Ripple tests XRPL’s NFT functionality and performance

Ripple tests XRPL's NFT functionality and performance

The development team wanted to see how NFT transactions would affect the XRPL, so they tested the ledger’s capacity.

The XRP Ledger has been put through a performance test by Ripple’s development team (XRPL). A new RippleX report says that the test was meant to help developers figure out how well the XRPL can support the XLS-20 standard for non-fungible tokens. That is, to see if the ledger could handle the higher number of transactions that native NFTs would cause.

The development team wanted to see how NFT transactions would affect the XRPL, so they tested the ledger’s capacity. That is, if it could handle the increased number of transactions that on-ledger NFTs would cause. The researchers found that XRP payments alone could handle a maximum of 2,199 transactions per second. NFT minting, on the other hand, was found to have a steady throughput of 384 transactions per second.

Ripple has tried NFT minting with the ability to buy and sell at a rate of 751 transactions per second. While a steady rate of 1,064 transactions per second was reached for XRP payments and NFT trading.

Recommendations on Issues

The test results, according to the people who made them, show that there is a clear need for fast disk I/O. Also, people who run nodes should think about switching from RocksDB to NuDB.

In the meantime, tests showed that the RocksDB was better than the NuDB. But nodes with a long ledger history might no longer have the speed advantage. In fact, the NFT tests that were just finished show that NuDB is not only faster than RocksDB, but it also uses much less memory.

Striking Moves

In the meantime, it’s important to note that Ripple has been working on integrating NFTs and has taken the necessary steps.

In September, RippleX said that there would be a $250 million fund for NFT innovators to work on the XRP Ledger. In January, the company also started the NFT-Devnet, which lets people try out the NFT features of the blockchain.

Ripple says that its ledger is perfect for NFTs because its transactions are fast, cheap, not centralized, and will last for a long time, among other things.
