Avalanche: An Economic Analysis of ACP-77

Blockworks Research

Avalanche has introduced proposal ACP-77, which would drastically lower the barrier to entry to launch a dedicated blockchain, while imposing a continuous fee mechanism that subnets would pay to the P-Chain. By performing a scenario analysis of different dedicated blockchain solutions, we conclude that ACP77 would hypothetically make Avalanche subnets as cost-effective as Celestia-based rollups while providing additional liveness guarantees and native interoperability.

Polygon Protocol Governance Call (PPGC) #20

Blockworks Research

This month's PPGC mainly focused on discussing PIP-37: Ahmedabad Hard Fork, and the PIPs included with it. PIP-36, PIP-30 and PIP-35, included alongside PIP-37, were discussed also in the last PPGC notes. The only notable change since then has been the adoption of EIP-7702 over EIP-3074, with regard to PIP-22. Both are related to account abstraction, while EIP-7702 was proposed by Vitalik while EIP-7702 to eliminate vulnerabilities and ensure forward compatibility, by improving upon EIP-3074.
