“It’s unfortunate, but it happens,” Nick Bugalis, the lead developer of RippleX, responded to the recent issue with the XLS-20 amendment.
Nick Bugalis, CTO of RippleX, argues that a fix will be required to be able to move forward with the XLS-20 amendment, which activates built-in support for non-fungible tokens in XRP Ledger.
A software engineer and cryptographer says his team will soon propose a “one-line” fix that will solve the problem at the root of the problem.
Lead developer of XRPL Labs, Witse Vinde, recently announced the end of support for the amendment after it was discovered that a simple flag on minted non-fungible tokens could potentially be abused. NFTs released on top of the XRL Ledger may be blocked.
Ripple’s own validators will also veto the correction until it is corrected.
The hotfix will disable the corresponding flag to fix the problem. The Ripple development team will then propose a release of version 1.9.4.
Bugalis hopes that this will be the last problem discovered in XRP Ledger.
The head of the engineering department expressed gratitude to those who helped to identify the problem.
“I am pleased to see that a group of different participants are taking action to prioritize the safety and security of XRPL,” Bugalis said.
Ripple CTO David Schwartz says community-led collaboration is the only way to ensure that users can have a positive experience.
XRP validators began voting on the amendment in late August. Eighty percent of them had to vote for the proposal within two weeks. However, at present, the vote has been disrupted due to the above-mentioned issue.
