OnFinality Powers Moonbeam, Moonriver and Moonbase Alpha With API And Node Services
OnFinality, a multi-chain infrastructure provider, announces API and Node Services for Moonbeam, Moonriver and Moonbase Alpha!
OnFinality has been providing a scalable API and node services for the Moonbeam network since the early days of the Moonbase Alpha Testnet through to production. Since then, we’ve also helped to support the growth of Moonbeam’s various networks such as Moonbeam, Moonriver and Moonbase Alpha with vital and scalable blockchain infrastructure.
While the partnership has been in place for over 2 years, we wanted to make an official announcement to open up more options for dApp developers wanting to build on Moonbeam’s networks quickly and easily.
“OnFinality has provided vital and scalable API services for Moonbeam since the early days of the Moonbase Alpha TestNet through to production. We’ve worked closely with their team and have been able to rely on them for quality infrastructure and prompt response times”

What is Moonbeam? ($GLMR)
Moonbeam is a smart contract platform for building cross-chain connected applications that can access users, assets, and services on any chain. By uniting functionality from Ethereum, Cosmos, Polkadot and more into a single platform, Moonbeam solves today’s fragmented user experience — unlocking true interoperability and paving the way for the next generation of applications.
Moonbeam is designed for a multichain future, and with this in mind it focuses on the importance of allowing developers to take advantage of the connectivity between networks. Moonbeam supports this idea by providing Ethereum-based tools to the Polkadot network such as MetaMask, standardises on popular smart contract languages like Solidity and Vyper, and features top integrations like Chainlink, Gnosis Safe, and Etherscan. Moonbeam launched as the second-ever fully functioning parachain on Polkadot and is one of the top projects in the ecosystem.
