Wallet service provider Argent said in an open letter to users that after six months of alpha phase testing and careful consideration of user feedback, it has decided to stop supporting zksync Era and focus on Starknet.
Argent said: We believe in the huge potential of Starknet and therefore want to prioritize the development of products to support its ecological growth. Starting January 31, 2024, we will begin to gradually reduce support for the zkSync Era and will no longer continue to support it. It is building new features, and while this will not impact user account security, users will experience a significant performance degradation because we will be cutting back-end infrastructure services.
Argent finally said: “We strongly recommend users to transfer their assets on zkSync Era from Argent to another zkSync Era-supported wallet, such as Metamask, as soon as possible. If users still want to save assets through Argent, they can use the LayerSwap cross-chain bridge to bridge them to Starknet or Ethereum mainnet.”

Across Protocol founder Hart Lambur once again posted about LayerZero.
Lambur said that the comments he made over the past few days were not an attack on LayerZero, but just an attempt to have a proper discussion about the security situation. Judging from LayerZero’s current default configuration, the project’s performance in terms of decentralization is not satisfactory. LayerZero runs the repeater on its own server. The code is closed source. Its oracle also chooses Google by default. This is a completely centralized service and also closed source.
Lambur continued: “My point is that it is dangerous and unethical for LayerZero to claim to users that its system is decentralized, because this is not the case. Any wstETH bridged to a chain such as BNB through LayerZero’s OFT standard simply needs Shut down one of the two computers running (the repeater, the Google oracle) and you become a brick, and that cannot be allowed.”
Lambur concluded: “I hope developers considering using LayerZero ask these important questions, and I also hope LayerZero will have an open, transparent dialogue about their design choices.”
