What is Moonriver?

Moonriver is a sister network to Moonbeam and serves as a community-led parachain on the Kusama network. Both Moonbeam and Moonriver provide Ethereum-compatible environments, allowing developers to use Ethereum-based tools, dApps, and protocols with minimal modifications. Moonriver mirrors Ethereum's Web3 RPC, keys, logs, subscriptions, accounts, and more, which significantly reduces the changes needed to run existing Solidity smart contracts on its blockchain.

Moonriver is designed to act as a canary network for Moonbeam, enabling developers to test and experiment with new features and upgrades in a real-world environment before implementing them on the more stable Moonbeam network. Being a part of the Kusama ecosystem, Moonriver benefits from Kusama's security, interoperability, and cross-chain capabilities.
