Starknet attracted over $200 million in total value locked (TVL) in 2023. A 40x increase in just one year! 

Starknet is a zk-rollup. It uses an innovative proof system called STARK to scale Ethereum without compromising security and decentralization. 

Stark tokens will be airdropped to active members of the crypto community.

  • Network fees: STRK tokens will be used to pay network fees (gas) on the Starknet blockchain. You can pay network fees in ETH as well.
