Shaping the future of blockchain: Top 10 most popular EVM chains 

As blockchain technology evolves, so does the Ethereum network—the world’s leading programmable blockchain. However, Ethereum’s limitations in terms of scalability and transaction costs have become evident as the platform has gained mainstream traction. To address these challenges, EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible chains have emerged, promising enhanced performance and lower transaction fees while maintaining compatibility with Ethereum’s ecosystem.

In this comprehensive overview, we delve into the top 10 EVM-compatible chains that are capturing the industry’s attention and discover Fluid3, an innovative liquidity layer designed to bring seamless efficiency to EVM chains.

Top 10 EVM-Compatible Chains you should know about

Binance Smart Chain (BSC)

Developed by Binance, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, BSC aims to offer a more efficient alternative to Ethereum. Prioritizing low transaction fees and high-speed smart contract execution, BSC has seen rapid adoption thanks to its compatibility with Ethereum’s toolset.

Oasis Network
