Istanbul gets a new Hacker House
Rhino.fi charges towards Starknet
Starknet’s feeder gateway is being deprecated
StarknetCC Hacker House Istanbul
StarknetCC is coming to Turkey!
We all know that there’s no StarknetCC without a Hacker House, and the Starknet Foundation are putting one together in Istanbul from the 9th to the 14th of November.
Turkey has a very strong Starknet community and we’re excited to see what cool things are built. Registration has already started! :)
Rhino.fi is coming to Starknet!
Rhino.fi is a multichain DeFi aggregator on Ethereum, Arbitrum, Polygon AND soon to be Starknet. We’re expecting them to hit mainnet soon.
It’s awesome to see DeFi protocols expand to the Starknet ecosystem, we expect many to follow suit as Starknet continues its rise in popularity.
The Starknet feeder gateway will be deprecated soon
The Starknet team created the feeder gateway as a temporary solution for querying the centralized sequencer on the state of Starknet. However, since then, the ecosystem has matured, and now there’s full nodes such as Pathfinder, Juno, Papyrus and Deoxys to provide that service.
And so, at some point in Q4 Starknet will be deprecating their feeder gateway. It’s great to see that the ecosystem is ready for a full migration towards the use of full nodes rather than the feeder gateway.
The ecosystem is decentralizing, and we’re all here for it!
C# SDK for Starknet
The StarkSharp team have launched a new open-source C# SDK for Starknet. Now you’ll be able to connect your C# games, apps etc. to Starknet with ease.
We think that gaming on Starknet has HUGE potential and it’s good to see StarkSharp contributing to the ecosystem.
You could say the chads from ZKX are addicted to shipping. A few weeks ago, they mentioned the ZKX Appchain, and just recently they announced the ZKX Account, which should be the first product to hit mainnet.
ZKX Accounts aim to take advantage of account abstraction to simplify and deliver a seamless UX for new users. Taking the best parts of centralized exchanges (CEX), and combining it with the security and privacy of Decentralized exchanges (DEX).
A hybrid CLOB for Starknet?
CLOB is short for central limit order book. And Layer Akira are claiming to the first hybrid on-chain/off-chain CLOB for Starknet. For users, this means that trades occur at the best price on Starknet.
Fibrous Contracts rewritten to Cairo V2
Fibrous, the first DEX aggregator on Starknet, has rewritten their Cairo smart contracts to V2. This means a significant optimization in fees and router speed. Oh, and now they also use Ekubo, which means better concentrated liquidity and capital efficiency for Starknet.
Mint and sell your NFT on the go!
The Pyramid team recently announced the release of the Pyramid StoreFront, which gives users the ability to mint and sell their own NFTs without a single line of code.
Excited to try it out? Head to Pyramid’s storefront here.
