Introducing HyperSDK, the first framework for building high-performance Virtual Machines from scratch on Avalanche®, providing developers a foundation to build the fastest blockchains in the world, out-of-the-box.

Creating custom Virtual Machines (VMs) is one of the most powerful ways to build on Avalanche. HyperSDK is designed to simplify and accelerate custom VM development, making it safer and easier to launch your own optimized blockchain.

By abstracting away common runtime complexities, HyperSDK provides industry-leading performance and empowers builders to focus on customizations that matter to them.

HyperSDK is structured so that developers can plug into a lightning-fast execution environment without writing massive amounts of code from scratch, reducing the time it takes to build your own blockchain runtime from many months to just a few days.

For a detailed outline of all of HyperSDK’s features and performance optimizations, visit the GitHub Repo.

HyperVMs and HyperChains

Blockchains built with HyperSDK are called HyperChains and can be adapted for any function the developer wishes. From NFT marketplaces to DeFi protocols, HyperSDK ushers in a new era for Avalanche builders to express their full creativity. A demo of the first HyperVM, IndexVM, can be found here.

The HyperSDK public devnet will launch publicly in the near future with native Avalanche Warp Messaging support. Developers that want to participate can prepare by joining the HyperSDK Discord, Builders Discussion, and GitHub Repo.
