Polygon (MATIC) Releasing Development Kit For Ethereum-Connected Chains

Safe to say, Polygon has been on a tear lately. On the heels of a DappRadar report noting more than 75,000 active users and nearly $1B in value flows through their layer 2 protocol, the Polygon team has announced a new developer SDK for streamlined app creation. In the past month, our team at NewsBTC anticipated continued success for MATIC, and now the protocol is unleashing more developer-friendly materials.

Polygon’s SDK

Polygon-tracked apps continue to grow with regards to DeFi and Exchange-related categories. Today’s announcement will allow developers to continue that growth. Polygon announced that they will be launching a new software development kit (or SDK) for developers to unleash their own Ethereum-connected blockchains. The SDK will include a number of different plug-and-play modules and the team has stated it was designed to reflect a “Polkadot on Ethereum” approach.

The SDK is set to include modules like consensus, synchronization, TxPool, JSON RPC and gRPC. An initial version of the SDK will allow developers to create standalone chains with complete interoperability with Ethereum; a following version of the kit will enable dev teams to create layer 2 protocols directly connected to Ethereum mainnet.

The Perspective

Compatibility with Ethereum as the protocol optimizes is clearly top of mind for the Polygon team. While scalability for Ethereum is a major talking point, Polygon is at the forefront of the conversation in terms of protocols addressing scalability concerns, while still looking to implement interoperability. In a statement surrounding the SDK’s release, co-founder Sandeep Nailwal noted that “with advanced ‘layer 2’ 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…
