Celestia to integrate with Polygon CDK for data availability in 2024

Integration with Polygon CDK

Celestia’s integration with Polygon’s chain development kit (CDK) is expected to take place in early 2024, providing an “easily-pluggable component” for Polygon-based networks to use Celestia for data availability. According to the announcement, this integration could reduce transaction fees by more than 100 times if networks store compressed transaction data on Celestia instead of Ethereum.

Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal commented on the upcoming integration, saying “This is the broadband moment for Web3. The ability to launch a high-throughput ZK-powered Ethereum layer 2 as easily as deploying a smart contract will do for blockchain adoption what high-speed fiber did for Web2 applications.”

The Polygon CDK software is already being used by OKX, Astar, Canto, Gnosis Pay, Palm and IDEX, and it allows developers to create new blockchain networks that are part of a broader Polygon ecosystem.

Gnosis Crypto, Data Crypto, and Chain Crypto are all part of Polygon-based networks. These networks, including Polygon’s zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine, are “rollups” that store transaction data directly on the Ethereum network. Alternatively, “validiums” store validation proofs on Ethereum while compressing the actual transaction data onto a separate network. Avail and Celestia are two networks that offer validiums and store transaction data.
