What is Moonriver (MOVR)? How to Buy MOVR in India?

Moonriver is the parallel network for Moonbeam (GLMR). It is a platform to develop and test smart contracts for its readiness for real world user scenarios. Once the smart contract is tested it can be sent to the Moonbeam – a parachain on the Polkadot network. 

In today’s blockchain solutions a battle tested smart contract is crucial for optimal security of user funds and smooth operations of a platform. Smart contract is the heart of a blockchain based platform. To ensure that the code of a smart contract is free from vulnerabilities, one can test the same on Moonriver. To enable smart contract testing developers one requires the native token of Moonriver (MOVR). While there are third party smart contract auditors to analyze the infrastructure and code vulnerabilities, there could be chances of human error. 

The protocol offers some user-friendly tools for smart contract testing like EVM implementation and APIs that fetch function calls from the client (user).

Once the smart contract is deployed and optimized for real time production, the developer can transfer the contract directly to Moonbeam or Kusama parachain. The platform’s use case and the utility of its native token MOVR is what brings monetary value to the token. 


EVM implementation for testing: Developers on the platform can test the smart contract on real world applications on the Ethereum blockchain. 

Gas metering for smart contracts: The native token of Moonriver allows the builder to pay gas fee for deploying a smart contract.

Range of developer tools and platform integrations: The platform offers on chain governance for improvement proposals that are peer reviewed, the native token is also used to pay network fees. Moonriver has integrated important softwares like Metamask, Remix IDE, web3.js, Ethers.js, Truffle and other toolkits such as Polkadot.js apps. The platform also offers blockchain bridging through softwares like Chainbridge, Ren, Interlay, Snowfork, Axelar.
