Arianee, a Luxury Brand Blockchain Platform, Releases L2 on Polygon with Scale in Mind

Arianee, a blockchain infrastructure supplier for luxury brands, has created a new layer 2 built on Polygon to expand its digital product passport platform, which is utilized by numerous luxury brands and businesses.

Since early 2023, Arianee has been working on the optimized layer 2 using Polygon’s Chain Development Kit, which is driven by zero-knowledge proof technology. Pierre-Nicolas Hurstel, co-founder and CEO of Arianee, discussed the company’s redesigned infrastructure, which enables developers and businesses to create extremely adaptable, affordable, and efficient digital tokens and passports connected to tangible goods.

We only develop on Ethereum Virtual Machines (EVMs) to support scalable and enterprise use cases. According to Hurstel, “it remains difficult and risky to build on L1 or even on Polygon mainnet when striving to deliver a service that operates seamlessly, universally, and with predictable costs.”

According to the CEO of Arianee, the company’s primary goal is to assist businesses working on projects that are scalable, high-performing, and evolving and that “require an environment allowing precise control over efficiency in terms of both costs and energy consumption.”

Payments within the Polygon CDK application-specific chain (appchain) will be made with Arianee’s native protocol token, which is bridged to the Ethereum mainnet’s Aria20 ERC-20 token. Brands will have direct access to build and administer their own digital product passports and loyalty tokens with the introduction of the layer-2 appchain.

Presently, Arianee provides infrastructure for over forty companies, such as Lacoste, Breitling, Yves Saint Laurent, and Moncler. High-end watch companies such as Breitling provide blockchain-based proof of ownership to their owners through the issuance of digital product passports.

As nonfungible tokens (NFTs), these digital passports offer programmable utility for their physical equivalents. Owners can communicate with manufacturers to arrange and oversee product repairs, warranties, insurance, and other services. They also own and control their data.

ZK-proof technology is expected to drive increased scalability and performance from Polygon’s CDK. Brands that issue NFTs and digital passports based on Ethereum’s ERC-721 token standard can also use Polygon CDK to connect their current infrastructure to Arianee’s protocol.

Block space allocated to specific apps on the protocol is another feature that makes the new layer-2 capabilities appealing. This is said to lessen the negative effects of heavy network traffic on user experience. The scalability infrastructure of Polygon also lowers the running expenses of services and apps related to gas prices and the implementation of smart contracts.

Zero-knowledge proof (ZK-proofs) layer-2 capabilities can be unlocked by ecosystem chains such as optimistic rollups thanks to a new Type 1 prover that Polygon released in February. The method is open-source and allows for almost free generation of ZK-proofs for Ethereum mainnet blocks.
