Cairo — Welcome On Board

Cairo — Welcome On BoardCairo Toolchain 0.0.1A few months ago we announced Cairo, our Turing-complete framework for proving general computations. Since then we held the Cairo Genesis Workshop and presented Cairo at ZK Summit 6. Today, we are releasing the first version of the Cairo Toolchain.Why are…

StarkEx 2.0 is Now Live on Mainnet!

The first Cairo based system is now in productionFive months ago we launched StarkEx 1.0 as the first production-based STARK system, powering DeversiFi’s self-custodial exchange. Immediately after the launch we started developing the new and improved version, StarkEx 2.0, which rolled out today. Thi…

The Road to L2 Interoperability

Moving funds between L2 systems with minimal frictionTL;DR L2 Interoperability means allowing users to move funds between L2 systems with minimal L1 friction. The proposed L2 interoperability solution relies on our previously suggested Conditional Transaction (Tx) cryptographic primitive. StarkEx 2.…

The Optimistic Rollup Dilemma

Capital Efficiency vs. SecurityTL;DR We claim that Liquidity Providers will necessarily prefer a ZKR-Uniswap (Uniswap over a ZK-Rollup) to an OR-Uniswap (Uniswap over an Optimistic Rollup), as the ZKR-Uniswap will be *far* more capital efficient. Improving capital efficiency in an OR requires shorte…

Hello, Cairo!

TL;DRCairo is the first production-grade platform for generating STARK proofs for general computation. It is Turing Complete, and highly efficient. Everything we’ve been building — starting with our Reddit Bake-off submission — is written in Cairo, including all our upcoming deployments: DeversiFi, …
