We are pleased to announce that we will be collaborating with StarkWare to provide API services to the StarkNet community. InfStones is planning to release StarkNet support API services, running Pathfinder nodes behind the scenes.
StarkNet is a permissionless, decentralized Validity-Rollup (often refered to as ZK-Rollup) that is a layer 2 network over Ethereum. This network allows any dApp to achieve unlimited scale without compromising the security or composability of Ethereum. This is because StarkNet generates STARK proofs off-chain and then verifies these proofs on-chain. StarkNet gives developers the power to easily deploy any business logic with StarkNet Contracts.
We will be working with StarkWare to provide an API service called STARKNET.API. This API service will allow StarkNet users to log into the InfStones platform and use the API to easily develop and launch products across leading blockchains. STARKNET.API will have multiple tiers including a free tier, a standard tier, and an advanced tier.
So, developers will be able to try the service for free. Then, if they would like to unlock more advanced features and greater scaling capacity, they will be able to sign up for the standard or advanced tier. InfStone’s API service offers lightning-fast access to 60+ blockchains and also comes with security features such as access control, whitelists, password protection, and maximum allowed costs for projects.
Speaking about this new collaboration Uri Kolodny, CEO and Co-Founder at of StarkWare said, “We are thrilled to be collaborating with InfStones. The API services that InfStones brings to the table will enable developers in the StarkNet community to be able to easily create and scale Web3 products. We wanted to give developers in our community access to an extremely high-quality, yet cost-effective API. InfStones was definitely the right choice for us.”
Dr. Shenwu Shi, Founder and CEO of InfStones also commented on the collaboration saying, “StarkNet is one of the most exciting layer 2 networks for Ethereum. We are looking forward to providing the StarkNet community with API services that can help developers turn their ideas into stunning blockchain products. Our goal is to help StarkNet expand by empowering developers through multiple tiers of easy-to-use, and highly efficient API services.”
The teams at both StarkNet and InfStones are looking forward to seeing exactly how developers in the StarkNet community will use this new API service to innovate and create new Web3 dApps.
