Polygon Partners With Kaleido to Bring the Power of Custom Blockchains to Enterprises

Polygon is partnering with enterprise-grade Web3 infrastructure platform Kaleido to give businesses the power to build custom blockchains tailored to their needs.

Kaleido will leverage Polygon Edge, a modular framework for bootstrapping Ethereum-compatible networks, to meet surging demand from enterprises looking to launch services in Web3. Polygon Edge is available on Kaleido starting July 21. The offering will also eventually include Polygon Supernets, a fast-track for building application-specific chains, as well as other Polygon leading technologies.

Enterprises in industries ranging from financial services and supply chain to retail and health care are increasingly eager to explore what open and decentralized blockchain-based applications can do for their businesses. But launching on a public network like Ethereum is fraught with challenges that include privacy concerns and unpredictable transaction fees. The Polygon-Kaleido partnership paves the way for enterprises building bespoke blockchain with the right mix of scalability, security, cost, and openness.

“The partnership between Kaleido and Polygon is a landmark step for the Web3 space,” said Steve Cerveny, Co-Founder, and CEO of Kaleido. “It is concrete evidence that the scalability, cost, and privacy solutions of public chain ecosystems now meet the requirements of enterprises.” 

The partnership will also allow enterprises to harness Polygon’s suite of solutions that is similar to what Amazon Web Services offers Web2 developers -- a tool for every possible use case and scaling at a click of a button. For Web3, Polygon PoS already offers a carbon-neutral execution layer with low fees and high transaction throughput secured by the Ethereum mainnet. In the near future, Polygon Avail will deliver the general-purpose, scalable data availability piece of the puzzle and zero-knowledge solutions will make network congestion a thing of the past first and then tackle applications around privacy.

One of the first projects to harness Polygon Edge via Kaleido will be Core+, a stealth mode start-up with a vision to democratize trade finance accessibility. Core+ will use blockchains to provide small and medium enterprises (SMEs) access to transactional financing and related tools, which were previously inaccessible, particularly to women-owned businesses and new generations of entrepreneurs in the developing world.

“The Polygon Edge framework was designed with enterprises in mind, to help them simplify and speed up the process of building and launching their own customizable and secure Ethereum-compatible Blockchain networks,” says Antoni Martin, co-founder of Polygon Hermez. “Kaleido provides the enterprise ‘easy button’ and has the deep expertise gained from running thousands of enterprise chains over the last four years.”

Data Availability is Not Data Storage

Recall this grade school experience: you raise your hand and ask, “Can I go to the bathroom?” To which your teacher responds with “I don’t know. Can you?” Might seem far fetched, but this is a perfect entry point to understanding the difference between data availability and data storage. Let's bring this analogy close to […]

The Future is Now for Ethereum Scaling: Introducing Polygon zkEVM

We all know that Ethereum needs to scale, and we at Polygon believe that zero-knowledge (ZK) tech is the most promising pathway to get there. But that path has often seemed as if it would be long and winding. The conventional wisdom has been that the crypto space would need many years to develop Layer […]

Polygon Reaches First Sustainability Milestone by Achieving Network Carbon Neutrality

Polygon has made a major first step toward becoming carbon negative with the retirement of $400,000 in carbon credits representing 104,794 tonnes of greenhouse gasses, or the entirety of the network’s CO2 debt since inception.  The milestone comes after Polygon in mid-April released its Green Manifesto, part of its broader vision for sustainable development. The […]

Polygon Avail Launches on Testnet to Turn Monolithic Chains Modular

If we want the entire world to join Web3, blockchains will need to handle more transactions. Monolithic blockchains can’t scale because they’re asked to perform too many tasks (execution, settlement, and data availability) at once. But if chains were able to focus on just one part of the stack at a time, the entire ecosystem […]

Plonky2 is Now Open-Source

Earlier this year, Polygon announced Plonky2, a zero-knowledge proving system that represents a major breakthrough for ZK tech. Plonky2 offers two main benefits: incredibly fast proofs and extremely efficient recursive proofs. It’s a huge leap forward for the ZK space, and we’ve been blown away by the response from the developer community: people want to […]
