The Manta New Paradigm is Now Live

Manta Network has launched the Manta New Paradigm, an exciting development for users. This new paradigm introduces composability for yield-bearing tokens, allowing maximum efficiency and rewards for those depositing ETH and stablecoins. 

Unlike traditional approaches, where yield-bearing tokens and infrastructure remain separate, Manta Pacific integrates them, creating a unique ecosystem. With over $30 million in Total Value Locked (TVL) and 100+ projects already deployed, Manta Pacific aims to unlock native yield for users in an unprecedented way.

Starknet v0.13.0 is Live on Testnet

Starknet v0.13.0 has been launched on testnet, introducing two significant aspects: V3 Transactions and Transaction Fee Reduction

This version lays the groundwork for a new transaction version, v3, and enables transaction fee payments in Starknet’s native token, STRK. Users can now pay fees in STRK alongside Ether (ETH). By doing so, Starknet aims to reduce operational costs in L1 gas and promote efficiency. The sequencer will use oracles to determine the accurate rate of STRK/gas.
