Hop into the driver's seat with Caldera Chains

Imagine your dream car. One that can reach lightning-fast speeds, is fully tailored to fit your preferences, and is ready for both your daily commute and high-speed racing on the track.

Well, let us introduce you to Caldera, the easiest way to build and run modular rollups. Caldera chains are like that dream car you've always wanted. This bad boy can fit so much power, customization, and compatibility into its sleek design. With lightning-fast speeds, capable of processing hundreds of transactions per second and confirming them in sub-second time, Caldera Chains will revolutionize the way you build on top of blockchains.

Not only are they fast, but they're also fully customizable, offering features like address whitelisting, custom fee tokens, and custom precompiles. And to top it all off, they're compatible with standard Ethereum smart contract code. But the power and customizability of Caldera Chains don’t come at the cost of usability. We understand that choice and simplicity are important design principles when it comes to user experience; that’s why the process of using Caldera — from building and launching your dedicated rollup to building an app on top of it — is designed to be as intuitive and straightforward as possible, while still offering all the advanced features you could want.

You'll never have to sacrifice with Caldera Chains. You get both a powerful, customizable solution and a simple, easy-to-use experience.

Design Principles

We’re building Caldera to empower blockchain developers. Our platform is built with two key design principles in mind: choice and simplicity. With choice, we empower both our project partners to customize their experience according to their needs, and with simplicity, we aim to create a developer-friendly and accessible platform that abstracts away all of the usual complexity that comes with running an app-chain, making launching a blockchain as easy as deploying a smart contract.


At Caldera, we believe in empowering developers and projects with the ability to choose how they build and interact with layer-two blockchains. Caldera Chains allow developers to tailor their chains to their specific use case. These customizations include generating revenue via transaction fees, adding features to the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), and more!

The unique architecture of Caldera Chains separates the execution layer from the data availability layer. This means that developers have the freedom to choose their preferred Settlement layer and data availability solution, making the experience more personalized and flexible. For example, Caldera Chains can settle to any EVM compatible blockchain, including Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, and more. The developer can also choose to use a dedicated data availability layer such as Eigenlayer or Celestia, for improved scalability.

Caldera chains also comes with user-facing infrastructure out-of-the-box. From block explorers and NFT marketplaces to crypto faucets, developers can choose from a variety of options to create a chain that meets their users' needs.


Caldera Chains prioritize accessibility and ease of use for both projects and their end-users.

We offer a comprehensive set of features to streamline the process of building, deploying, and maintaining decentralized applications, including a high-level API for ERC20 and ERC721 tokens, JSON-RPC nodes, a bridging SDK, graph indexing, oracles, and Gnosis Safes. These tools ensure that developers can focus on creating great experiences, without needing to wrangle with deploying auxiliary infrastructure that their project depends on.

By default, Caldera also handles all of the complexity of running a rollup: we provide the blockchain nodes and an advanced observability and monitoring stack, ensuring that Caldera chains run smoothly. We handle the infra, freeing up developers to focus on what they do best: building great applications.


We want our partner projects to have the best of both worlds: the technical power to run their blockchain smoothly, and the design principles to make it work just the way they want. And that's exactly what we're delivering with Caldera Chains. Join us in shaping the future of blockchain technology.
