Polygon introduces development Kit for creating zk-powered L2s



Polygon launched the Polygon Chain Development Kit (CDK) to make it easier for developers to build Layer 2 scaling solutions on Ethereum. 

With the Polygon CDK, developers can create different layer 2 solutions that are not only interoperable with Ethereum but with other chains built on the Polygon CDK.

The Polygon CDK is a ZK-powered infrastructure as Polygon went through a recent evolution to become a fully ZK-proof platform.

According to Polygon, most web3 appchain solutions have limitations that affect the efficiency of developers. 

Some of these weaknesses include isolated liquidity, latency, and security concerns.

Other concerns are delayed finality, poor interoperability between chains, and liquidity fragmentation due to protocols settling transactions on multiple layers. 

Some protocols have resorted to building independent ecosystems, lacking access to Ethereum’s security and liquidity. 

In order to address these problems, Polygon said it is introducing this new kit as the future of the industry lies in the power of ZK-powered networks.

The development kit offers developers multiple advantages such as an option for Rollup or validium mode, the choice between zkEVM or other ZK-powered execution environments, different data sources, the ability to customize native tokens and gas tokens, flexible time for posting ZK proofs to Ethereum, and more.

Polygon 2.0

In June, Polygon launched Polygon 2.0, the next phase of its blockchain ecosystem. Polygon 2.0 is a ZK-powered protocol that aligns with the future of the internet. 

ZK-proof (Zero knowledge proof) is a system of proving validity that allows one party (the prover) to prove to another party (the verifier) that a certain statement is true, without revealing any specific details about the statement itself. 

This means that the verifier can be convinced of the statement’s truthfulness without gaining any additional information beyond the fact that the statement is indeed valid.
