Starknet, an Ethereum extension solution, has made substantial advancements in the modularization of contracts by adding new features to its programming language, Starknet Cairo v2.3.0. The addition of new features, storage options, and event management improves the functionality of smart contracts. The dynamic approach to attaining extensibility provided by components enables third-party modules to enhance contract capabilities.
Cairo, the programming language underlying STARK-provable universal computation programs, powers Starknet and StarkEx, enabling the scalability of applications on the Ethereum Mainnet. It has been essential in enabling programs like dYdX, Sorare, Immutable X, and others.
Cairo has had exceptional growth, with an 875% increase in full-time developers over the last two years and an 83% increase year over year. Its uses go beyond blockchain and are useful wherever proof of computation is needed, which predicts that developer usage will continue to grow.
considerable plans of Starknet for the fourth quarter of 2023 including considerable updates to its Feeder gateway. These improvements look to maintain Starknet at the forefront of Ethereum’s changing environment and solidify its role as a major force in blockchain innovation.
