Layer-2 Network Starknet Gets Ethereum Virtual Machine With Zero-Knowledge Proofs

StarkWare, the main developer firm behind the layer-2 blockchain Starknet, shared Wednesday plans for its own zero-knowledge rollup compatible with the existing Ethereum infrastructure, a setup commonly known as a zkEVM. The zkEVM, called Kakarot, already in testing, will be available via the Starknet Stack, a set of software tools that make it easier for developers to spin up their own customized application-specific chains. Starknet already has its own zero-knowledge virtual machine, but using a programming language called Cairo. The announcement comes as StarkWare recently shared that it will be coming out with a new cryptographic prover, called “Stwo.”
