- Ethereum Virtual Machine
The decentralized computing platform which forms the core of the Ethereum platform. The environment in which EDCCs are executed. Each Ethereum node contains its own isolated implementation of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which allows programs to interact with each other without adversely altering each other or altering main blockchain operations (essentially a sandbox). However, every node also uses the same programming language (EVM bytecode), which permits them to achieve consensus for transaction validation. For more info visit our Resources section on Ethereum.
