Moonriver is intended to function as the “canary network” for Moonbeam on Polkadot, meaning that the new code would ship to Moonriver first, where it can be tested and verified under real economic conditions, before being shipped on Moonbeam.
Both Biconomy and Moonriver share a pursuit of ‘ease of development’ for developers and projects… As Moonbeam’s community-led sister network on Kusama Moonriver operates as a parachain to help crypto projects expand their reach to new markets with a multi-chain approach.
The developer-friendly design and implementation of Moonriver have made it a destination for both new and established dApps alike. On Biconomy blockchain developers are provided a simplified onboarding and transaction experience for users of Web 3.0 and blockchain projects. It does this through robust APIs that remove many of the complexities that are inherent to Web 3.0 applications.
By working closely with Moonbeam, Biconomy’s APIs will eliminate many of the complexities that are inherent to Web3 projects, connecting Polkadot and Moonbeam to the larger cross-chain DeFi world.
Biconomy is a technology company building the multi-chain transaction infrastructure for next-generation web 3 applications. Through Biconomy’s powerful and easy-to-use APIs, developers can enable a simple and customized transaction journey so that their end-users don’t get frustrated by blockchain complexities. By solving key pain points at the crypto transactional layer, Biconomy is on a mission to simplify Web 3 experiences that will drive mass adoption. Biconomy just closed their seed round with Binance, Fenbushi, Outlier Ventures among the notable investors participating.
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.
