Starknet Foundation to Allocate 1.8B STRK Tokens 'Soon'

Validated Individual Expert

Starknet said 900 million STRK are earmarked for the foundation’s Provisions Committee, and 900 million will be dedicated to user rebates.

The Starknet Foundation, the governing body to promote Ethereum scaling product StarkWare technology, plans to start allocating over 1.8 billion STRK tokens "soon," the foundation said in a tweet on Friday.

StarkWare addresses the main Ethereum blockchain’s slow throughput and transaction fees using ZK rollup technologies that bundle hundreds of transactions off the main blockchain to reduce the computational stress.

In October, the Starknet Foundation earmarked 50 million STRK tokens for a new Early Community Member Program, or ECMP for short.

Some 900 million STRK have been allocated to the foundation’s Provisions Committee to reward past and future contributions by users and community members, Starknet said. A further 900 million tokens have been dedicated to user rebates, it said.

Regarding the user rebates, Starknet said: “Planning for this initiative is currently underway and a new committee is being formed to oversee the distribution of STRK to reward users for their vital transactions on the network.”

  • Multiple incidents of stETH being stolen and cross-chained to the Blast mainnet were discovered. The victim’s mnemonic words/private keys may have been leaked.

    SlowMist founder, Yu Xian, posted on X platform stating that SlowMist and MistTrack have received at least four cases of stETH being stolen and cross-chain transferred to the Blast mainnet. The common feature is that a small amount of ETH transaction fee is sent from an address with obvious traces (including exchanges) to the stolen address, and then stETH is cross-chain transferred to the Blast mainnet for subsequent transfer, and finally the remaining small amount of ETH in the victim's address is transferred to different ETH addresses. The known loss exceeds 100 stETH, and it is likely a group event. The mnemonic phrase/private key of these victims must have been leaked, and the attackers lurked to start on the Blast mainnet. Previously, Scam Sniffer monitoring showed that a certain address lost over 10 BTC pledged on Aave and some PANDORA due to interaction (clicking on the signature authorization) with a fake Blast airdrop website, with a total loss of approximately $717,817.
