Buterin expressed his readiness to implement the proposal, if the community deems the restriction of emissions necessary.

If the community wants fixed supply and people believe that EIP 960 is a good way to achieve that, then it should adopt the proposal. If the community does not, then it should not. This is true regardless of whether or not the original intent was in jest.

According to Vitalik, most of the community did not notice another April Fool's joke, which was hidden in the message about the establishment of the official stable crypto currency on the basis of Ethereum.

The developers of the blockchain platform Streamr presented a solution for scaling the Ethereum network called Monoplasma. It is reported by CoinDesk.

The creators of the project claim that the technology will help solve the problem of repeat payments from one address to many others. Monoplasma, in their opinion, will be useful to developers of decentralized applications focused on the distribution of dividends, staking and repeated airdrops.

The head of Streamr, Henry Pinkala, also demonstrated fake token airdrop for 200 thousand Ethereum addresses in a test network using Monoplasma.

You can receive money, but you can’t send back the other way. That would be like trying to send a message to your TV.

Thus, Monoplasma payment channels are reliably protected from the attack of double waste.

Streamr intends to use a new solution for the mass sale of user data on the blockchain, allowing the buying company to settle accounts with many users at once.
