WHAT ARE EVM-COMPATIBLE NETWORKS?

Not all blockchain networks are compatible. For example, Bitcoin's network can't accept contract deployment that would work on Ethereum nor can the two network's native tokens be swapped in between each other directly.

'EVM' stands for Ethereum Virtual Machine. Simplified, this is a global computer network with its own protocol standards. The system was created to host smart contracts of all kinds. That's what sets it apart from other networks.

EVM entails a network that can use the same smart contracts as Ethereum. There is a growing ecosystem of different blockchains that use a similar technology, which in turns make it possible to use them all with any EVM-compatible wallet (Metamask, for example).

Some of the better known EVM-compatible networks include:

  • Ethereum (the mothership of sorts)
  • Binance Smart Chain
  • Polygon
  • Fantom
  • OKExChain
  • Optimistic Ethereum
  • Arbitrum

Marblecake builds primarily on EVM-compatible code. We will successively deploy our tools on other networks and thereby help you bridge them almost seamlessly.
