I think there are two potential (and compatible) EIPs here:
- Significantly adjusting down the 21K gas cost for sending Tx - keeping everything else as-is.
- Differentiating between sending Tx to a new account vs an existing account.
I want to outline my arguments for the 1st approach, which I believe delivers 90% of the value to the Ethereum community, can be achieved much quicker, carry very little risk, complexity or debt, and is incremental in nature.
However, I don’t want to “hog” your EIP on this, which feels to me leaning towards the 2nd approach.
Should I fork this with my own take or should I add another EIP?
