Moonriver Network


Moonriver is an Ethereum-compatible Solidity Smart Contracts Parachain on Kusama.

Moonriver is a companion network to Moonbeam and provides a permanently incentivized canary network. 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 is a Community-Led Sister Parachain on Kusama.

Independent Network

While Moonbeam code launches to Moonriver first, the network will continue to live on as a parachain on Kusama, with its own projects and specialized use cases.

Network Launch Status

Moonriver will follow a similar launch process as Kusama and Polkadot to ensure the stability of the network while it is deployed. This page contains the updates as each launch phase of the Moonriver Network is completed.

Moonriver token

Moonriver’s native cryptocurrency, MOVR, should play a key role in maintaining and operating the Moonriver network. It is expected to be used for paying transaction fees, supporting smart contract execution, incentivizing collators for producing blocks to support the network, and facilitating Moonriver’s on-chain governance mechanism.
