Polygon Labs has recommended that the Celo blockchain group take into account using its Chain Improvement Equipment (CDK) to streamline the meant layer-2 migration on the Ethereum community.
The proposal comes after cLabs, the first growth workforce behind Celo, unveiled an alternate technique in July to transition its layer-1 into an Ethereum-compatible layer-2 answer by using Optimism’s OP Stack. OP Stack is an identical customizable toolkit that leverages Optimism’s “optimistic” know-how.
Transfer to Ethereum Layer-2 Through Polygon CDK
Polygon Labs’ co-founder Sandeep Nailwal introduced a proposal to the Celo group this week recommending that the blockchain ecosystem take into account implementing Polygon’s Chain Improvement Equipment, which is a codebase enabling builders to construct custom-made layer-2 chains leveraging zero-knowledge (ZK) know-how.
The proposal on the Celo governance discussion board said,
“Polygon Labs is happy to welcome Celo dwelling to Ethereum within the chain’s transition from an impartial EVM-compatible L1 to an Ethereum L2. As Ethereum devotees obsessive about scaling, we’re past excited to see Celo broaden into an rising and thriving Ethereum ecosystem and assist lengthen Ethereum blockspace.”
Nailwal defined that this shift would allow Celo to totally leverage the advantages of working as an Ethereum layer-2 answer whereas preserving the elemental traits that originally propelled the chain to success.
The exec additional emphasised that the transition represents a big technical enhancement, “that ought to include built-in Ethereum alignment and as-close-as-possible developer expertise, with out compromising safety.”
The Polygon CDK toolkit was launched in August, designed to permit builders to construct blockchain networks with the assistance of ZK proofs. This open-source codebase presents builders the flexibility to interconnect chains by way of a ZK-based bridge, making a unified ecosystem known as the “Worth Layer.”
Subsequently, Cosmos-based layer-1 blockchain, Canto, announced migrating to a zero-knowledge layer-2 on Ethereum by way of Polygin CDK. The platform defined that this transition is in keeping with its goals to construct a blockchain devoted to real-world belongings(RWA).
In addition to Canto, pther tasks comparable to Astar, Gnosis, and IDEX, have already introduced plans to construct ZK layer-2 options using the toolkit.
