New Chain Development Kit from Polygon
Polygon Labs has launched its Chain Development Kit (CDK), a software tool designed to help developers create Ethereum Layer 2 chains powered by zero-knowledge proofs. The toolkit will support an "Interop Layer," a new protocol that aggregates zero-knowledge proofs from multiple Polygon chains and secures them on the Ethereum mainnet. This move aligns with Polygon's shift towards creating more interconnected chains, similar to ecosystems like Cosmos and Polkadot.
StarkWare & Herodotus Break Ethereum Data Barriers
London's Herodotus, in collaboration with StarkWare, has launched an "on-chain accumulator" tool that lets users read and verify any part of Ethereum's history. This tackles Ethereum's current limitation of validating only the last 256 blockhashes. The tool uses "storage proofs," a cryptographic method, to confirm the validity of data. This could be a game-changer for creating permissionless account recovery systems and insurance protocols that rely on historical on-chain data.
