Introduction

StarkEx leverages STARK technology to power scalable, self-custodial trading and payment transactions for applications such as DeFi and gaming. StarkEx enables an application to scale significantly and improve transaction speed while also reducing transaction costs. Implementation requires minimal change to existing setups.

StarkEx currently supports ETH, synthetic assets, and the following tokens:

  • ERC-20

  • ERC-721

  • ERC-1155

StarkEx can also support tokens on other EVM-compatible blockchains.

StarkEx is a mature platform that has been deployed on Ethereum Mainnet since June 2020. Before its Mainnet deployment, over 50M StarkEx transactions were settled on both public and private Ethereum testnets.
