Moonriver smart contracts platform goes live on Polkadot’s Kusama

Ethereum-compatible Moonriver has completed its launch process: more than 60 teams can start deploying their dApps to the platform in a fully permissionless manner.

According to the official announcement shared by Moonbeam Polkadot’s smart contracts platform, its community-led “sister chain” Moonriver goes live.

Starting from today, all elements of Moonriver become accessible, including Moonriver unified account structure (MOVR addresses are actually 0x-like Ethereum addresses), a Web3 RPC and precompiles.

Therefore, right now, this environment becomes suitable for dApps deployment. The Moonbeam team expects “dozens” of dApps to come to its smart contracts platform in the coming weeks.
