Blockchain platform Ripple has launched a new feature on the XRP Ledger today, June 18, for users to enjoy better services while using XRP for transaction. Known as “Checks amendment,” the update had gained support from majority of trusted validators previously, hence resulting to the decision to inaugurate it.
According to a detailed post on XRPL webiste, the Checks amendment update introduces ‘’Checks’’ to the XRP Ledger. These Checks work similarly to paper checks, allowing sender signs a transaction to create a Check for a specific maximum amount and recipient.
The user can later cash the Check, this allows the recipient to receive the specified amount. Once teh Check is cashed, the movement of money begins. However, depending on the balance of the sender and available liquidity, cashing of the check may fail.
Ripple also added an option that would make the Check remain in the ledger if its fails so that the recipient can try later.
The blockchain platform has released this new Check update on its ledger and encouraged developers to write new transactions and ledger typed based on the Checks amendment.
Ripple is regarded as one of the scalable blockchain platform with regards to financial transactions and this latest Checks amendment is expected to add more features to its existing options, giving users more flexibility and better experience.
