A comparative analysis of distributed ledger technologies: TON vs. EVM-based blockchains
The rise of distributed ledger technology has revolutionised the way we think about decentralised systems and their applications. This article presents a comparison of two major blockchain platforms: Ethereum (as the genesis of EVM based blockchains) and TON (The Open Network). Both platforms are designed to facilitate decentralised applications and smart contracts, however they are very different in essence. The article compares the two platforms based on their architecture, consensus mechanisms, specifics of smart contract development, community support, and more. It also examines the potential applications and use cases of each platform, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. The findings aim to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of these two distributed ledger technologies, aiding businesses and developers in making informed decisions when considering the adoption of decentralised platforms for their projects.
