I recently came across a comment from Vitalik Buterin on reddit where he said that the EVM will eventually either become a sidechain or a contract written in EWASM. The comment can be found here
even the EVM itself will eventually become either a sidechain or a contract written in E-WASM as the rest of the chain implements EWASM
That was quite a surprise to me. Does that mean that we won't be able to write contracts with Solidity in the future and basically have to switch to Rust or C++? Then why is there even work on Py-EVM if it is going to be deprecated?
