    Argument of
    Knowledge

ZERO KNOWLEDGE

Private inputs are shielded

SCALABLE

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

Transparent

Verifier messages are public coins - no trusted setup

Argument of
Knowledge

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

ZK-STARK

Technology

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.

Scalability

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.

Privacy

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.

Applications

StarkDEX

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