Our Partnership with Moonbeam

Happy to share about our partnership with Moonbeam Network with the integration of Witness to bring private, off-chain governance to the Polkadot ecosystem. Through Witness, dApp builders and developers on Moonbeam will be able to participate in gasless voting without revealing their personal identity or vote.

“The most successful projects employ formal governance mechanisms to manage important decisions. We want to provide Moonbeam developers with a rich set of integrations to incorporate governance into their protocols. The addition of Witness to the Moonbeam ecosystem expands the available options, adding unique privacy features, and providing a place for decentralized communities to discuss and vote on key issues.”

- Nate Hamilton, Director of Business Development at Moonbeam.

Witness provides a simple interface for users to create governance proposals and vote on them by connecting their wallets and the governance tokens contained within, at the same time allowing voters to choose between various privacy levels. While actual voting is conducted off-chain to eliminate gas costs and encourage greater participation in the governance process, on-chain execution of the final voting results is also possible via Chainhook.

Part of our mission around privacy is the belief that governance works better when the community can feel comfortable arriving at a decision without having their choice revealed to others. Witness is the product of this thinking as we serve the ballooning blockchain ecosystem by measuring and enforcing community consensus in a truly democratic and private manner, making it the ideal place for projects to launch, discuss and grow in common.

Moonbeam developers are now able to use Witness on Moonbeam’s TestNet, Moonbase Alpha, simply by visiting our Witness site.

About Moonbeam Network
Moonbeam is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. This Ethereum compatibility allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes. As a parachain on the Polkadot network, Moonbeam will benefit from the shared security of the Polkadot relay chain and integrations with other chains that are connected to Polkadot. Currently in active development by PureStake, Moonbeam is expected to reach MainNet by Q3 2021.
