$20 Million ETH Returns to ZKasino: Over $20 million in Ether has been returned to ZKasino's wallet, sparking hope for refunds three weeks after an alleged exit scam. The return of two-thirds of the stolen funds raises hopes about potential compensation for victims.

FTX Creditors to Receive Payments: An impressive 98% of FTX creditors are on track to receive at least 118% of their approved claims in cash, with disbursements expected within the next 60 days.

Vitalik Buterin's New Proposal: Vitalik Buterin and his collaborators have introduced EIP-7702 as an alternative to EIP-3074, aiming to enhance Ethereum's account abstraction. This proposal allows externally owned accounts (EOAs) to temporarily function as smart contract wallets for the duration of a transaction before reverting to their original state.
