Polygon announced the launch of its SDK stack, which will allow developers to easily launch their own blockchains with Ethereum connection. SDKs, or software development kits, are one-time installation packages that contain the tools you need to build applications seamlessly.
As announced on Wednesday, Polygon’s development kit includes several out-of-the-box modules with custom solutions for parameters such as consensus and timing.
In addition to consensus and synchronization, the polygon kit also contains other modules such as TxPool, JSON RPC and gRPC. As part of the announcement, Polygon revealed that its development tools were designed to reflect an approach “Polkadot on Ethereum”, You could see the emergence of a multi-chain network for Ethereum.
The Polygon SDK will appear to exist in two iterations: The first version will allow developers to create independent chains that are fully compatible with the Ethereum network. In the second iteration of the Polygon SDK, development teams can create true Layer 2 protocols that are directly connected to the Ethereum backbone.
Beyond these two iterations, Polygon developers are also interested in enabling open source collaboration for the kit. The announcement of the release indicates that there are plans to develop a plug-in framework that will allow developers to add additional modules to the Polygon SDK.
According to Sandeep Nailwal, The Polygon Development Kit, co-founder of Polygon, will play an important role in the future of Ethereum’s multi-chain efforts as well as Layer 2 advancement.
“With advanced ‘Layer 2’ solutions, where Ethereum 2.0 will be fully or shortly available, the need for a comprehensive interoperability framework is greater than ever. With the Polygon Software Development Kit we are solving urgent requirements for the future of Ethereum in multiple chains, including ease of start-up and communication between Layer 2 solutions. “
Polygon, formerly known as Matic, has been enjoying increasing popularity recently, especially as a key platform for scaling Ethereum. Earlier this month, Cointelegraph reported that the protocol’s user base has grown by 75,000 as more users interact with decentralized polygon-based applications.
Polygon’s meteoric rise also caught the attention of billionaire Mark Cuban. As the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, he identified the speed of the protocol and growing user base as top selling points.
