Streknet Token Building on Ethereum

Bloomberg – Starknet token operates as a secondary layer to the Ethereum blockchain, focusing on improving transaction speed and reducing costs while ensuring robust security. The Starknet Foundation, which existed in November 2022, oversees the network’s expansion and sustainability. StarkWare, the developer behind Starknet, initially created 10 billion Starkent tokens to support this mission.

Early Community Member Program

The Starknet Foundation has introduced the Early Community Member Program (ECMP) to compensate those instrumental in nurturing the ecosystem. This includes individuals who have:

  • Actively engaged in technical discussions within the community.
  • It has been acknowledged by prominent projects in the ecosystem.
  • Hosted various global events like meetups and workshops.
  • Consistently produced content related to Starknet.

The Foundation, holding a majority of 50.1% of the STRK tokens, plans to use a portion to incentivize community growth and engagement. Contributors and investors were allocated 32.9% and 17% of the tokens, respectively. The ECMP is a strategic step to bolster the community’s involvement as Starknet continues to evolve.
