EON is compatible with EVM Paris. You must use compiler versions up to v0.8.19. Otherwise, the deployment will fail. The next release of EON will port EVM Shanghai compatibility and will be announced at a future date.

EON is Horizen's Ethereum Virtual Machine. EON has adopted Ethereum’s Account-based transaction model to represent assets as balances within accounts. The Account model, in VM capable blockchains, differentiate account types on whether they represent a normal account balance or an account which is bound to some code that has to be executed by the VM (Virtual Machine). The conventional terminology to differentiate those is:

  • Externally Owned Account (EOA)
  • Contract account

In both cases, the account has a balance.
