New XRP Ledger Version Gets Huge Efficiency Boost
RippleX has recently announced the release of version 1.7 of the XRP Ledger. The upgrade provides a vital boost to the software’s efficiency and makes the network more secure and decentralized.
The new version also reduces memory usage by a whopping 50% because of improvements that are partially attributed to Ripple CTO David Schwartz. Back in December, he had conducted a test of the new release. Schwartz noted that version 1.7 will benefit the whole ecosystem.
Ultimately, v1.7 makes better use of available system resources. By boosting efficiency, the whole XRPL ecosystem benefits and can more easily operate the software to build directly on the Ledger.
Bharath Chari, the spokesperson for the XRPLF, said that the foundation will keep its focus on enhancing the XRP Ledger.
Enhancements, such as today’s improvements to memory usage, are key to growth and innovation on the Ledger. We look forward to supporting the wider ecosystem, including the superb code development by the RippleX team.
Ripple Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Ripple price will drop below the $0.45 support wall and fall towards the 50-day SMA ($0.40).
