Cross-Chain Connected Contracts with Hyperlane
Cross-chain communication lives at the heart of Moonbeam, which is why Hyperlane, another cross-chain protocol, has deployed on Moonbeam. Similar to previously introduced protocols Axelar and LayerZero, Hyperlane allows developers to write smart contracts that can communicate across blockchains, which lets developers build cross-chain connected applications on Moonbeam that can tap into functionality from Polkadot, Ethereum, Avalanche, and beyond. Multichain dApps are currently unified interfaces for protocols duplicated across multiple EVMs. Protocols will be able to connect their contracts cross-chain using Hyperlane’s general message passing to become multichain aware, allowing for advanced interoperability and functionality between what would otherwise be isolated ecosystems. To demonstrate the power of connected contracts, walk through this demo that sends and stores a string from one TestNet EVM to another. The demo requires a MetaMask account with the Moonbase Alpha network added, which can be accomplished by visiting the Moonbeam docs site. — Intro to Hyperlane Contracts - Hyperlane is a delegated proof of stake chain protocol that validates and secures cross-chain communication via configurable consensus methods. Every validator in Hyperlane’s network will validate for every chain that Hyperlane is connected to. Hyperlane’s protocol includes verifiable fraud proofs that can be calculated by its network o...
Cross-Chain Connected Contracts with LayerZero
Connected contracts allow smart contracts to communicate with each other across chains, opening the possibility for multichain-aware dApps. Moonbeam’s first integration for connected contracts was Axelar, and in this blog post you will be introduced to another popular cross-chain protocol. LayerZero is designed to be a lightweight interoperability protocol for cross-chain message passing. Benefits of LayerZero’s connected contract design include nonce-ordered messages and configurable trustlessness. Using LayerZero’s connected contracts solution, developers can build dApps that can tap into functionality from Polkadot, Ethereum, Avalanche, Swimmer, and beyond. Multichain dApps are currently unified interfaces for protocols duplicated across multiple EVMs. Protocols will be able to connect their contracts cross-chain using LayerZero’s message passing to become multichain-aware, allowing for advanced interoperability and functionality between what would otherwise be isolated ecosystems.

Spotlight: Cross Chain NFTs and 1:1 NFT Art on Moonbeam
The NFT scene on Moonbeam has grown with the development of new blockchain technology. New use cases that include the freedom for users to access their NFTs across blockchains and the concept of one-of-one NFTs are making waves in the space. Moonbeam is actively improving cross-chain access to NFTs with connected contracts, which opens new opportunities for the use of NFTs on any blockchain. The Moonbeam network is home to a diverse and active ecosystem that includes NFTs natively supported by the ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standards available for use in cross-chain connected smart contracts. This means Ethereum-compatible NFTs and other assets are visible and useable from one application without moving them across blockchains. This flexibility will impact NFT use in many aspects of gaming, metaverse, art collection, and more. Moonbeam is Ethereum compatible and supports ERC-721 NFT bridging with Ethereum, but this may no longer be necessary as the next generation of user-friendly applications solve the problem of fragmented cross-chain functionality and user experience. — NFTs on Moonbeam - A variety of top-tier multi-chain NFT marketplaces deployed on Moonbeam are already experimenting with the possibilities brought by recent innovations. Moonbeam’s marketplaces include Treasureland, NFTrade, Tofu NFT, Moonbeans, Mintverse, and Raresama. As a smart contract platform for building cross-chain connected applications that ca...
