What is Neon EVM?
Neon is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) on Solana that brings Ethereum compatibility to the Solana blockchain, enabling simultaneous access to the familiar tooling and infrastructure of Ethereum and the speed and low transaction cost of Solana.
Neon EVM provides a low-friction solution to enable Ethereum dApps to function within Solana, eliminating the gap between two leading blockchains. Neon EVM positions Ethereum developers to enjoy the best of Solana’s network, from low fees to high transaction speeds, and parallel transaction execution capabilities.
While Solana has been one of the fastest, organically-growing chains, its incompatibility with EVM has left several hundred million in TVL, millions of users, and an entire ecosystem untouched by EVM Multichain dApp developers – until now. Neon EVM’s pioneering solution is the anticipated innovation in the Solana ecosystem and makes Solana a viable option for multichain builders. Neon EVM brings together the best of both chains while keeping user security and safety paramount.
