Stellar is an open source hybrid blockchain platform that helps facilitate cross asset transfer of value at low cost. The foresight of this platform is to create a system whereby profits can be moved anywhere globally with no geo-restrictions

The blockchain firm shared its monthly recapitulation recently, and it features a number of exciting developments ahead. In this article, we are going to emphasize on the most significant imminent developments on the stellar network.

Stellar protocol upgrade.

On June 10th, validators casted a vote to adjust the stellar network to protocol 11. The upgrades within the network targets users, developers and businesses that rely on stellar. The three standout changes that would take place amid the upgrade to protocol 11 include:

  • The network space upgrade.

  • The introduction of buy offers.

  • Improved transcription pricing.

The network space upgrade

Normally, when a blockchain network is full, price shoots up. The improved network space has been set high to back an enormous volume of activities.

But contrarily, it is set low to allow nodes with entry to low quality products. It will also allow slow connections to run. These new adjustments will result in;

  • Getting business to the ledger seamless.

  • Low frequency in the rise of prices.

  • The network capacity will be high and constant.

  • No fee charges unless it’s a requirement.

  • Users could choose a higher fee than average so that they won’t get edged out in case

of a price surge.

Introduction of buy offers

Users and financial institutions can now use protocol 11 to indicate buy offers. This was not possible before. ManageBuyOffers feature in protocol 11 can be used to accept genuine buy offers. The feature allows one to describe the highest number of assets he’s ready to buy. This applies to the amount one is willing to pay.

The are also changes in the naming of some features;

ManageOffer feature to ManageSellOffer

CreatePassiveOffer to CreatePassiveSellOffer.

If you want to buy or sell an offer, the units specified for the rates are the same as for regular markets.

These adjustments will make stellar order books to function like other great market order books. This simplifies everything for everyone.

Improved transcription

A new version of VGC auction with fixed prices will take place after protocol 11. Users can now select the maximum fees they will pay. After all, the fees won't be that high. If the activities on the network are huge, users pay the specified amount. If activities are below average, users will pay fewer fees.

It will be easy and efficient to access the protocol. The realization of these achievements will be through continuous improvements in technology.
