Rippled 1.0.0 has now been released on Github. Analysts are marking the launch on Github as the “hold status” of the product and even though Rippled just came out of the alpha and beta phase, the product is available to use by all of Ripple’s customers. “A large part of the @Ripple C++ team is at #Consensus2018. But that didn’t stop us from releasing rippled 1.0.0” said Nik Bougalis in a recent tweet.
In case you didn’t know, Rippled is the product name of the network that XRP Ledge runs on. The servers that Rippled uses connect to a network of peers, relays cryptographically signed transactions and they maintain a local copy of the shared global ledger. Moreover, Rippled is fully written in the famous C++ programming language.
xRapid Is Ready and Available
The xRapid product is functioning on the XRP Ledger which means that the finished 1.0.0 version of Rippled is now ready and available for commercial use. We should mention the release of Rippled 1.0.0 comes right after David Scwartz conducted a live demonstration of how xRapid works.
This is how a cryptocurrency enthusiast who saw the live demonstration of xRapid describes the process: “Just watched a live demo of xRapid by @ripple. $100 was sent from NY to Mexico in 2 minutes, which included 2 different conversions in which the result was Pesos in a Mexican bank account. IN 2 MINUTES! The XRP part was done in seconds. #xrpthestandard”.
From the looks of it, David Schwartz’s demonstration was more than successful and it left a good impression on everyone who was present during that time. While Rippled 1.0.0 took a long time to become available for Ripple’s customers, we think it’s to assume that the waiting for it has been worth the time.
