Cardano is within the information right this moment after Founder Charles Hoskinson announced that Cardano has launched an Ethereum Digital Machine (EVM) developer internet.
Alright, the EVM DevNet is up: https://t.co/fp4iKJvRnZ begin writing sensible contracts on Cardano. I wish to see what you all provide you with. I am going to retweet initiatives

The mentioned improvement will open the Cardano community as much as the Solidity/Ethereum group by way of a appropriate and interoperable platform utilizing their native code. Which means that Solidity builders can now write sensible contracts on Cardano because the community expands its attain.
This framework may also create a everlasting bridge between Ethereum and Cardano, one that can allow builders to work seamlessly throughout each ecosystems.
Cardano is reportedly restarting and accelerating the Ok Ethereum Digital Machine (KEVM) program, in what it refers to as “a correct-by-construction model of the Ethereum digital machine” specified within the Ok framework.
Cardano’s partnership with Runtime Verification earlier this yr additionally has an element to play in these developments. In the long term, Cardano goals to construct a Ok setting the place they will simply “plug-and-play” new VMs.
Up to now, the languages used for growing on the Cardano platform have been Haskell and Plutus, each of that are useful programming languages and contribute to Cardano’s strategy to a safer programming language for builders. Nevertheless, the draw back of that is that there usually are not many useful programmers and lots of can be required to be taught this paradigm so as to have the ability to code on the platform.
The Ok Ethereum Digital Machine (KEVM) can have the potential to attract in Solidity builders from Ethereum to actively use the Cardano platform for growing sensible contracts.
IOHK, commented on this in a blog, acknowledged,
“Full compatibility with the EVM is handy and engaging to many skilled builders acquainted with Ethereum, however KEVM inevitably additionally inherits the EVM’s weaknesses.”
As such, rolling out KEVM earlier than IELE, which Cardano refers to as a “safe different,” appears to be with the intention of drawing in builders who would have in any other case used the Ethereum community.
