Getting Started

Looking to build a dApp on Evmos? Following this documentation and our academy you can learn how and become part of the rich ecosystem of EVM builders on Cosmos. Whether you are building new use cases on Evmos or porting an existing dApp from another chain, you'll want to check out the sections on

  1. Building and deploying EVM Smart Contracts
  2. Integrating wallets (e.g. Keplr and MetaMask) into your Frontend
  3. Available developer Tools

Why develop dApps on Evmos?

The Evmos Core Development Team is on a mission to provide the foundational tools necessary for building the cross-chain applications of the future, freeing developers from the confines of today’s siloed blockchains.

Evmos focuses on cross-chain innovation so that developers can build entirely new dApp experiences for their users. Deploying smart contracts on Evmos is easy, as the Evmos blockchain is fully compatible with Ethereum and its rich ecosystem of robust tooling, wallets, explorers, a surplus of assets, and intelligent end-users. At the same time, Evmos allows developers to build scalable EVM dApp chains with the upcoming Evmos SDK and it hosts one of the most active community governance that seeks fairness across all key actors (users, builders, and validators).

Evmos does this by leveraging the interoperability of the Cosmos Ecosystem and the market-dominating support for EVM development. This allows dApp developers to use Ethereum smart contracts to implement the business logic on-chain while having access to Cosmos chain functionalities, such as exchanging value with the rest of the Cosmos Ecosystem through the Inter Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC).


You can also contribute to the Evmos ecosystem without building a dApp. Head over to tools to learn how to contribute as a full-stack developer by building new dev tools or protocol to help out building the core protocol.
