The Celestia community will combine with Polygon’s chain improvement equipment (CDK) someday “early subsequent yr,” in response to a Dec. 11 announcement. The mixing will present an “easily-pluggable part” for Polygon-based networks to make use of Celestia for information availability.
The announcement claimed that transaction charges could possibly be diminished by greater than 100 occasions if networks saved compressed transaction information on Celestia as a substitute of Ethereum. The mixing coming in early 2024 will simplify this selection, offering this feature throughout the Polygon CDK software program itself.
“That is the broadband second for Web3,” mentioned Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal. “The power to launch a high-throughput ZK-powered Ethereum layer 2 as simply as deploying a wise contract will do for blockchain adoption what high-speed fiber did for Web2 purposes.”
Polygon CDK software program permits builders to create new blockchain networks which are a part of a broader Polygon ecosystem. It’s presently being utilized by OKX, Astar, Canto, Gnosis Pay, Palm and IDEX, in response to the announcement.
Some Polygon-based networks, together with Polygon zero-knowledge Ethereum Digital Machine, are “rollups” that retailer transaction information instantly on the Ethereum community. Others are “validiums” that solely retailer validation proofs on Ethereum whereas leaving the precise compressed transaction information on a separate community. Apart from Celestia, Avail is one other community that can store transaction data for validiums.
