Greetings Fellow Velonians,

The months since our last Ecosystem Report have been absolutely packed with everything Velas, filled to the brim with community building and rapid global expansion, as well as intensive development and launches.

The Velas Blockchain is planned to be upgraded to Velas 3.0 on 19 of April, 2021.

The upgrade includes the following new features:

  1. Native Space based on eBPF programs (aka Solana stack)
  2. EVM Space support (aka Ethereum Virtual Machine)

During the migration, the Velas 2.0 network state will seamlessly transition into the genesis state of the EVM Space. Most of the Velas 2.0 apps (wallets, dApps, etc) should continue working as usual under the EVM Space after the transition, as EVM Space bridge RPC maintains backward compatibility with Ethereum APIs.

More info about Velas 3.0 can be read here.

Depends on how you use the Velas blockchain, you may need to take some actions:
