Launch of IBC-Enabled EVM Rollup: Dymension and Evmos Core Teams Make History

• Dymension, a blockchain startup, has partnered with Evmos Core Teams and Celestia to launch the world’s first IBC-enabled EVM rollup on testnet.
• The RollApp uses Ethermint, which is an implementation of the Ethereum Virtual Machine that’s built on top of Dymension’s RollApp.
• Developers will be able to fork any EVM-based dApp and deploy it on the RollApp using Dymension’s technology.

Dymension and Evmos Core Teams Launch First IBC-Enabled EVM Rollup

Dymension is a blockchain startup developing a network of easily deployable modular blockchains called RollApps. They have announced their collaboration with Celestia and Evmos Core Teams to launch the world’s first-ever IBC-enabled EVM rollup on testnet. This deployment was made possible through close collaboration with the Evmos Core Development Team, as the RollApp uses Ethermint, an implementation of the Ethereum Virtual Machine that’s built on top of Dymension’s RollApp.

Role of IBC in EVM

The IBC-enabled EVM RollApp will be deployed within Dymension’s initial testing ground “35-C”, as part of its long-term plan to establish and bootstrap a new ecosystem of IBC-enabled rollups. The new EVM RollApp utilizes the EVMOS token as its gas token and updates its state to the Dymension Hub and posts data to Celestia’s “Mocha” testnet. In addition, it will feature a Uniswap V2 fork and a bespoke frontend as part of a proof-of concept demonstrating how anyone can deploy their own RollApp and host EVM dApps.

Benefits for Developers

Developers will be able to leverage this technology by forking any existing EVM based dApps and deploying them on this platform using Dymensions technology .Since this solution is also interoperable , developers can use it to build scalable applications that are compatible with other blockchains networks via Inter Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocols .

Comment from CEO

Commenting about this development , Yishay Harel , CEO & Co – Founder at Dimension Labs said : „Excited to have worked closely with the Evmos team to achieve this milestone . With the world’s first IBC – enabled EVN rollup now deployed on testnet , we’re one step closer to bringing scalable and interoperable blockchain solutions to wider community “

Future Plans
This is just one step in Dymention’s journey towards creating an ecosystem where developers can build & deploy easily scalable applications . They plan continue pushing boundaries of what‘ s possible with Ethereum based technologies for better adoption & growth in industry .
