Moonbeam is a bridging platform focused on interoperability between Ethereum and Polkadot. Moonbeam aims to provide developers a lower barrier to entry for developing Ethereum compatible decentralized applications on a more cost-effective platform like Polkadot.

The blockchain compatibility allows developers to use their existing Ethereum smart contracts and dApp frontends to easily move over to Moonbeam with minimal changes, enabling cross-chain liquidity between Ethereum and Polkadot.
