- Polygon has just announced the release of the first version of its Polygon SDK.
- The SDK enables developers to deploy Ethereum-compatible chains.
Polygon, a full-stack scaling solution network, has officially announced the release of the first version of its Polygon SDK. Specifically, this technology of Polygon enables developers to quickly deploy Ethereum-compatible chains using the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). Best of all, the release of Polygon’s SDK technology marks the start of Ethereum’s natural transition into a multi-chain ecosystem system.
Furthermore, Polygon SDK is also designed to provide easy deployment of Ethereum-connected chains and secure messaging between different components of Ethereum-based multi-chain networks. Indeed, the SDK technology of Polygon really embraces the Ethereum blockchain and its community.
Co-Founder of Polygon Sandeep Nailwal reacted to this news saying:
Sandeep added that the Polygon network fully supports the Ethereum technology enhancements. “With advanced layer-two solutions, Ethereum 2.0 all coming online now or soon, the need for a comprehensive interoperability framework is stronger than ever. With the Polygon SDK, we are solving pressing needs for Ethereum’s multi-chain future, including ease of deployment and inter-L2 communication,” he said.
In terms of Polygon SDK developments, the first release will cover and enable the creation of stand-alone chains that are fully in charge of their own security. As a result, these chains that are deployed via the Polygon SDK will be fully interoperable with Ethereum. On the other hand, the next release of the Polygon SDK will allow developers to deploy secured chains that are fully dependent on the Ethereum layer-one.
The choice between these two types of SDK technology of Polygon depends on the user of the network. It’s up to them to choose the right SDK technology that will fit their needs. For projects with a strong community that can support a vibrant validator network, the stand-alone may be an option. However, for smaller projects, it is advisable to remain close to the Ethereum security model.
Moreover, Polygon SDK will continue to be improved by adding new consensus implementations, such as HotStuff and Tendermint, new database implementations, as well as developing use case-specific features such as inter-chain messaging, data availability services, adaptors for external blockchain networks, and more. Moreover, Polygon plans to develop a plugin framework to allow any developer to contribute new modules to the SDK.
Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium etc, and Standalone Chains like Polygon POS, designed for flexibility and independence. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 350+ Dapps, ~112M txns, and ~972K unique users.
