Starknet Plans to Utilize Ethereum’s Dencun Upgrade for Significant Fee Cuts and Improved Scalability


Starknet, a well-known Layer-2 scaling protocol, will increase the advantages of lower rollup costs after the March 13 Ethereum hard fork known as Dencun.

With the announcement of plans for further fee reductions in line with the Dencun upgrade by the Starknet Foundation, Ethereum’s infrastructure has undergone a substantial evolution since switching to proof-of-stake in October 2022.

The Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP-4844), a feature of the Dencun upgrade, has the potential to completely change how Ethereum rollups store data on the mainnet.


It addresses the high costs associated with call data storage by introducing an alternative known as “blob space,” which eliminates the need for all Ethereum nodes to perform on-chain processing continuously.

With data automatically expiring after 18 days, this new method—known as proto-danksharding and named after its proponents—allows for more affordable data storage in blocks without permanent accessibility or processing by the Ethereum Virtual Machine.

Vice President of Product at Polygon Labs David Silverman has highlighted the method’s substantial cost benefits and upheld security guarantees for rollups.

There might be some initial delays while layer-2 solutions modify their contracts to make use of the new blob space, as Starknet expects immediate fee reductions.

Starknet is getting ready to release version 0.13.1 in accordance with the Dencun hard fork, switching from the expensive call data method to blobs for data transactions, promising significant fee savings, considering call data’s predominant role in Starknet’s gas expenditures.

Product manager for StarkWare and blockchain researcher Ilia Volokh said that Starknet’s SHARP prover, which communicates state differences to Ethereum, will use blob space, which will enable a timely reflection of fee reductions after Dencun launches.


With the statement, “A byte of data will be priced in accordance with Ethereum’s blob prices,” Volokh emphasized the immediate impact on users.

A new hash system that will be released in early 2024 will increase the protocol’s transaction capacity through enhanced proof bundling technology, further increasing Starknet’s efficiency.

This advancement demonstrates Starknet’s dedication to using Ethereum’s developing ecosystem to provide scalable, reasonably priced solutions.

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
