Starknet, an Ethereum Layer-2, leverages zk-STARKs technology to advance scalability, reduce transaction costs, and enhance security. It is renowned for having the biggest growth in developers and the lowest transaction fees on Ethereum (source: Developer Report, Grow The Pie), making previously untenable projects feasible. Starknet has tools to build what you want, from gaming to machine learning. However, thanks to low costs and the easy-to-use Cairo language, it really opens up creative possibilities.
