CTO Of Block.one, the parent company of EOS, Daniel Larimer, has made a Twitter post claiming how the Ethereum blockchain running on a Virtual Machine (VM) on the EOS network, processes smart contract transactions over 10x faster.

Jafri’s solution to build an Ethereum Virtual Machine is part of a challenge that Block.one posed to its developers at the start of the month. The challenge presented was to build an EOS smart contract that would store and call upon Ethereum Virtual Machine’s Solidity Smart Contracts in an environment simulation of Ethereum.
Ethereum has the largest userbase in terms of being a decentralized platform for dApps and smart contracts but the blockchain has suffered numerous scalability issues, and this is what other blockchains like Tron, Cardano, and EOS are trying to solve by mimicking Ethereum environments within their own, more efficient blockchains, to process Ethereum smart contract transactions faster.
According to Larimer’s claims, Jafri’s EVM solution is extremely efficient, outclassing Ethereum’s own transactions per second (TPS) by over ten times.
Ethereum processes transactions on its chain at a rate of 10 TPS whereas, ERC20 smart contracts running on the EVM on EOSIO processes at around 1000 TPS, making the solution relatively very efficient and scalable in comparison.
The challenge contract from Block.one has a duration of 3 months for contenders to come up with solutions with grand prize money of $300,000 for the best implementation.
It is yet to be seen whether Jafri’s EVM, will keep up its strong lead until the end of the contract but Larimer’s endorsement of the idea surely is a big win for the EOS Cafe Block CEO.
