Crypto News Recap

Vitalik’s EIP-7702

Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP) are formally submitted suggestions that allow users to propose a change to the network. On May 7th, Vitalik Buterin posted a suggestion titled EIP-7702. EIP-7702 would allow externally owned accounts (EOAs) to temporarily become smart wallets. An EOA is an account consisting of a public and private key and is commonly referred to as a wallet. Meanwhile, a smart wallet relies on code rather than a private key. Being able to do this could allow users to access smart contract capabilities, like combining transactions to save on gas fees or fee sponsorship. 

Binance Fined $4.4M in Canada 

The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) has announced a penalty of $4.4M USD for Binance. Binance reportedly failed to follow Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) regulations. In addition, they found that Binance “failed to register with FINTRAC as a foreign money services business” and “failed to report large virtual currency transactions of $10,000 or more in the course of a single transaction, together with the prescribed information”. Binance left Canada in 2023 due to regulatory concerns. 

FTX Creditors to be Paid 

FTX bankruptcy estate announced a reorganization plan that would help to repay their creditors. The estate said that if implemented, 98% of creditors would receive 118% of claims, while the remaining creditors would receive 100% “plus billions in compensation”. The amount repaid will be the value of the investments at the time, rather than the current market value. The plan has yet to be finalized in court.
