ENS launches EVM gateway, already supports OP Goerli

Web3 domain service ENS has announced the launch of the EVM gateway. The EVM gateway is an open-source repository that includes a general CCIP-Read gateway framework and Solidity library, allowing L1 smart contracts to efficiently and securely retrieve and verify states from other EVM chains (L2). Developers can operate their own gateway or use existing gateways. Additionally, changing the target (the L2 to be read) is as simple as exchanging the validator contract address. Currently, the gateway is available on OP Goerli and will soon be launched on the OP mainnet.

Neon EVM plans to become the first EVM to support multi-currency gas payment

Waterfall Network completed US$2 million in financing, led by ByteTrade Lab

On November 1st, decentralized smart contract platform Waterfall Network announced the completion of a $2 million Pre-A round of financing, led by ByteTrade Lab. The company plans to use this new funding to promote the release of its mainnet in the first quarter of 2024. <br>The EVM-compatible decentralized smart contract network currently being built by Waterfall Network allows any device (including low-cost laptops and mobile phones) to run validator nodes, while also providing users with more access and full control over their data, promoting true on-chain decentralized governance.

Neo will release MEV-resistant EVM-compatible sidechains by the end of the year

On October 27th, Neo founder Da Hongfei announced at the Neo Asia-Pacific Hackathon Hong Kong Finals that Neo is creating a sidechain that can resist Miner Extractable Value (MEV) attacks and is compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). The new sidechain will inherit the NeoN3 economic model and dBFT consensus mechanism, while also having the feature of resisting malicious MEV attacks. The sidechain is currently under development and is expected to be released by the end of 2023.

Helius CEO: EVM will not maintain 95% market dominance for a long time

Helius CEO Mert Mumtaz stated that the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) will not maintain its 95% market dominance in the long term. Mumtaz believes that in any free market technology competition, leaders do not maintain their overall market advantage for long periods of time. Mumtaz said, "I have never seen a technology that occupies 95% of the market share, and people are betting that it will continue to grow (relative to market share) in the next five to ten years, even Windows did not maintain this dominant position for a long time." Mumtaz believes that the Solana Virtual Machine (SVM) and MoveVM are "objectively" better technologies than EVM, and they are also distributed through the modular theory of blockchain.

Ronin Network Launches Lucas Upgrade and Shillin Hard Fork on Mainnet

Ronin Network, a game-specific EVM blockchain, announced the launch of the Lucas (v2.6.2) upgrade and Shillin hard fork on the Ronin mainnet.
