It is the next-gen runtime for the Ethereum 2.0 ecosystem and is also supported by the Polkadot, CyberMiles, Ethereum Classic, and other public blockchains. On the Oasis Network, the SSVM Ewasm runtime will operate in parallel along other ParaTimes connected to the Oasis Network and provide an easy-to-use development environment for smart contracts written in Solidity, YUL, Vyper, Rust, and other common blockchain programming languages. The SSVM is also a powerful runtime for general cloud computing applications. …