Using the Moonbeam Community Forum
The Interim Treasury Program is a 6-month program that establishes a separate community Treasury Council to manage Treasury funds, a budget for Treasury spending, and a required discussion time to gather community feedback on possible future Treasury proposals. When a community member has a new idea for a Treasury proposal, the first step they’ll need to take before submitting a formal on-chain proposal is to post their idea on the Moonbeam Community Forum. The proposer will collect feedback from community members and the Treasury Council for five days. After five days of community engagement, the proposal can be submitted formally on-chain along with a proposal bond. The proposal bond on Moonbeam and Moonriver is 5% of the amount requested by the proposer, with a minimum amount and no upper limit. The minimum is 100 GLMR on Moonbeam and 1 MOVR on Moonriver, although these amounts may change in the future. The proposal can then be converted to a Council motion or rejected by any member of the Treasury Council. If none of the Treasury Council members propose it as a motion, the bond stays locked and cannot be claimed back by the proposer. Assuming the proposal was converted to a Council motion, the motion will then be subject to an on-chain vote. A majority of 3/5th of the Treasury Council is required to pass the motion. On the other hand, the threshold for rejecting a proposal is at least 1/2 of the Treasury Council. If th...

Moonriver Provides EVM Smart Contract Platform for Robonomics Applications with XCM Integration
Singapore — November 22, 2022 — Moonbeam, the top destination for multi-chain applications on Polkadot, has announced an XCM connection between Moonriver and Robonomics by opening an HRMP channel to bring the Robonomics native token, XRT, to Moonriver. The XRT token can now be used as xcXRT across the Moonriver ecosystem. Robonomics is an open-source platform for IoT applications. It supports Web3 technology that implements the exchange of information in atomic transactions between user applications, IoT services, and complex robotics. The Robonomics platform contains tools for developing IoT applications, both on the robotics and the user interface sides. The user and device communicate using IPFS, Ethereum, and Polkadot. With this integration, the Robonomics team can explore bringing smart contracts into their parachain on Kusama. Developers can build atop Moonriver’s fully Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform to explore the integration of composable smart contracts into the real-world applicability that IoT devices have been created to provide. Taking on-chain data and being able to translate that into real-world events will open up a new class of development and use cases that blockchains can power. In August, Moonbeam announced a live proof-of-concept of XCM-to-EVM functionality on Moonbase Alpha TestNet. This technology allows developers on remote chains to trigger function calls on the Moonriver/Mo...
Bifrost Polkadot Integrates with Moonbeam to Power GLMR Liquid Staking
Singapore — November 17, 2022 — Moonbeam, the top destination for multi-chain applications on Polkadot, has announced an XCM connection between Moonbeam and Bifrost by the opening of HRMP channels bringing the Bifrost native token, BNC, to Moonbeam. Bifrost’s token can now be used as xcBNC, an XC-20 representation of BNC, across the Moonbeam ecosystem, and the GLMR token is now available on Bifrost. Bifrost exists as a parachain on both Kusama and Polkadot as Bifrost Kusama and Bifrost Polkadot. Both parachains are DeFi protocols that provide staking derivatives and liquidity to bonding assets. Bifrost powers vTokens (Staking Derivatives Voucher Token), which allow users to exchange PoS tokens for vTokens and obtain liquidity and staking rewards through Bifrost protocol The underlying technology that enables the XC-20 standard, XCM (Cross-Consensus Messaging) is uniquely made possible by the Polkadot architecture. XCM is a language that enables asset transfers from Bifrost, and other parachains to Moonbeam represented as standard ERC-20s. This format provides flexible interoperability within the Polkadot ecosystem and beyond — a key building block of the cross-chain connected future. Moreover, XCM allows one parachain to perform remote calls on the other, a key element that will power the GLMR liquid staking solution that Bifrost provides through XCM. The recent activation of the XCM SDK makes it easier ...
