Cardanowill release a software toolkit that will enable them to deploy custom built sidechains on it.
The toolkit will allow sidechain developers to choose their own consensus mechanisms and other application-specific features while inheriting the security of the main chain. A sidechain is an independent blockchain that runs adjacent to the main blockchain, often referred to as the mainnet. Sidechains often try to add scalability to the mainnet that prioritizes decentralization and security.
Cardano Will Expand With Custom-made Sidechains
The team behind the Cardano ecosystem plans to release a software toolkit later this month that will allow developers to deploy custom-built sidechains on Cardano aimed at improving the ecosystem.
Input Output Global(IOG) announced on Jan. 12 that the official technical documentation and clarifications for the sidechain toolkit were included.
⛓️ The #Cardano sidechain toolkit was previewed at #IOScotFest, and we’re happy to share the first iteration is out now.
Here’s the lowdown on this exciting new project! https://t.co/Ny9tQuJh5K

IOG developers currently refer to it as “Proof of concept”. Ethereum Virtual Machine They use the toolkit to build an (EVM) compatible sidechain public testnet. Once the audit is complete, anyone will be able to deploy decentralized applications, create smart contracts, and move tokens between different test chains.
