polkadot Compatible with Moonbeam of Ethereum Project in Taifang

Keywords: Blockchain Ethereum

brief introduction

Ethereum-compatible parallel chains built with Substrate. It references frontier's code.
Moonbeam is a developer-oriented block chain dedicated to providing compatibility with existing Ethernet developer tool chains and networks. It does this by providing a complete EVM implementation, a Web3-compatible API, and a bridge connecting the Moonbeam to the existing Ethernet network. This allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp front-end to Moonbeam with minimal changes.
Moonbeam will also become a parallel chain on the Polkadot network. This means that it will gain shared security from the Polkadot relay chain and be able to integrate with other chains connected to Polkadot.


  1. clone Source
git clone -b v0.13.2 https://github.com/PureStake/moonbeam
cd moonbeam
  1. Compile
cargo build --release

3. Run

./target/release/moonbeam --dev

You should see the output shown below, showing the idle state of the block waiting to be generated:

Connect polkadot-js

The development node is a Substrate-based node, so you can interact with it using standard Substrate tools. The two RPC endpoints provided are:

  • HTTP:
  • WS: ws://
    First connect to it using the Polkadot.js application. Open browser: https://polkadot.js.org/apps/#/explorer . This opens Polkadot.js Apps, which automatically connects to Polkadot MainNet.

    Click the upper left corner to open the menu to configure the network, and navigate down to open the development submenu. There, you need to switch the Local Node option, which points the Polkadot.js application to ws://, select the Switch button, and the site should be connected to your Moonbeam development node.

    After connecting to the Polkadot.js application, you will see the Moonbeam development node waiting for the transaction to arrive to start building blocks.

Import one of the Private Key s to metamask

  1. We can see that the balance is displayed properly

Deploy smart contracts using remix

  1. open https://remix.ethereum.org/ And open the example Owner.sol
  2. Compile
  3. Instead, switch to deploying tab s
    Fill in rpc interface address
  4. Open metamsk to select a connection account and you will see the account and balance in the deploy interface

    5. Fill in gas limit click deployment
  5. The metamask interface opens automatically, click OK
  6. console displays the deployment status
  7. Open Block 12 in polkadot.js to view transactions
  8. evm log shows the contract address
  9. Enter the contract address in the deploy interface and click At address
  10. Click to expand. Here's how the contract works.
  11. Click getOwner to get the current Owner
  12. Enter another account address in address newOwner and click changeOwner
  13. This opens metamask and clicks OK again, which completes a contract call
  14. Click getOwner again, and a new address will be displayed indicating that the contract method call was successful
