In order to better support existing Ethereum dApp developers, we developed an Ethereum emulation mode for Meter. Through an addon module called webgear Meter nodes are able to understand Ethereum transaction format and support the standard Ethereum RPC interface. It is like using the Apple M1 silicon to run x86 applications with a 100x performance improvement. Developers are even able to use their preferred Ethereum development tools like
web3.js to interact with Meter. Due to the limitations of the Ethereum RPC, not all Meter functionality is available in Ethereum emulation mode. In this mode, MTRG must be treated as a special ERC20 token via a system contract.
