SIX Protocol is a blockchain built using the Cosmos SDK, which is an initial blockchain with a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus that secures blockchain applications on top of CometBFT (also known as Tendermint BFT).
After Proposal 6 passed on both Sixnet (mainnet) and Fivenet (testnet), the SIX Protocol now supports EVM-compatible Solidity, and all EVM tools work out of the box.
To understand how the Cosmos chain is able to use EVM, you can check out the project called Ethermint.
What is evm? The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) is a software environment that operates on the Ethereum network and enables the execution of smart contracts.
The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) runs smart contracts written in Solidity, which is the main programming language used for writing smart contracts on the Ethereum network. The EVM also manages the state of the Ethereum network, including account balances, transactions, and contract execution.
SIX Network is committed to providing benefits to developers who contribute to the SIX Protocol. Most smart contract developers are familiar with the Solidity language and EVM tools such as Hardhat, Truffle, and Remix IDE.
