Overview

zkEVM Chain is fully compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) via the Ethermint module, which means you can utilize the same tools (Solidity, Remix, Oracles, etc.) and APIs (such as Ethereum JSON-RPC) that are available on other EVM chains like Ethereum. Unlike building on zkEVM Chain Core, deploying smart contracts and applications on zkEVM Chain is permissionless. This enables any developer to:
  • build EVM-based dApps that interact with zkEVM Chain Core modules and zkEVM Chain's unique EVM builtin contracts
  • quickly build and deploy forks of EVM-based dApps onto zkEVM Chain
  • create dApps that use Web3 wallets (e.g. Metamask) to interface with zkEVM Chain Core modules
