As per available information, more network validators of XRP are planning to vote in favor of implementing an automated market maker (AMM).
Panos Mekras, the cofounder of Anodos Finance, drew attention to his recent ‘X’ post, which calls for attention to the release of Rippled version 2.0.1, XRPL’s server software.
He accompanied the new version release and has also expressed confidence that the arrival of the proposed AMM amendment on the XRP Ledger is now closer to reach than earlier before.
Wietse Wind, the architect of XRPL Labs, disclosed the plan to integrate the new software version into XRPL Labs validators and several nodes. He added that if the installation and implementation carry on without fail, he intends to vote “yes” to the amendment in the forthcoming two weeks.
Chris Larsen, the Executive Chairman of Ripple, wrote in his ‘X’ on January 31, 2024, that “there was unauthorized access to a few of his personal XRP accounts, not the accounts of Ripple.”
He further wrote, “We quickly caught the problem and notified exchanges to freeze the affected addresses. Law enforcement is already involved.”
ZachXBT, a Blockchain sleuth, posted on ‘X’ on Wednesday that the Ripple network has been hacked for over 213 Million XRP. However, the data of CoinMarketCap shows that soon after the information, XRP price slipped more than 5%; as of writing, it was trading at $0.4945.
