IOG unveils groundbreaking “Babel fees” mechanism for Cardano

Published

on

Cardano will receive the “Babel fees” mechanism, which will allow transaction fees to be paid in native tokens.
The mechanism will bring more value to Cardano’s native tokens and create new business models.

One of the “birds” announced by Charles Hoskinson has landed. While not a major partnership with a company or a government contract in Africa, Hoskinson says it is “one of the biggest advances in the entire industry.” IOG announced the “Babel fees” mechanism, enabling the payment of transaction fees in native tokens on the Cardano blockchain.

The technical basis is that Cardano native tokens – with the upcoming “Mary” upgrade – will be treated in the same way as ADA. As Prof. As Prof. Aggelos Kiayias, Chief Scientific Officer at IOG, explained in a blog post, the Extended UTXO (EUTXO) model “may carry not just ADA but in fact a token bundle that can contain multiple different tokens, both fungible and non-fungible. In this way it is possible to write transactions that transfer multiple different tokens with a single UTXO.”

This is also made possible by the fact that the amount of a transaction fee in Cardano, unlike Ethereum, can be accurately predicted:

Transaction fees in the ledger are denominated in ada according to a function fixed as a ledger parameter. A powerful feature of Cardano’s EUTXO model is that the fees required for a valid transaction can be predicted precisely prior to posting it.

This is a unique feature that is not enjoyed by other ledger arrangements (such as the account-based model used in Ethereum).

However, the mechanism is tied to the presence of liquidity providers which creates a market for “exciting” new business models, Kiayias said. For example, a stake pool operator (SPO), can publish exchange rates for certain tokens that it deems acceptable.

A SPO may accept a TokenX for an exchange rate of 3:1 via ADA. In Cardano’s native asset model, this can be implemented as a single UTXO, according to Kiayias. The exchange rate here can be defined completely freely by the SPOs, and can also be different between different SPOs, as there is no need for an agreement between SPOs on the value of a particular token.

But not only SPOs could cover the liabilities. It is also conceivable that SPOs could “partner with a third-party liquidity provider to issue matching transactions. In addition, third party providers can also act on the network independently and issue matching transactions.”

On the timing of when the “Babel fees” mechanism will be implemented on Cardano and the opportunities it presents, Kiayias explained:

The mechanism of negative quantities in token bundles can be implemented in the basic ledger rules of Cardano at some point following the introduction of native assets with the Mary Hard Fork.

Beyond Babel fees, the mechanism allows a variety of other interesting applications, such as atomic swaps for spot trades, […] It is yet another illustration of the power of Cardano’s approach and its ability to support a diverse and entrepreneurial community of users and stake pool operators.

Cardano (ADA), XRP Price Could Retest These Levels Before Skyrocketing!

Published

on

  • XRP could possibly hit highs of around $1.2. Extreme sell-offs would plummet XRP below $1.
  • ADA might hit its resistance around $2.4 but could test its support levels before the uptrend.

  The crypto space has been a rough sail for altcoins such as XRP and ADA. However, the coins have managed to withstand strong and gusty winds. Meanwhile, investors and traders are eagerly waiting for a pull-out from the blues.

XRP Price

XRP at press time is trading at $1.09, with negative gains for the last 24-hours at 1.1%. The market cap stands at $51,193,598,011. While the trading volume for the last 24-hours hovers around $3,742,571,734. 

XRP has been moving along the descending triangle. A triple top formation is visible on the charts. The coin has attempted to break through each time and has failed to keep up the momentum. 

The digital asset has been moving along a narrow range. If it breaks out the triangle, we can expect it to reach its resistance at $1.2. On the contrary, XRP would move across the narrow range. However, extreme sell-offs would result in XRP plummeting below $1.

Cardano (ADA)

Cardano, the top-tier altcoin at press time is trading at $2.16 with negative gains at 1.1% for the last 24-hours. While the market cap is at $69,172,092,701. The trading volume for round the clock floats around $1,749,372,395. ADA has not let its foot lose at its level of  $2.0, despite the crash. However, massive sell-offs might result in ADA plunging to its strong support levels. Prior to rebounding to its resistance around $2.4

Collectively, XRP and ADA could propel towards their respective resistance levels in near future. And hopefully, bullish momentum could follow with the commencement of the alt season. Netizens are expecting a massive rally to follow, as it has been due for a brief period of time.

Cardano’s price has remained stagnant for the previous several weeks. Cardano saw consolidation in a tighter range, with a lower peak at $2.30 near the start of October, after establishing a high low of $2.30 in early October.

The next higher high of $2.30 was followed by a lower low set during the subsequent retracement, which was below $2.15. As a result, the overall trend for ADA/USD is still unclear.

We may see Cardano’s price recover some of its losses in the coming days. If a lower high is broken, we can anticipate bearish momentum to continue into next week.

Cardano Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Today’s Cardano price is in an upswing, according to most market forecasters. After a big drop, a new lower low was established today. Bearish momentum, on the other hand, has run its course, and we may expect a retracement in the next 24 hours.