Moonriver and Moonbeam Natively Supports Auto-Compounding of Staking Rewards
Singapore — November 03, 2022 — Moonbeam, the top destination for multi-chain applications on Polkadot, has released runtime 1901 in Moonriver, and soon, Moonbeam, after the passing referendum 116. Runtime 1901 includes new features that allow users to auto-compound staking rewards earned on the Moonriver and Moonbeam staking DApps. This upgrade also activates randomness, a feature anticipated for gaming on Moonbeam, and identity verification. The latest technical components included in Runtime 1901 will positively impact application development with new use cases on the Moonriver and Moonbeam networks. — Auto-Compounded Staking - GLMR and MOVR token holders support the maintenance of the Moonbeam and Moonriver networks, respectively, by locking their tokens to collators. When a user delegates tokens to a collator, the staking rewards earned on the Moonbeam and Moonriver Dapps are automatically deposited into the connected wallet. These tokens are available to be used however the token holder wishes. If the staker desired to add the rewarded tokens back into the delegation, the only option was to do so manually. Now there is an automatic option. The implementation of runtime 1901 now allows Moonriver staking dapp users to autostake their token rewards with one click. This feature will be added to Moonbeam in the next two weeks. Users have always been free to delegate these funds, but it had to be done manual...
Quest 3: Restore the Mooncrystals
Escape to Illuminate Part 6. — The Moonwolf was pulled upward in the beam of light that blasted from the Kusama tree to space: A moonbeam reflected back to its home. As the Moonwolf was pulled skyward in the moonbeam the Sungod knew his window to intervene was closing. In his final attempt to thwart the Champions from completing their mission, the Sungod used his power to shift the sun, which he has already pulled as close to the earth as he dared, into the path of the moonbeam. The heat of the fiery globe disrupted the Moonbeam and the Moonwolf fell toward the scorching hot earth. The Moonwolf called the phoenix whose fate was intertwined with his own. It shot out of the sky, its wings spread under the Moonwolf to slow his fall. The Sungod shrieked with rage and moved to strike the Moonwolf. The Moonwolf’s life memories flashed before his eyes. He recalled the day that he awoke in the rubble and his howl released the river and the moon from the mountain returning life to the valley. The spirit of the phoenix had been with him as long as he remembered, even when he was sucked into the whirlpool that had taken him deep under the lake where he was held in suspended animation for years. He had awakened when the Moonwarriors had begun their Quests, lying in wait until it was time for his final job. The fire of the phoenix was no protection from the Sungod’s attempts to smash the Moonwolf. His first swing missed nar...

The shelter and cool air from the tunnel entrances offered some relief from the hot sun, but the rising heat outside was troubling. The Moonwarriors ran around the settlement gathering any stragglers still looking for shelter as they sweated through their clothes. The sun looked dangerously close. One Champion passing by the Kusama tree noticed a hooded figure slumped sitting at the base of it, on the roots. He approached shouting for the figure to move to one of the houses for shelter. The figure remained still, and the Champion jogged up to him. ...

|DAM Finance Receives Strategic Investment From Arrington Capital Moonbea...
[PRESS RELEASE - Miami, Florida, 11th August 2022]
dPRIME Asset Modules Finance (”DAM Finance” or “DAM”), a protocol for creating purchasing power from cross-chain token portfolios, is pleased to share that it has received funding from the Arrington Capital Moonbeam Growth Fund.
The investment in DAM Finance is the third major investment by the Arrington Capital Moonbeam Growth Fund, a recently launched $100m fund to fuel the Moonbeam ecosystem.
DAM facilitates purchasing power from the broadest range of blockchain-secured collateral, including longer tail, yield generating, and real-world assets. In the protocol, borrowers deposit baskets of tokens in a single transaction to mint dPRIME, a Dotsama stablecoin on Moonbeam.
DAM’s innovation provides borrowers more flexibility in dPRIME issuance and vault maintenance by mutualizing the value of deposited collateral. As part of its product roadmap, DAM will utilize Moonbeam’s infrastructure to unlock liquidity for assets native to other parachains and blockchains outside of the Dotsama ecosystem.
