StarkNet: Smarter, Faster, and more Open Source
CAIRO IS OPEN SOURCE!!!
Don’t trust, verify! It’s the ethos that has launched a revolution and this is the first step towards StarkWare’s journey to open source the StarkNet stack.
Cairo 1.0 transitions the provable programming language from python-based to rust-based and includes many performance and ergonomic improvements.
Don’t take my word for it….check it out for yourself!
One of the many benefits of OS is we can now leverage our talented community of gigabrains. Rockstar @xJonathanLEI submitted the first community PR merged to the codebase!
STARKNET IS FASTER!!!
As Developer Advocate David Barreto (@barretodavid) aptly puts it:
“Make it work -> Make it right -> Make it fast (you are here)”
We have been working very hard in PARALLEL with the community on speeding things up. One of the benefits to the “shut up and build” mentality and parallel development tracks is that improvements start to stack on one another and we get big gains “all of a sudden”.

Optimistic parallelization in the spirit of BLOCK-STM by @Aptos_Network
IT'S ALREADY DEPLOYED on MAINNET!!
Account Abstraction UX is Mind Blowing
If you haven’t tried Cartridge GG’s sign-in flow drop what you’re doing and try it.
Seriously…throw your computer or phone out the window and go try it asap. It’s that good! Okay actually go grab both of those because you’ll need them to test out the mind blowing Face/TouchID login feature. AA is the future and this team is building it.
If you missed out on the Non Fungible Football mint I wouldn’t worry about it because this team ships!
Stark Struck w/ ZKLend
Pour yourself a coffee, sit back and enjoy the dulcet tones of the STARK-Struck podcast. This week Henri gets to know @bfu_fubrian and @jane0mac from the @zkLend team.
Do they all team up for potato chip bag crinkling ASMR at the very end of the podcast? Probably not, but listen all the way through just to make sure.
