Starknet, a scaling protocol for Ethereum, has undergone a major upgrade called Quantum Leap, which will significantly increase transaction processing speed and reduce costs. The upgrade includes a complete rewrite of how Starknet processes transactions and introduces new components such as the Cairo VM and the Blockifier mechanism. Ethereum’s transaction throughput is expected to reach triple-digit values with the upgrade. Future phases of the upgrade will bring reduced gas fees, a fee market, lower block intervals, and improved spam-resistance. The network has already achieved a stable benchmark of 37 TPS. Testing results show that Ethereum transactions can be finalized in just 15 seconds. Starknet was launched by blockchain veteran Eli Ben-Sasson, leveraging its own programming language called Cairo.
