FuelVM: An Alternative to the Ethereum Virtual Machine

Quick Take

  • Many projects are attempting to scale Ethereum at Layer 1 or Layer 2, but few are attempting to improve upon the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) itself
  • FuelVM is one of the leading projects in this new approach to blockchain scalability – embracing a view of the future of blockchains as a modular stack rather than monolithic
  • In this approach, FuelVM would purely handle the execution of transactions while delegating the rest of the functionalities of a blockchain (e.g., consensus, data availability, settlement) to other chains
