Moonbeam announced that its community-led sister network Moonriver on Kusama has completed the first phase of a 5-step deployment process.
Moonriver launched Phase 0 in Kusama on June 29, 2021, and started producing blocks, but the governance and infrastructure were operated by the Moonbeam team. After a week of testing, Phase 0 has now been completed and Moonriver/ has officially begun to enter Phase 1. At this stage, Moonriver will implement decentralized management and introduce community-led collectors to be added to the active collection.
In the past week, the Moonbeam team tested the block production, termination function and interactive performance of the Kusama relay chain through Moonriver. During this period, Moonriver has been upgraded at the same time, according to the matching repair and compatibility of the latest version of the relay chain.
In the coming weeks, community-led collectors will gradually take over the block production of the network. Moonriver is the first runnable parachain with open source and permissionless collector settings, supported by a customizable parachain pledge Pallet. The setting of collectors without permission is essential to ensure the overall anti-censorship and decentralization of the network. In the first phase, the Moonbeam team will ensure the normal operation of the decentralized collection of collectors in Moonriver, the Kusama relay chain, and its validators. Once the community-led block production stabilizes, it is announced that the deployment has entered the second phase. In the second phase, on-chain governance will be activated.
Moonriver’s deployment process is similar to Kusama and Polkadot, and consists of several stages to ensure the stable operation of the network. The deployment period of each stage is expected to be 1 to 2 weeks, and it will take about 4-6 weeks in total to realize the official network online. In the final stage, the network will be fully operational, decentralized, and balance transfers will be activated simultaneously.
In the first phase, Moonriver will carry out a number of technology-related upgrades. First of all, collectors will be open to vote, and the number of active collector sets will also be expanded to 32 active slots. For several months, a large number of community collectors have supported block production on the Moonbase Alpha testnet. We have invited collectors with the best blocks on Moonbase alpha to access active slots first to help support the operation of the Moonriver network. At this stage, the pledge and collection of people will be managed by the Moonriver network. Once the online preparations are completed, the network management will be transformed into an open and permissionless operating system.
Community-led collectors can now invest in block production. The next phase of the Moonriver network going online will gradually move towards further decentralization and network stability.
Since most of the Moonriver network components have not yet been activated, end users are still limited by its available functions. For example, end users cannot receive MOVR rewards, run pledges, perform balance transfers, or deploy contracts at this stage.
The launch of Moonriver was hosted by the Moonbeam Foundation and received support from the community-centered Moonriver crowd lending activity. Approximately 6,000 users worldwide contributed more than 200,000 KSMs to support crowd lending.
