Polygon Drops Support for Polygon Edge Developer Tool

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Polygon Labs has announced the discontinuation of support for their early open source solution, Polygon Edge, which was used for building EVM-compatible networks.

According to the company’s blog, support will now be focused on their new Polygon CDK, which offers a framework for Layer 2 protocols based on zero-knowledge proofs.

The change is due to the evolving environment and the desire to support developers in building within a future unified ZK-based L2 ecosystem.

The Polygon CDK has already gained support from multiple protocols, including Immutable, Astar, Canto, Gnosis Pay, and Manta Network.

The original purpose of Polygon Edge was to enable the building of a unified ZK-based L2 system, but since its development, the company has shifted its focus to the more advanced Polygon CDK. In 2022, the Dogechain blockchain, based on Polygon Edge, was launched to support the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE).

However, due to its limitations, the Dogechain network will now transition to the new Polygon CDK, offering more possibilities for DeFi projects and NFTs.
