Starknet, a layer-2 scaling solution, has reiterated its dedication to scaling Ethereum and Bitcoin using Zero-Knowledge (ZK) technology. Emphasizing its commitment to Ethereum scaling since its initial validity rollup release, Starknet has revealed an ambitious 2024 roadmap aimed at revolutionizing Ethereum scaling.

The roadmap underscores Starknet's focus on developing STARK proofs to boost the security and scalability of the supported blockchains. Viewing Ethereum and Bitcoin as the epitome of decentralization and security in the blockchain and cryptocurrency realms, Starknet aims to bridge these major ecosystems, serving as a connecting layer. Starknet has clarified that it won't fork its technology to build an additional layer for Bitcoin or introduce a separate token for the Bitcoin ecosystem. 

Instead, it will operate as an execution layer simultaneously scaling both Bitcoin and Ethereum, utilizing the STRK token for ecosystem management, governance, and security.

Presently, Starknet stands as the seventh-largest Layer 2 network on Ethereum, with $1.12 billion in Total Value Locked (TVL), according to L2Beat data. The Starknet Foundation has been actively supporting the ecosystem by awarding 20 million STRK tokens to 21 top-performing projects within its network. 

This initiative fosters innovation while fortifying the ecosystem, propelling further growth.

Starknet's focus has shifted from solely scaling Ethereum to encompassing both Ethereum and Bitcoin. As succinctly stated by the company, "Yesterday: STARK proofs for the triumph of Ethereum. Now: STARK proofs for the triumph of both Bitcoin and Ethereum."
