Singapore – June 21, 2023 – Moonbeam, the top destination for multi-chain applications on Polkadot, has announced an XCM connection between Moonriver and Mangata. Thanks to this community-approved integration, MOVR transfers to Mangata are enabled, and Mangata’s token can now be used as xcMGX, an XC-20 representation of MGX, across the Moonriver ecosystem.

Mangata X is a community-owned interchain DEX specializing in access to hard-to-find tokens. The Mangata integration was proposed by the Mangata team in the Moonbeam Community Forum with the required disclosures to give the community time to explore the project, comment, and ask questions. Its approval via governance reflects positive community sentiment toward the idea, moving the integration into development.

Mangata X is a Kusama DEX parachain that focuses on capital efficiency and fairness. It offers gasless swaps, protection against front-running and MEV via the Themis Consensus Extension, a novel method to secure the network called Proof-of-Liquidity, algorithmic buy and burn with every swap, liquidity gauges, permissionless pool creation, bootstrapping, and more. Mangata’s MGX token provides a base liquidity layer to secure the network which supports a diverse treasury.

Community feedback continues to support decentralization of the Moonbeam Network through community proposals like the Mangata integration proposal. OpenGov is live on Moonriver allowing any MOVR token holder to propose changes for the network, and all holders can vote. All referenda, including proposals and voting results, are visible on-chain, and decisions are made by majority vote. With community approval, OpenGov will launch on Moonbeam in the future.
