anyone
can
join
the
Moonbeam
community
to
celebrate
the
long
awaited
launch.


A
Great
Group

There’s
a
passionate
Moonbeam
team
working
very
hard
24/7,
to
ensure
the
network´s
security,
decentralization
and
stability.
With
all
the
funding
and
support
it
has,
Moonbeam
will
explode
in
utility.

No
more
waiting.
Now
it
is
time
to

Moonbeam,
and
make
the
blockchain
world
a
better
place.
It
is
all
about
connections,
which
is
what
Moonbeam
will
make
happen.

Building
natively
interoperable
applications
is
now
easy
and
quick
as
lightning.
Developers
are
allowed
to
deployDApp
frontends,
and
existing
Solidity
Smart
contracts,
with
minimal
changes
to
Moonbeam
on
Polkadot.

The
realistic
prospect
of
repeating
and
thrusting
Moonriver´s
success
on
Kusama,
has
already
lightened
up
spirits
all
over
the
world,
and
the
results
are
already
showing.

No
one
should
miss
this
opportunity.
