Scaling with Starknet

Starknet is live on Mainnet, providing developers and users with massive scaling, fast transactions, and low costs.

Developers can harness Starknet's power to implement their business logic of choice in a permissionless manner.

Starknet Appchains allow to benefit Starknet's scaling power and tools, while adjusting the network's configuration, and implementing unique features.

Scalability and Integrity

Starknet operates as a Layer 2, providing scale and Ethereum-level security by producing STARK proofs off-chain, and then sends those proofs on-chain.

General Purpose

Developers can deploy any business logic on Starknet, benefiting from the advantages of Cairo, Account Abstraction, and other features.


Starknet provides Ethereum-level composability – facilitating easy development, innovation, and creativity.

Underlying Technologies

Starknet’s underlying technologies have been battle-tested in production.


Starknet Contracts and the Starknet OS itself are written in Cairo, our programming language for STARK-proving general computation. Cairo makes it easier and faster to develop, review and maintain code. Cairo has been in production on Ethereum Mainnet since June 2020.


The STARK Prover powers the StarkEx scalability engine and has settled over 400M txs and over $1T worth of trades on Ethereum Mainnet.


STARK Verifiers have been deployed on Ethereum Mainnet since 2019. The Cairo Verifier, which can verify the proof of any Cairo program (including Starknet, and all StarkEx deployments), has been deployed on Mainnet since July 2020.
