Ethermint is a scalable, high-throughput Proof-of-Stake blockchain that is fully compatible and interoperable with Ethereum. It's build using the the Cosmos SDK which runs on top of Tendermint Core consensus engine.
WARNING: Ethermint is under VERY ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT and should be treated as pre-alpha software. This means it is not meant to be run in production, its APIs are subject to change without warning and should not be relied upon, and it should not be used to hold any value. We will remove this warning when we have a release that is stable, secure, and properly tested.
Note: Requires Go 1.15+

these blocks using the EVM module, execute:
You may also provide a custom blockchain export file to test importing more blocks
--blockchain flag. See
