$STRK Token, recursive STARKs, a crypto Excel and more!
StarkNet Token is Deployed on Ethereum
STRK will be used as a stake token to participate in StarkNet consensus mechanisms, as a governance token, and to pay transaction fees. This post explains the token allocation process and how deployed token contracts serve two of the token's three designated utilities, namely voting and staking.
You can read more about the StarkNet token in our “StarkNet’s next step towards decentralization” article.
STARK @ Home 27: Recursing on Recursion
Ehereum is scaled with recursive STARKs on StarkEx and StarkNet 🧨.
Eli Ben-Sasson (@EliBenSasson), co-inventor of zkSTARK and president of StarkWare, recursively 😅 interviews two of StarkWare's best Shahars. Join if you want to know what a recursive STARK is! Eli states what happened with FTX and how there will always be self-custody at StarkEx and StarkNet, so this never happens.
STARK Struck Podcast #6 - Julien Niset (Argent)
Julien Niset (@jniset) from Argent discusses with Henri the ArgentX smart wallet, how they first heard about blockchain, the relevance of random numbers, quantum computers (did you know Julien is hardcore at quantum?), and security.
You can follow the STARK-Struck podcast on Spotify.
StarkNet Community Call #27
Henri talks to the builders at Carbonable and StarkSheet, two exciting projects that would be almost impossible to build on L1.
Carbonable allows users to manage end-to-end carbon neutrality strategies. They use a pioneering approach that turns carbon removal projects into digital assets.
StarkSheet looks and feels like a spreadsheet, but every cell is an ERC721! This would help onboard Excel users who want to access and use the blockchain with spreadsheet-like functions. Imagine calling getters from an ERC721 on StarkNet with the UX of an Excel cell.
Cheap rates from StarkNet power both projects!
Cairo Class StarkNet Africa
The StarkNet Africa community launched a 7-week class program to get more African developers involved in the StakNet ecosystem.
In their fourth week they explain how Cairo works, follow all their classes here.
