Build and combine battle-tested SDK modules to customize your blockchain for specific user requirements.
What is an SDK
Software Development Kit or SDK is a package of tools and data that allows programmers to create a specific language for a specific platform or application and thus get all the information behind a blockchain (or any other tech, depending on the sphere) application. In this sense, it is an important element in the world of big data for businesses, as it allows you to turn an ordinary code package into a model for modifying blockchains and finally monetize all the data required. The composition of the SDK varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but the standard component that almost all include is the API (Application Programming Interfaces), the interface where the code generated by the application is stored.
What does the SDK consist of
SDK platform tools is nothing more than a toolkit that includes the elements necessary for a developer to create an application in a specific environment. In our case: Decimal blockchain. The contents of this development kits are always depends on the vendor, but most of the ecosystem we can find the following:
- Code snippets to speed up code writing
- Test or analyze code
- Network protocols
What does the Decimals SDK consist of?
- Golang for creating replicated finite state machines
- Ruby-on-Rails for blockchain
- Tendermint for consensus and networking
Features of the DecimalChain SDK
Once we open one, we see that it is very organized and well differentiated, why? Mostly for the following:
- It is designed for developers to use it without complications.
- It comes with documentation to explain to the developer how the code or a tool works.
- It offers functionality characterized by a goal: to create a public or private application for a specific purpose.
These are general characteristics, so it is clear that there are SDKs more difficult to handle than others, such as better/worse integration.
Benefits of Building Crypto SDKs with Decimals Chain
Access to pre-built components
The SDK provides easy access to pre-built components, reducing the time spent on software development.
Application-specific blockchain developers can now work with a new consensus mechanism such as Tendermint BFT. Compared to Proof-of-Work (used in most virtual machine blockchains today), it provides a significant increase in performance as it is fast and secure (PoW is still possible to change due to the 51% attack).
SDKs provide easier integration with different software and applications. They also provide direct access to the required information through appropriate documentation.
Provide shortcuts to developers
SDKs allow developers to reuse code threads as it shortens the development cycle. This gives developers enough time to focus on important tasks.
SDKs are included with built-in code expertise (support), including full documentation. Therefore, developers don't need to look for subject matter experts to solve their issues.
The factors mentioned above help to negate the excessive costs incurred in the software development and post-deployment phases.
SDK vs API
The SDK can contain everything you need to communicate with other software (such as one or more APIs), as well as materials that you can use to create a completely new application (such as code libraries, debugging tools, technical notes, etc.). and documentation). Consequently, the SDK may contain one or more APIs and a few basic utilities. The APIs are only part of the SDK. The SDK is like a larger "shell" for the entire SDK toolkit.
An Application Programming Interface (API) is essentially code that provides a well-defined link between two separate applications. An API passes a request from your application to another piece of software and then returns the response to the other application. A simple example: The order book of any crypto exchange is connected to it through an API, so that it can update in real time the data regarding all price fluctuations.
To summarize, We can say that they serve different purposes:
- An SDK is a set of tools for developing an application.
- The API allows you to link that application to another application.
The API does not create an application from scratch but is an interface to a service, while the SDK is a set of tools, components or codes that we use to create an application
DecimalСhain is a blockchain that helps to create and integrate dApps, smart contracts and tokens (including NFT) on the most popular protocol IBC (INTER‑BLOCKCHAIN COMMUNICATION). Dapps, smart contracts and tokens created on decimal are automatically supported by IBC infrastructure. It means they can interact with Cosmos, BSC, Thorchain, Osmosis and Secret. More broadly, the Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol allows blockchains to connect to each other.
SDK security is the process of protecting the environment from attacks. Just as applications, networks and servers can be attacked, SDK can contain vulnerabilities and fall victim to a variety of threats. More broadly, SDK security is a key component of the whole application security. Most modern web applications environments rely on SDK to be developed, and code builds inside pose an additional risk to the created application by allowing third parties to access it. Decimals ensure that our SDK platforms tools are regularly audited by third-party companies. Moreover, each SDK module can be run in a sandbox to prevent possible security costs and ensure full securitization of each blockchain layer. Decimals can ensure, that security is on a high level due to the following facts:
- Developers can choose proven programming languages when building their blockchains for specific applications, as opposed to smart contract programming languages, which are in many ways inferior.
- The Application Blockchain Interface layer or ABCI layer facilitates dApp replication with different programming languages. Since this layer is not limited to a single language, developers can create applications on their blockchain in their preferred language. In addition, ABCI acts as a bridge between Tendermint Core and Decimals SDK, facilitating communication between them.
Developers are not limited to the cryptographic functions provided by the underlying virtual machines. They can use their own cryptography and rely on well-tested cryptographic libraries
How you can use the Decimal SDK
Given that Decimals is a seamless ecosystem, it allows a range of different blockchain applications to be built on its base.
Open Finance Apps
In a decentralized world where the transfer of money is not controlled by banks, value can be transferred in new ways that are not constrained by centralized authorities. With the Open Finance infrastructure, a system developed with Decimals SDK is aggregated and moves in different ways in one way or another, which no one but the market itself can influence. Fiat crypto exchanges become starting points that convert analog liquidity into digital liquidity. New forefronts on the crypto markets, such as Binance, Raydium or Coinbase created a new reality, where the people themselves become de facto banks in these new ecosystems. With the help of Open Finance SDK from Decimals, all Financial apps can become a reality.
The Decimals platform includes the ability to create crypto wallets through its SDK. It includes a cryptocurrency wallet API and allows the creation of multi cryptocurrency wallets. The multi cryptocoin wallet market is big enough, and implementing additional features or developing new ones is much easier with a package of predefined packages that Decimals Chain can provide, as it offers most modern crypto wallet development services on the market.
Simply put, we can define GameFi as a combination of video games and decentralized finance (DeFi). These games use blockchain technology, which allows players to be the sole and verified owners of virtual game elements. Traditional video games are dominated by the "pay-to-win" model, in which players have to pay in order to get some kind of advantage, such as an upgrade in a category, a shorter wait time or the purchase of a virtual item. GameFi, on the other hand, presents a "play to earn" model. In this case, it is the players who earn money through their knowledge or invested time. With the Decimals SDK, it will be possible for your developers to create any kind of game that will allow you to enter the market.
Prediction markets are blockchain apps designed to trade the results of events. Market prices can indicate what the crowd thinks the probability of an event is. There are many solutions to arrange a kind of economic totalizer and Decimals SDK allows its customers to cover these markets as well.
In order to provide more liquidity and dynamism to the financial markets, some of the world's major exchanges have decided to create a figure known as a market maker. Market makers are individuals who are responsible for providing liquidity to both sides of the market by registering their interest in buying and selling a given asset in the order book. Recently, new types of decentralized exchanges have been developed that function as automated market makers. These decentralized exchanges, such as Uniswap or Curve combine the liquidity of various assets into liquidity pools with specific instructions on the terms of trade of those assets. In other words, in these DEXs liquidity providers can deposit certain assets so that other users can trade between those assets. Thanks to the Decimals SDK you will be able to fully enable aMM technology on your side.
