Ripple’s XRP Ledger (XRPL) is undergoing an upgrade with support from over 80% of validators. The upgrade aims to improve XRPL’s functionality by reducing obscured order books. Users are urged to update their software to address critical fixes and take advantage of new features. The upgrade requires an 80% consensus within a 14-day period. The XRPL version 1.12.0 is seen as a significant milestone, solidifying its position as a decentralized public blockchain. The successful security audit of the Xahau sidechain further enhances XRPL’s prospects. Discussions at a recent conference focused on the EVM sidechain update, highlighting ongoing developments in the XRPL ecosystem. The XRPL community showed interest in testing the EVM sidechain on the XRPL Devnet, highlighting the collaborative nature of the ecosystem.
