Understanding Account Abstraction

What is Account Abstraction ?

Account abstraction allows for more flexible and user-friendly account models beyond the traditional externally owned accounts (EOAs). With AA, smart contract wallets can initiate transactions, enabling more complex logic like multi-signature verification, recovery mechanisms, and gas fee payments in tokens. AA revolves around the idea of avoiding the need for change in concensus layer.
