XRP nodes operated by Ripple were out of sync for more than 5 hours, which disrupted the wallet services
The XRP ledger needs to improve the flow associated with the trust line to increase the ability of the nodes to process transactions from concurrent users.
XRP nodes are out of sync
Two XRP nodes operated and maintained by Ripple and its developers, “S1” and “S2”, were recently out of sync with the network. The outage lasted 5 hours and according to a report it affected unattended wallet users like Xuum and Xrplcluster.com. tweets by Xuum.
XRP has a throughput of 1,500 transactions per second (tps), not counting the “Trust Flows” transactions in the network.
If a user intends to receive payments in anything other than XRP, they will need a line of trust with the issuing account of that asset. This helps prevent token spam and gives users the ability to choose which assets to hold and receive without negatively affecting XRP wallets or balances.
The number of “lines of trust” and XRP tokens on the network has exploded beyond what was tested or expected, disrupting the public nodes of the XRP ledger. XRPL public nodes and clusters are being scaled up, but not ready for higher “trust flow” transaction volumes.
Analyst WKahneman shared his view on the challenges facing the XRP ledger in a tweets recently.
“Summary of the most recent XRPL problems from WietseWind & XummSupport. There is so much to learn and maybe even reward for responding to the same information. It’s a long subject, but be patient. Something important is happening at XRPL. “
Transactions on applications using two nodes are delayed, and moving to other nodes like Xrplcluster.com can create backups there.
Ripple engineers are working to increase the capacity of the public nodes.
XRP whales are flooding exchanges. A mysterious whale recently sent 40 million XRP to Binance for sale. This token was unable to recover from the recent drop in prices.