“We believe the future is multi-chain and inclusive, a mentality that the DAM Finance team shares with us,” said Michael Arrington of Arrington Capital. “DAM is taking a thoughtful approach to DeFi in creating a new model for purchasing power and risk management. We are thrilled to be supporting them as they embark to solve a missing component in today’s environment.”
|Ambire DeFi wallet integrates Moonbeam as first Parachain supported
Ambire, providers of an integrated wallet offering a single interface to utilize popular DeFi apps, announced today it has added support for the Moonbeam Network. Its users will now be able to use Ambire to send transactions and use native Moonbeam DeFi protocols.
Moonbeam is the Ethereum-compatible parachain of the Polkadot network.
Unlike most other EVM-based networks out there, Moonbeam is not a direct code fork of Ethereum node software. Instead, it is a Substrate chain that emulates Ethereum features and its communication protocol to provide a compatible environment. This means that Moonbeam has additional features such as integrated governance, cross-chain integrations, and staking, which are native to Substrate.
DApp developers can deploy on Moonbeam just as they would on other EVM chains, using the exact same tooling and code. Existing major DeFi protocols on Moonbeam include Sushi and Curve, with a number of Moonbeam-native options as well for swapping and lending.
The Ambire Wallet enables access to DeFi opportunities from a single interface, which provides a useful central dashboard for users' DeFi activity.
This includes the ability to swap tokens or access dapps via WalletConnect, with the platform offering a detailed breakdown of balances and past transactions. Ambire also includes scam-proofing mechanisms, for example by ensuring that users give token approvals to the exact contract they meant to interact with.

|Moonbeam Emerges As The Gateway To The Promised “Multichain”...
For years, developers have been trying to determine the best alternative for Ethereum’s increasing network congestion and gas costs. Even though layer-2 scaling solutions involving zkSNARKS and Optimistic Rollups have been introduced to alleviate these challenges, most of these answers aim to improve Ethereum’s scalability.
On the other hand, Moonbeam leverages the interoperability and scalability of Polkadot to offer developers an environment that is fully compatible with Ethereum and its corresponding development tools. The Moonbeam Network serves as a highly-specialized layer-1 blockchain. Accordingly, it isn’t here to compete with Ethereum but will assuredly extend Ethereum’s base functionalities with Polkadot’s built-in features like on-chain governance, cross-chain integrations, and staking.
Since Ethereum already holds the lion’s share of the DeFi ecosystem (and the majority of the dApps are deployed atop it), it is quite certain that even in a multichain future, it will continue to hold a commanding position. In this context, Moonbeam will offer developers the ability to migrate their existing Ethereum-based projects to its network without making any major codebase changes. At the same time, it will extend a project’s reach to other chains (and users) who are already part of the Polkadot network.
As DeFi takes the multichain approach, which is a must for projects to achieve mainstream adoption, multichain infrastructure provid...

|Second Parachain Auction Winner Moonbeam Goes Live on Polkadot
Polkadot's parachain smart contract platform with Ethereum compatibility, Moonbeam, has recently completed its pre-launch process and is now live on the Polkadot network.
Moonbeam Launches on Polkadot
Announcing the launch on Tuesday, the project's team noted that Moonbeam is the first fully operational parachain on the Polkadot blockchain. With the release, the protocol will pave the way for over 80 projects in its ecosystem to be deployed.
Earlier in October, Moonbeam won the second Polkadot Parachain Auction after seeing over 35 million DOT worth more than $1.4 billion contributed by its supporters from across the globe.
With Moonbeam now live on Polkadot, it intends to bring several new integrations, activities, and users to boost the Polkadot ecosystem and contribute to the growth of the network.
Per the announcement, Moonbeam removed the superuser key, Sudo, during its last launch phase. As a result, the control of the network will now be transferred to the token holders.
Additionally, Moonbeam has also enabled balance transfers and Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) on its platform. The balance transfer will allow users to stake and start claiming rewards from the crowd loan.
After this development, the chain will be overseen by the token holders using Moonbeam's governance system. The active set of collectors has also been increased to 48.
Following the launch, GLMR token holders can stake with collectors, claim crowdloan rewards, and serve as active net...
