The core contract of Ethereum Account abstract proposal ERC-4337 has been audited
On March 2nd, Yoav Weiss, a security researcher at the Ethereum Foundation, announced that the core contract of the new Ethereum account abstraction proposal ERC-4337 has passed an audit by Open Zeppelin and will be available on every Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible network, including Polygon, Optimism, Arbitrum, BNB Smart Chain, Avalanche, and Gnosis Chain. According to Weiss, new users will no longer need to learn the complex process of mnemonic phrases or setting up a wallet to enter the decentralized crypto world.
Account abstraction is a technique that reduces complexity and increases efficiency by omitting unnecessary details of the Ethereum account system (eliminating the need for EOAs and special handling for smart contract wallets). Weiss is one of the main authors of Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 4337, along with Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and five other members. Weiss said, “Vitalik first proposed this concept 9 years ago, even before Ethereum was launched. It took us this long to get to this stage.” (Cointelegraph)

Cryptocurrency market volatility will increase in anticipation of further Fed rate hikes
According to Bitfinex Alpha report, the possibility of a US interest rate hike continues to hang over the market as there is more evidence of a renewed acceleration of inflation and strong consumer spending in February. As investors reassess expectations, the S&P 500 index lost half of its January gains last month. The bond market, which initially believed that the Federal Reserve would soon pause its rate hikes in January, has also changed its view on the interest rate. Although Bitfinex Alpha expects more rate hikes, the Fed’s tightening monetary policy since last year is beginning to have an impact on the economy. In the cryptocurrency market, Bitfinex Alpha expects volatility to increase in the short term. With a significant drop in Bitcoin and Ethereum prices over the weekend, the total market capitalization of the crypto market fell below the important $1 trillion mark. Futures markets continue to dominate the market dynamics, leading to larger-scale liquidations. Volatility seems to be set to continue.
