Ripple has announced the release of Rippled version 0.90.1. This is set to include fixes for external security issues as reported by the users and researchers mainly. These, when exploited, could cause a Rippled restart instance or sometimes even cause system failure by stopping functionalities.

These issues can result in a service attack denial, none affecting the XRP ledgers’ integrity and no user funds.

Ripple’s very own token XRP, has been declining just like the other coins. It is currently trading at $0.64 while retaining its top 3rd position on CoinMarketCap. With a total market cap of $25 billion approximately, experts predict Ripple to expand much more.

The team declared, anybody using or operating a Rippled server should upgrade to the new version released – 0.90.1. As a result, if the system is not upgraded then the operations performed will not be successful and the system may undergo outages and repeated restarts.

You can refer to the Ripple set guide on their official website for instructions on updating rippled on supported platforms.

Ripple team as stated:

“The Ripple operations team plans to deploy version 0.90.1 to all Rippled servers under its operational control, including private clusters, starting at 5:00 PM PST on Thursday, 2018-03-22. The deployment is expected to complete within 4 hours. The network should continue to operate during deployment and no outage is expected.”

Boost compatibility is also necessary while compiling Rippled from source. Using a compatible version of the boost library, Boost 1.64.0 recommended by Ripple team, is a must.

They also announced the upgrade of DepositAuth, checks, and fix513 which are now open for voting on the XRP ledger. Flowcross Amendment will also be enabled very soon.

An upcoming version of Rippled will switch to using the Boost.Beast library as a replacement for the Beast library from the source code. This change also includes the minimum supported version of Boost will change to a version that will incorporate Boost.Beast.



The team is not expecting to release or allow the SHAMapV2, Tickets, or the OwnerPaysFee amendments before the next release of Rippled. These have currently been disabled in the code so the existing version or the upgraded version does not show the future version.

Bug fixes and issues addressed identified external review:

  1. Verify serialized public keys more strictly before using them
  2. Eliminate a potential out-of-bounds memory access in the base58 encoding/decoder logic.
  3. Avoid invoking undefined behavior in memcpy [RIPD-1616]
  4. Limit STVar recursion during deserialization [RIPD-1603
  5. Use lock when creating a peer shard rangeset

The cryptocurrency market has been exhibiting a bullish trend even as Ripple’s XRP steered its way to major declines last week. The digital coin was hovering below $0.40, with very low price action in 2019. XRP was ranked as the third largest crypto-asset with a market cap of $16.03 billion and a price of $0.38, at press time.

However, XRP’s trading volume of $1.28 billion over the past 24-hours painted a different picture. The coin was trading relatively low in terms of its volume.

Ripple’s partnerships and developments did not seem to have had a significant effect on its native cryptocurrency’s trading volume.

The silver crypto, Litecoin [LTC], which is the fifth largest by market cap, recorded a 24-hour trading volume of $4.27 billion, which is nearly four times that of XRP. EOS, the sixth positioned digital asset, stood at a trading volume of $2.04 billion over the past 24-hours.



If the 24-hour trading volume was taken into account, XRP slipped to the seventh position, followed closely by Tron. TRX was closing in with a 24-hour trading volume $858 million.

According to the CoinMarketCap figures, XRP’s trading volume gained momentum on May 14, 2019, registering a massive $5.83 billion in 24-hour trading volume, priced at $0.32, as compared to $1.97 billion the previous day. However, the digital coin endured huge losses over the month as the volume sank soon after. XRP, however, has maintained its price above $0.35.
