🎉 Cairo 1.0 is here!
Last week, StarkWare announced that developers can finally start writing and testing Cairo 1.0.
Cairo 1.0 aims to provide developers with a high-level language for writing secure and more efficient code.
This update marks a massive milestone in the evolution of Cairo. Since its inception, Cairo has rapidly evolved from being the most challenging language for developers to becoming more accessible, as it’s now similar to Rust.
🗣️ Speaker line-up for StarkWare sessions Unveiled
StarkWare Sessions will be one of the year's most significant events, not just for StarkNet but for the entire crypto industry!
It’s only a month away, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
To get the StarkNet community even more excited for this event, StarkWare has started unveiling the list of outstanding speakers who will be attending the event. From Turing Award Laureate and inventor of zero-knowledge proofs Prof. Shafi Goldwasser, the co-founder of Starkware Prof. Eli-Ben Sasson, leading dapps in the StarkNet ecosystem, and more!
🎨 The first-ever on-chain giveaway on StarkNet
Pxls collaborated with Argent to launch the first on-chain giveaway on StarkNet, and the response was enormous, with over 30,000 entrants!
To enter, you had to sign a message with your Argent X wallet and tweet about the giveaway. The prize? The Pxls Argent X RTWK that was created during Pxls Meet the Dapp video.
Like, retweet, and follow is overdone, which is why it’s exciting to watch new and innovative approaches to contests happening on StarkNet.
Even better, the tool created by Pxls will be made open-source for any team on StarkNet to iterate with!
The winner will be announced on Tuesday by Argent.
🔄 JediSwap integrated into Argent X
JediSwap, the only 100% community lead and open-source Automated Market Maker (AMM) on StarkNet, recently launched on mainnet and announced that their integration with Argent X went live!
Since the integration went live, total-value-locked (TVL) has increased by over 100%!

10kSwap supports Stark domains!
10kSwap announced last week that they support Stark domains for StarkNet wallets when connected to the dapp. This is a fantastic integration as Stark domains are significantly easier to read than complicated 0x addresses and should help encourage their adoption in the StarkNet ecosystem.
