Ethereum virtual machine (EVM)

The Ethereum Virtual Machine(EVM) is a central component of the decentralized Ethereum platform. It executes the smart contracts that are developed on the Ethereum platform in the Solidity programming language and translated into bytecode.

The Ethereum Virtual Machine forms the runtime environment for the decentralized applications, dApps, and supports important security functions. Thus, it secures the Ethereum network against attacks such as DDoS attacks and protects the smart contracts.
