The Montenegrin Ministry of Justice recently met with the US SEC to discuss the Do Kwon investigation

Montenegro’s Ministry of Justice said on Wednesday that authorities recently met with representatives of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to discuss an investigation into former Terraform Labs co-founder Do Kwon and broader issues around cryptocurrency investor protection.
The ministry said in a statement that the SEC had submitted its findings into Do Kwon, as well as court proceedings against him in the United States, to Attorney General Andrej Milović.

Some of FIT 21 may change and need to be approved by the U.S. Senate, after which Biden will have ten days to sign or veto it

The 21st Century Financial Innovation and Technology Act (FIT 21, HR 4763), led by the US Republican Party, was passed by the House of Representatives on May 22 local time.
But it could take months for the 100-member Senate to consider the bill.
Some parts of FIT 21 could change. Lawmakers from the House and Senate will meet to resolve differences in their versions of the bill before final approval, after which U.S. President Joe Biden will have ten days to sign or veto it.
Even if Biden vetoes the bill at that time, the House of Representatives and the Senate can return it to the two chambers with at least a two-thirds majority vote, thus overturning Bidens veto. (Cointelgraph)
Earlier news, U.S. SEC Chairman Gary Gensler said on Wednesday that the 21st Century Financial Innovation and Technology Act (FIT 21) would harm investor interests and hinder the work of the SEC.

Consensys plans to go public through blockchain and is seeking acquisition opportunities

Consensys CEO Joe Lubin said the 회사 hopes to use crypto-native methods to attract public investment and is looking for acquisition opportunities.
When asked about ConsenSys’ path to going public, Lubin said “we’ve been talking about this for a long time.” “There are different ways to go public in our ecosystem,” he continued. “You can launch a protocol, you can tokenize a protocol, you can externalize a project.” But he did say ConsenSys could potentially spin off MetaMask or another division, such as toolkit developers Infura or Linea.
Consensys is working with auditing firm KPMG but declined to provide specific details.
In addition, Lubin made it clear that Consensys will choose to go public through the blockchain route rather than listing on Nasdaq or other stock exchanges.
He added: If we do go public in some form, were always inclined to do something with our own technology, which doesnt mean we want to leave the U.S. capital markets, which are deep and liquid. But maybe theres a way to go public with our own technology and still make it available to people. (DL News)

Bloomberg analyst: Demand for SOL ETF may be huge, but SECs tough stance will be a huge obstacle

James Seyffart, an ETF analyst at Bloomberg, wrote on X that, in addition to BTC and ETH, the demand for SOL ETF may be greater than other digital assets, but the problem is that the SECs attitude towards SOL is completely different from that towards ETH. In previous lawsuits against Coinbase, Kraken and other companies, the SEC has stated bluntly that Solana (SOL) is a security, which may make the road to SOLs ETF very bumpy.

Vitalik: L2 is consistent with the underlying scaling method of executing shards, but key challenges such as coordination need to be addressed

Vitalik Buterin published an article today titled How do layer 2s really differ from execution sharding?, in which he mentioned that in public discourse, Layer 2 and sharding are often described as two opposite strategies for how to scale blockchain. But when you look at the underlying technology, youll find a conundrum: the actual underlying scaling methods are exactly the same, including some data sharding, fraud provers or ZK-SNARK proofs, and cross-(rollup, shard) communication solutions. The main difference is: who is responsible for building and updating these parts, and how much autonomy do they have?
An L2-centric ecosystem is a form of sharding in a very real technical sense, but one in which you can create your own shards with your own rules. This is powerful and supports a lot of creativity and autonomous innovation. But it also comes with key challenges, especially around coordination. For an L2-centric ecosystem like Ethereum to succeed, it needs to understand these challenges and address them head-on in order to get as many benefits of an L1-centric ecosystem as possible and get as close to the best of both worlds as possible.

Taiko Lianchuang: In order to avoid unnecessary disputes, the details of the TKO Genesis airdrop will not be disclosed

Taiko co-founder and CEO danielwang.eth posted on the X platform: In order to avoid unnecessary debate, we will not disclose the detailed TKO Genesis airdrop rules. Our goal is fairness, but we cannot satisfy everyone. Congratulations to those who received TKO, and apologize to those who did not receive TKO.
According to previous news, Taiko officially announced the launch of the TKO airdrop qualification inquiry page, which will allocate 5% of the initial supply.

Taiko Lianchuang responded to the airdrop question: Those who don’t like it can leave, and there is zero tolerance for all abusive behavior

In response to the Chinese community’s questions, Taiko co-founder and CEO Daniel Wang responded in a post on Discord:
“ 1. I have zero tolerance for insulting me, my team, our family and friends for any reason. No matter if what you say makes sense or not.
2. We are a partner of Galaxy, not working for them. We do not refer to the Galaxy rankings. We include the Taiko-related activities we participate in on Galaxy in our calculations, but the weight is not large (it seems to be in the single digits).
3. If you didn’t get the airdrop, it’s because others have more points than you, it’s that simple.
4. The rules are not transparent because transparency cannot resolve differences. Everyone has a highly subjective definition of fairness. We cannot reach a consensus and do not try to reach a consensus.
I have no intention of arguing with you whether Taiko is a good project or not. You can dislike us and leave. We are not without faults and there is a lot of room for improvement. But as far as airdrops are concerned, no project can please everyone: those who are happy to receive airdrops are rarely willing to share their joy publicly.
No longer responding to comments related to airdrops. ”
