Wanchain Partners with Moonbeam to Promote DeFi Ecosystem in Kusama via Moonriver

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Decentralized blockchain interoperability solution Wanchain, and Moonbeam, an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network, have just announced the integration of Wanchain’s decentralized, non-custodial cross-chain infrastructure with Moonriver, Moonbeam’s sister network based on the Kusama blockchain.

As a result of this integration, devs will be able to develop decentralized cross-chain apps.

Both Wanchain and Moonbeam believe cross-chain interoperability of assets, data and smart contract calls will lead the next phase of innovation.

Despite cross-chain systems are gaining popularity and adoption, the industry still needs a comprehensive interoperability solution before blockchain can reach its full potential and here is where Wanchain comes into play by connecting Moonriver to the larger cross-chain DeFi world.

Direct bridges connecting Moonriver to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Wanchain, Litecoin, Binance Smart Chain and XRP Ledger are already in force.

Derek Yoo, Founder of Moonbeam, said:

“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. 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.”
