CDK

Polygon Chain Development Kit (CDK) is a versatile, open source software toolkit designed to empower blockchain developers with the ability to deploy and configure a wide range of chain architectures. With Polygon CDK, we are able to effortlessly launch Lumia L2 chain powered by Polygon zkEVM technology.

One of the key strengths of Polygon CDK lies in its flexibility. Thus, gives us the freedom to choose a chain architecture that aligns perfectly with our specific requirements from a curated set of supported, open source components. Polygon CDK supports two primary configuration options: zkEVM rollups and validiums. zkEVM rollups seamlessly post transaction data from Polygon CDK i.e. Lumia L2 directly onto the Ethereum blockchain while validiums optimize storage by posting only transaction hashes and storing the actual transaction data off-chain. In Lumia L2 we swap out validium to EigenDA for a much more decentralised architecture in general.

Polygon CDK brings a host of features that will significantly benefit the development and scaling of Lumia L2:

  1. Modularity and sovereignty: Polygon CDK provides a modular environment for designing ZK-powered L2 chains, empowering Lumia team to customize chain according to our specific needs.

  2. Scalability: Lumia L2 chain developed using Polygon CDK offers enhanced transaction speed and can be multiplied to create an elastically scalable ecosystem.

  3. Independent data availability: Polygon CDK features a dedicated data availability layer and a data availability committee, ensuring robust off-chain data access and reliability. This structure, operating independently of Ethereum, guarantees substantial data resilience and integrity. Although in Lumia L2 we will not leverage this feature as we will plug in and integrate EigenDA.

  4. Interoperability (forthcoming): Through an in-development interoperability layer, AggLayer, Lumia L2 will enable seamless atomic L2 <> L2 transactions. Lumia coupled with native Lumia Stream will tap into vast range of cross-chain options.

  5. Near-instant finality: By relying on cryptographic security, Lumia L2 using Polygon CDK ensures transaction integrity without the need for full nodes. This approach guarantees near-instant finality and robust security.

  6. Extensive Web3 support: Polygon CDK chains benefit from a comprehensive ecosystem with premium service providers offering essential tools for application integration, development, and deployment.

In summary, Polygon CDK is a game-changing toolkit that empowers developers to build and scale innovative L2 chains, such as Lumia L2, with unparalleled flexibility, scalability, and interoperability. By leveraging the power of Polygon zkEVM technology and the robust features of Polygon CDK, Lumia L2 is poised to revolutionize the blockchain landscape and unlock new possibilities for developers and users alike.
