The Importance of EVM Compatibility and the Future of Interoperability

In the ever-evolving landscape of blockchain technology, the question of Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatibility has become a crucial factor in determining the success of a network. Traditionally, new blockchain networks aimed to become EVM compatible or had plans to achieve it. However, the landscape has shifted, with established standalone Layer 1 (L1) networks also embracing EVM compatibility.

The EVM, conceived by its creators several years ago, has become a powerful force in the blockchain world. It has given rise to a diverse array of networks, each offering unique benefits to users and providing a familiar environment for developers. For instance, Solana transitioned into EVM compatibility a year ago, experiencing significant growth and adoption. Similarly, the permissioned Hedera Hashgraph network recently followed suit, attracting a surge in active developers since its adoption.

These examples join a growing list of EVM-compatible networks, including Cosmos’s Canto and Coinbase’s Ethereum Layer 2 Base network. Other networks can achieve EVM compatibility through solutions like Layer One X (L1X), which promises comprehensive cross-chain interoperability, irrespective of their EVM compatibility status.

The rush toward EVM compatibility signifies a market demand for interoperability, rather than the proliferation of new networks. While some argue that EVM compatibility is essential for long-term industry impact, this perspective oversimplifies the issue. It highlights a broader challenge: the lack of robust interchain operability across non-EVM chains.

Addressing this concern, L1X introduces the X-Talk platform, which eliminates the need for networks to continuously adapt to the industry’s changing environment. Instead, the industry itself adapts to these networks, streamlining interoperability.

However, achieving interoperability is not a simple task. It demands extensive development, security audits, and careful code deployment. Many networks differ significantly from the EVM, posing compatibility challenges. For instance, Cosmos networks offer seamless interoperability within their ecosystem but require complex token bridges to connect with external networks, unlike the larger Ethereum ecosystem.

Security is also a critical issue in the multi-chain EVM ecosystem. The industry has faced ongoing security threats, with crypto hackers stealing substantial sums in 2022. Many of these hacks could have been prevented with proper security measures. Token bridges, often used to increase Total Value Locked (TVL) and active wallets, pose significant security risks, with over $2 billion stolen in bridge hacks in 2022 alone.

To enhance security, L1X provides real-time bad node detection through hierarchical temporal memory builds, eliminating the need for token bridges.

Scalability and decentralization are further challenges for blockchain networks. L1X aims to address these issues by offering solutions that broaden the scope for future builders. It emphasizes that EVM compatibility is not the sole path forward.

Furthermore, L1X facilitates native cross-chain communication across its network, enabling asset swaps, token transfers, NFT transactions, and smart contract interactions, regardless of the virtual machine used.

The NFT space within Web3 continues to grow rapidly, especially in gaming. L1X’s X-Talk simplifies blockchain transitions for NFT enthusiasts across different networks, offering greater accessibility and timely capital deployment.

In conclusion, while EVM compatibility is significant, L1X and its X-Talk service provide superior access to all blockchains, irrespective of user asset preferences. The blockchain industry is evolving, and solutions like L1X are shaping the future of interoperability.

About L1X:
L1X has been developed in collaboration with industry and academic partners to address critical gaps in current blockchain constructs. The L1X Foundation in Switzerland is building L1X to facilitate an interoperable, decentralized internet. L1X believes that the current chaotic battle royale of competing trustless chains and protocols must find an equitable accord.
