Can support a relatively large number of sequencers without burdening the network.
Will guarantee that StarkNet is alive as long as Ethereum is.
The proposal has been updated to support multicalls, fees, and Cairo >=0.7.1. The current status of the proposition can still be found in Signing transactions and off-chain messages · Discussion #14 · argentlabs/argent-x · GitHub

Please note that, in order to keep this newsletter at an acceptable length, I am purging the sections “Useful links and articles” and “Developer resources” on a biweekly basis. Thus they are divided into the sections “past week” and “this week”. You can check out all of the past updates here.
Thank you for reading, and see you next week. ⏳
