As previously reported, XRP closed its 81 millionth ledger last month, which was celebrated by the ecosystem. The most recent milestone suggests that XRPL added a million ledgers in just over a month, which is still a tremendous achievement.

Evernode releases new updates

Evernode, a Layer 2 platform that brings smart contracts via Hooks to the XRP Ledger ecosystem, has made a few announcements ahead of its proposed snapshot date of Sept. 1.

XRP Ledger L2 Smart Contract Hints at Timeline for Critical Milestone for Launch

Evernode highlighted an issue, saying it has been trying to get the nomad contract to persist.

Explaining the issue, it stated that when a host has multiple tenants and all those tenants contact the same rippled server to interact with the Ledger, those servers might interpret it as a DDOS attack. This would cause the server to temporarily ban the host, causing issues for all contracts it hosts.

To solve this issue, Evernode revealed some minor upgrades: "Upgrade Sashimono to support IPv6 on outgoing calls (incoming remains IPv4). Prompt Hosts on installation to apply IPv6. Prompt Hosts that don’t support IPv6 to have <5 instances to guard against being suspended by the network servers. The LeaseNFTs will be upgraded to specify the IP address of the slot."

Evernode promises to release further updates soon.
