Starknet Announces Changes To Feeder Gateway In Q4 And Transition To Full Nodes
- Starknet plans gateway changes, shifting to decentralized Full Nodes.
- The Quantum Leap upgrade boosts Starknet’s Mainnet scalability.
- The STRK token launch date is still undisclosed, creating anticipation.
In a recent announcement, Starknet, the Layer 2 zkRollup solution on the Ethereum network, revealed plans for significant changes to its Feeder gateway scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.
The alterations involve discontinuing support for multiple types of queries, with the gateway retaining only synchronization-related endpoints for Full Nodes.
The Starknet Feeder gateway has historically acted as a temporary solution, facilitating access to the centralized sequencer of the Starknet status center. However, the network now recommends that its developers transition to alternative services like API providers or Full Nodes such as Pathfinder, Juno, and Papyrus. This shift marks a move away from centralized solutions towards decentralized, resilient, and efficient systems, aligning with the principles of blockchain technology.
Starknet acknowledges that this transition will require collaboration with various API providers to ensure reliability and manage the expected increase in traffic. The company emphasized that the transition to Full Nodes and API services would only occur when they believe the ecosystem is fully prepared for the change.
Its core mission is to enable the efficient operation of decentralized applications (dApps) during Ethereum‘s scaling process. Recently, the Quantum Leap V12.0 version was deployed on the Mainnet, significantly improving network scalability. This upgrade boosted the network’s transaction processing speed per second (TPS), marking a pivotal milestone in the network’s development.
While the project ecosystem experiences rapid progress, it’s worth noting that the launch date for the STRK token remains undisclosed, keeping the crypto community eagerly anticipating further developments.
