Mallet Questions from an Ethereum Developer


I am in the process of integrating an Ethereum de-fi DApp with Cardano and recently started testing IOHK’s Mallet repo. I have a few questions regarding the Mallet setup -

  • Other then forcing the NPM install, are there any reasons why users should or should not update both lodash and elliptic to depth 4 per NPM security recommendations?

  • Is there any reason why Mallet utilizes web3 BigInt rather than ethers BigNumber?

  • I am now heading to both the Discord and Slack channels to seek input there as well…Thanks
