    Argument of


Private inputs are shielded


Prover time scales quasi-linearly with respect to a native computation, while verifier time scales logarithmically


Verifier messages are public coins - no trusted setup

Argument of

A proof can only be generated by a party knowing the private input



StarkWare solves the inherent problems of blockchains – scalability and privacy.

We develop a full proof-stack, using STARK technology to generate and verify proofs of computational integrity.

StarkWare’s cryptographic proofs are zero-knowledge, succinct, transparent and post-quantum secure.

Vitalik's 3-part series explaining STARK


Off-Chain Computations

STARK is an asymmetric protocol: the verifier’s work is exponentially smaller than the prover’s.

By conducting the prover’s work off-chain and verifying it on-chain, we allow blockchains to massively scale without requiring any trust assumptions.


Private Inputs are Shielded

The zero knowledge component of STARK allows for the shielding of private inputs without compromising computational integrity. Private information can be kept off-chain while verified on-chain.



StarkDEX is a scalability engine for DEXes (non-custodial exchanges) that will allow them to handle over 10,000 trades per block.
