Proposal to reduce Ethereum issuance sparks heated discussion in crypto community

Ethereum Foundation researcher Mike Neuder wrote a document titled "Issuance Issues" that supports adjusting token issuance to solve some of the current issues in Ethereum, including maintaining the feasibility of independent staking relative to liquidity staking protocols and ignoring high levels of staking that could harm staking rewards. Neuder advocates for reducing issuance in Ethereum's next upgrade, "Electra," but other researchers and developers strongly reject this position. Opponents believe that the current push to adjust Ethereum's issuance curve is a complete overreaction to unfounded centralization concerns, and that the proposal's goals are unclear, and the current issuance curve has not caused value erosion.

  • A whale who was long on ETH/BTC exchange rate was liquidated after the Aave loan health rate broke 1

    According to on-chain analyst Yu Jin's monitoring, with last night's decline, the ETH/BTC exchange rate fell to a minimum of 0.047. Six hours ago, a whale who has been longing for the ETH/BTC exchange rate since March 2023 experienced liquidation again as the health rate of the loan in Aave fell below 1, and liquidated 2701 ETH (worth about 8.74 million US dollars) to repay the 123.7 WBTC loan. Currently, the whale's loan health rate in Aave is 1.01, still on the edge of the liquidation line. If the ETH/BTC exchange rate continues to decline, its collateral will continue to be liquidated.

    Austin Federa, the strategic director of the Solana Foundation, outlined the recent congestion issues on the Solana chain on the X platform. He stated that these issues stem from the implementation of the QUIC protocol and can be attributed to a known bottleneck issue. The solution is already on the roadmap. The main reason may be that the demand for Solana has increased at such a fast pace that within a few days, the problem went from "sufficient but needs improvement" to "insufficient." Austin Federa summarized that this issue is simply technical debt, a network stack that will almost certainly need to be completely rewritten later this year, while balancing important maintenance/improvement work.

  • Introducing eoracle - the Ethereum Oracle

    Ethereum and Bitcoin faced challenges that were overcome with a very cautious approach, resulting in an extraordinary case study for global human coordination. Adding real-world data through oracles as another layer on top of it is a very promising next step. However, so far, we have taken this step forward without the same caution that is fundamental to the journey toward a decentralized ecosystem. Perhaps we were too close to the problem, focusing only on the outcome - making data accessible - and not being mindful enough about the process allowing it.

  • zkSync founder: zkSync network will be widely decentralized through a flexible governance framework

    Alex Gluchowski, the founder of zkSync, stated in a post on the X platform that in order for Ethereum to become mainstream, L2 must also be trustless. Blockchain is a highly adversarial environment, with conflicts of interest everywhere, and even the most sincere actors may have to compromise or be forced to act against their will. Trusting a core team is not enough to replace a trustless network.
