Ethereum developers submit EIP-3455 draft to open “super permissions” for users?

The Ethereum developers tweeted that they submitted the EIP-3455 draft, suggesting the introduction of the “SUDO” opcode to allow any sender address to recall the issued tokens. Currently, the draft is still in the open discussion stage. Specifically, the “SUDO” opcode parameter is the same as the “CALL”, and there is another parameter for specifying the sender’s address. The specific discussion specifications of “SUDO” include backward compatibility, test cases, reference implementations, and safety precautions.

What makes this joke more real or more interesting is that YFI founder Andre Cronje said, “EIP-3455 is more important than EIP-1559.” Ethereum engineer Anthon Sassano also said, “EIP-3455 will solve Many problems, willing to pay 1 million US dollars to achieve this goal as soon as possible.”

Litecoin was renamed BitcoinLite?

The Litecoin Foundation announced that Litecoin has been renamed BitcoinLite and the Twitter name has also been changed.

In addition, the official also elaborated on the inner meaning of “Lite”, inspired by the dairy products on the market, such as light butter and light yogurt, which provide healthier alternatives to the original products. BitcoinLite also means staying close to the original product Bitcoin, but at the same time being different.

In the end, the news that Litecoin was renamed was an April Fool’s Day Litecoin Foundation’s marketing campaign. At this time of April Fool’s Day, it is also a good idea to make Litecoin less boring.
