- Eclipse introduces L2 architecture: combines the Solana Virtual Machine (SVM) with Ethereum to optimize transaction speed and robustness.
- Execution Optimization with Solana: Introducing the Solana execution environment that benefits from parallel execution and reduced fees.
- MetaMask Snaps integration: Seamless transition for EVM users to the SVM chain without switching wallets, improving user experience.
The cryptocurrency world received an exciting update on September 19th when Eclipse unveiled its revolutionary L2 architecture. This new framework integrates the Solana Virtual Machine (SVM) while running within the Ethereum infrastructure, combining the best of both worlds: the speed of Solana and the robustness of Ethereum.
Solana and Ethereum: A combination for the future
This innovative L2 architecture is tasked with changing the scalability landscape of cryptocurrencies. By addressing key elements such as settlement over Ethereum and execution over SVM, it promises to bring significant changes to the way transactions are settled. Additionally, collaboration with Celestia on data availability and use of RISC Zero for testing demonstrates Eclipse’s holistic approach.
A Shift in Execution: From EVM to SVM
Eclipse has decided to adopt the Solana execution environment in this new architecture, a move aimed at optimizing parallel execution and thus reducing the exorbitant fees caused by high-demand applications. This optimization is possible thanks to Solana’s parallelized capacity.
On the other hand, despite using SVM, the Eclipse core network is still powered by Neon EVM, ensuring full compatibility with EVM. This is critical to maintaining the versatility and familiarity of the platform, as Eclipse highlights by noting that each Neon EVM instance maintains its own local tariff market, allowing applications to provision contracts without impacting the user experience.
In addition, Eclipse announced the use of the Solang compiler, which facilitates the conversion of Solidity code to SVM bytecode, increasing the interoperability and flexibility of the system.
Seamless user integration with MetaMask Snaps
To provide users with a seamless transition, Eclipse will integrate MetaMask’s new technology called MetaMask Snaps. This tool allows EVM users to join the SVM chain without having to switch wallets, optimizing the user experience and driving adoption of the new architecture.
Advances in data availability and verification
By collaborating with Celestia, Eclipse raises the bar on data availability, resulting in improved transactions per second (TPS) performance. In addition, the architecture will introduce a verification system similar to Anatoly’s fraud-proof SIMD, ensuring the security and integrity of transactions in the SVM.
In summary, Eclipse is redefining the universe of L2 scalability with this new proposal. By integrating market-leading technologies and focusing on user experience, the future of cryptocurrency transactions promises to be faster, safer and more efficient.
