Starknet Alpha v0.13.0 is expected to focus on two aspects of the protocol. Primarily, the upgrade is meant to add the new transaction version v3, with features such as support for STRK as the blockchain platform’s gas token. V3 will also look to bring reduced transaction fees on mainnet.
The v0.13.0 was deployed on the Goerli and Sepolia testnets on December 12 and 13, 2023 respectively.
Community excitement for Starknet has skyrocketed since the project confirmed an airdrop for STRK would be undertaken in early 2024. The project announced a rewards program of 50 million STRK for ecosystem contributors in October. In December, it said it would allocate 10% of network fees to developers.
