Hypr Network is integrating with Polygon Chain Development Kit (CDK), tapping into a zero knowledge-powered Ethereum Layer 2 to build gaming infrastructure that can scale for mass adoption.

Polygon CDK’s customizability enables gaming applications to create user experiences suited to the diverse needs of their players. Hypr will use Celestia’s high-throughput data availability (DA) layer, among the modular options offered by Polygon CDK, to become one of the fastest and most affordable gaming-focused chains.

Hypr Network, originally built with the OP Stack, was designed with enhanced data privacy and security for gaming applications in mind. As part of that mission, the team will provide several unique zero knowledge-based gaming SDKs to developers. 

Hypr joins a growing number of projects already using and testing Polygon CDK, including Libre, OKX, Astar, Canto, Gnosis Pay, Immutable, Palm Network, and IDEX. Polygon CDK makes it easy for developers to design and launch ZK L2s on Ethereum.  In the future, Polygon CDK-deployed chains can be interoperable and unified within a broader web of ZK-powered L2s in the Polygon ecosystem.

Hypr will also contribute to the Polygon CDK open-source stack with a primary focus on developing a forkable and switchable multi-backend DA service to facilitate synchronization of diverse data sets. The service will allow users to seamlessly incorporate different backends by adding a flag to DA data.

Other contributions will include expanding the precompiled contract library to include functionalities such as shuffling, anonymous transfers, and external utility functions for zero-knowledge proofs. Leveraging zkWasm support, Hypr plans to compile these precompiled contracts and use zkWasm or alternative zkISAs to generate proofs.

Hypr is working on an implementation of a cross-chain oracle that will enable the synchronization of Layer 1 contract states into Layer 2, a functionality that can be used for syncing data feeds or other relevant information between the two layers. The team also plans to introduce an onchain random number generator based on the randao library that supports a compact interface for Verifiable Random Function.

Together, we can build an equitable future for all through the mass adoption of Web3.
