The Telos EVM launch is more of a process than a one-off event. Each step we take brings us closer to mass adoption of the Telos EVM, but that’s good news for our Telos community. It means we’re gearing up for another exciting month and beyond as we move through milestones like finalized contracts, deployment, and onboarding, among others.

What Makes the Telos EVM So Powerful?

Telos EVM is an Ethereum virtual machine that runs Solidity contracts on Telos just like Ethereum. But the Telos EVM is much faster and has higher capacity. Even better, it costs around 1/100 of the cost of Ethereum gas fees and has no front running.  

Developers deploy their Solidity smart contracts to Telos EVM without needing to modify the code. This is a huge deal for Ethereum-based dApps that cannot support the enormous gas fees that DeFi projects generate on Ethereum. The Telos EVM will be a godsend allowing them to continue to operate at a tiny fraction of the expense.

Unlike other scalable EVMs, which are a fork of the original Go Ethereum (GETH) code, the Telos EVM is an entirely new EVM. The Telos Core Devs have worked tirelessly to redesign this code from the ground up on much faster technology.  

Because of this, the Telos EVM will outmaneuver the same scaling issues other EVMs face. The Telos EVM will also reveal internal transactions and should deliver all the same information users would expect of any EVM.  

Being so unique, the launch is also a different process. That’s why we brought in some industry experts, Sentnl, who have facilitated an in-depth audit. Their audit for the Telos EVM led to the discovery of a security vulnerability in the original Go Ethereum (Geth) code. This highlights the skills and strength of the Sentnl audit as well as the high degree of professionalism and quality control involved in the making on the Telos EVM.
