🎉 Starkware Unveils Papyrus
Earlier last week, the team at Starkware unveiled Papyrus, a new open-source full node for StarkNet. Papyrus is built in the Rust programming language and tracks the state of the network as it evolves over time.
It’s a crucial component in the ongoing development of the StarkNet infrastructure as it’ll provide the foundation for the new StarkNet sequencer, an upcoming feature that will significantly enhance the network's throughput.
🎨 Will your design win the Starkware sessions’ 2023 t-shirt competition?
StarkWare has asked the ecosystem to come up with some t-shirt designs for StarkWare Sessions. StarkWare sessions is going to be one of the biggest crypto events in 2023, which means this could be a great opportunity for designers and artists!
What do you win?
Not only do you get your design featured on a t-shirt that verifies (off-chain) your talent, but you’ll win tons of merch AND a free ticket!
