Developers on Kusama Will Be Able to Access Wanchain’s Decentralised Blockchain Interoperability Solution to Build Crosschain Applications

Wanchain, the world’s premier decentralised blockchain interoperability solution, and Moonbeam, the Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform in Polkadot, are pleased to announce an integration of Wanchain’s industry-leading decentralised, non-custodial crosschain infrastructure with Moonriver. Moonriver, Moonbeam’s community-led sister network on Kusama, completed its final launch phase last Thursday and is now fully functional. Wanchain is one of the first projects to deploy to Moonriver. In the future, Wanchain will also deploy to Moonbeam and access Moonbeam and Polkadot’s fast-paced growing ecosystems. This integration will strengthen the DeFi ecosystem in Kusama by enabling developers to build decentralised crosschain applications. Wanchain and Moonbeam both believe that the next phase of blockchain innovation will be marked by the crosschain interoperability of assets, data, and smart contract calls. Both projects are fully committed to building an interoperable multichain future.

Wanchain, a decentralised blockchain interoperability solution that connects the world’s isolated blockchain networks, is the only project that enables truly decentralised crosschain transactions between isolated heterogeneous blockchain networks. Wanchain’s crosschain infrastructure already supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, Wanchain, EOSIO, Binance Smart Chain, Litecoin, XRP Ledger, and now Kusama via Moonriver, as well as dozens of other tokens. The addition of Moonriver reinforces Wanchain’s position as the world’s most advanced crosschain solution. Soon, Wanchain will also integrate with Moonbeam to access the Polkadot community and ecosystem.

Moonriver, like its sister network Moonbeam, is an EVM-compatible smart contract platform designed to make it easy for developers to build or port their Solidity projects to a Substrate-based environment. Moonriver enables a smooth expansion from an Ethereum environment to Kusama. Much like Kusama’s own relationship to Polkadot, Moonriver is intended to serve as a canary net for Moonbeam. And much like Kusama, Moonriver is proving to be the place where many teams are first deploying their protocols.

Li Ni, Wanchain VP of Business Development and Operations, states:

“Moonbeam is rapidly becoming the industry leader for vision and execution by building a fully ethereum-compatible environment on Polkadot. They are already the premiere on-ramp to the Polkadot network. By working closely with Moonbeam, Wanchain’s best-in-class crosschain infrastructure will connect Polkadot and Moonbeam to the larger crosschain DeFi world.”

Wanchain’s decentralised crosschain bridges connect Moonriver to the larger crosschain DeFi world. Direct bridges connecting Moonriver to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Wanchain, Litecoin, Binance Smart Chain, and XRP Ledger are already deployed. This means that tokens and other assets on all these public chains can move to Moonriver. Similarly, Moonriver’s own $MOVR is now crosschain compatible with Ethereum, Wanchain and Binance Smart Chain.

“DeFi activity is growing on many different blockchains, but the lack of integration between these blockchain ecosystems limits the liquidity and traction for many protocols,” says Derek Yoo, Founder of Moonbeam. “Wanchain offers bi-directional connectivity options to multiple blockchain ecosystems from Moonriver. This connectivity will provide a rich set of assets to the growing defi ecosystem on Kusama and ultimately Polkadot.”

While crosschain systems continue to gain popularity and traction, the industry still requires a comprehensive interoperability solution before blockchain can reach its full potential. This is the problem that Wanchain and Moonbeam are tackling together. More details about this partnership, including Moonbeam integration, will be shared in the coming weeks and months.

About Moonbeam

Moonbeam is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. This Ethereum compatibility allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes. As a parachain on the Polkadot network, Moonbeam will benefit from the shared security of the Polkadot relay chain and integrations with other chains that are connected to Polkadot. Currently in active development by PureStake, Moonbeam is expected to reach MainNet by Q4 2021. Learn more:
