Aion FastVM

Aion FastVM is an enhanced Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), featuring 128-bit data word size for better performance. It uses LLVM JIT as execution engine and runs decentralized application at native speed.

Due to the architecture change, the instruction set and the energy cost of each instruction has been modified. In addition, we've updated the solidity compiler so that it can generate code for Aion FastVM.

See more at the Wiki page.

Prerequisites

Operating system: Ubuntu 16.04 or above

Build FastVM

sudo apt install build-essential llvm-4.0-dev
make

Build Solidity compiler

cd solidity
sudo apt install build-essential libboost-all-dev libjsoncpp-dev
make

Benchmark

Test code:

/*
 * trivial code to compute the sum of 1, 2, ..., 1024.
 */
uint8_t const code[] = {
    0x60, 0x00, // push i

    0x5b,
    0x80, // copy i
    0x61, 0x04, 0x00, // push 1024
    0x10, // 1024 < i
    0x60, 0x19, 0x57, // jump if true

    0x80, // copy i
    0x60, 0xE0, 0x51, // mload sum
    0x01, // sum += i
    0x60, 0xE0, 0x52, // mstore sum
    0x60, 0x01, // push 1
    0x01, // i += 1
    0x60, 0x02, 0x56, // jump

    0x5b,
    0x60, 0x10, 0x60, 0xE0, 0xF3 // RETURN (change 0x10 to 0x20 for 256-bit vm)
};
