Virtual Machine (VM)

From CryptoWiki

A virtual machine (VM) is a software program or operating system that not only exhibits the behavior of a separate computer, but is also capable of performing tasks such as running applications and programs like a separate computer.

In blockchain the most known is the Ethereum Virtual Machine, but many other projects are also creating their own.

Move has seen a rise through Sui and Aptos.

A comparison on multiple different VMs can be read here (4-2024).
