The Babylon mainnet upgrade brings improved security measures to the Radix network.
Radix Publishing, a publisher of code for the Layer 1 smart contract platform Radix has announced the completion of its long-awaited Babylon mainnet upgrade. This development marks the end of the Olympia era and is set to prove to be a game-changing moment for both Web 3.0 and the broader Decentralized Finance (DeFi) space.
Undoubtedly, the completion of the Babylon mainnet upgrade is a major achievement for Radix. This is because it ushers in a significant step forward in the evolution of DeFi while opening up new and exciting opportunities for growth and collaboration in the broader cryptocurrency industry.
Benefits of the Radix Babylon Mainnet Upgrade
Babylon upgrade will see the production launch of the Scrypto programming language and smart contracts, which enable developers to create and execute smart contracts without the need for intermediaries. Likewise, the upgrade introduces powerful tools and features, most importantly, the Radix Mobile Wallet. The Radix Mobile Wallet was designed to provide a means to manage accounts and hold any kind of asset, be it Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), or ERC-20 tokens, without the fear of losing them.
Other features that accompany the upgrade include Radix Connect which enables users to connect their wallet to Decentralized Applications (DApps) via the Radix browser extension; Radix dashboard, and many other exciting features.
One of the key benefits of the Babylon mainnet upgrade is its ability to improve scalability and throughput. By implementing a sharded architecture, Radix can now process a significantly higher number of transactions simultaneously, enabling faster and more efficient transactions across the network.
Additionally, the Babylon mainnet upgrade brings improved security measures to the Radix network. With enhanced consensus mechanisms and advanced cryptographic techniques, Radix guarantees the integrity and immutability of the data stored on its platform. This heightened security is poised to boost confidence among users and investors, leading to increased adoption and utilization of Radix as a reliable decentralized ledger platform.
Buildup on Radix Launch of Olympia Mainnet
Recall that some years ago, Radix announced the launch of the Radix Public Network (mainnet) dubbed Olympia. The release, however, represents a deliberate step on the planned roadmap to a frictionless financial future, bringing with it the world’s only “Single Sign-On Compliance” for any dApp.
Likewise, the Olympia release from Radix signified a generational improvement in the history of decentralized ledger computing, with more than 100 times execution efficiency compared to the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).
Meanwhile, in March, the blockchain-based Web 3.0 startup announced that it raised $10 million in new funding as it continues to bolster its engagement to help chart the evolution of the blockchain ecosystem.
Specifically, Radix said the new funding will be deployed toward the launch of its Babylon Mainnet which will introduce smart contract functionalities for the first time. However, its technological offering as well as its commitment to the evolution of DeFi has made Radix a viable protocol for investors to back.
