Ethereum Virtual Machine, or EVM, is an engine on Ethereum that runs execution and smart contract deployment. Since Ethereum is the largest decentralized blockchain with smart contract functionality, many other smart-contract blockchain networks are built with EVM-compatibility in mind. For example, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, Harmony ONE, Fantom, Moonriver, and many other blockchain networks are compatible with EVM. This means that these blockchains are inter-operable with Ethereum mainnet and Ethereum-based smart contracts can be bridged to those networks.

The Sequence Wallet is fully EVM-compatible and can support every EMV-compatible blockchain network. Currently, we fully support only Ethereum and Polygon networks, with more networks to be added in the future. Please DO NOT send any cryptocurrencies to your Sequence Wallet that are on networks other than Ethereum and Polygon until their network support is added. Doing so will render your assets inaccessible.
