Witness Chain has announced plans to develop the DePIN Coordination Layer (DCL) with the help of the Polygon CDK (Chain Development Kit). There are multiple functions that the DCL is intended to fulfill. To start with, it opens the door for the development of composite DePIN DApps, which combine DeFi and DePIN to provide fresh software.

Furthermore, it grants DePIN nodes the capability to be programmed, which facilitates the trading of futures market resources including computation, electricity, bandwidth, and storage. Thirdly, it applies rollups and dual staking to DePIN.

Over and above that, the DCL encourages on-chain asset listing, as well as reaching consensus on real-world situations involving DePIN nodes. In addition, it streamlines the bridging procedure and supports optimistic rollups by aggregating Rollup Watchtower proofs on AggLayer.

Polygon CDK’s qualities make it an ideal candidate for the DePIN Coordination Layer. Firstly, it offers Ethereum Security by utilizing Ethereum’s strong security measures and settling proofs on the Ethereum network. Secondly, it facilitates interoperability, which means that CDK chains can exchange data and interact with one another without any hitches using AggLayer. This allows for the easy use of proofs on the Witness Chain’s DCL layer within other chains. Additionally, CDK provides gas customization services.

The Polygon Chain Development Kit (CDK) is an open-source, modular software toolkit that developers can use to build new L2 chains on Ethereum that are zero-knowledge proof (zkEVM) with optional validium.
