Ripple Introduces Codius – A New Platform for Smart Contracts for the XRP Blockchain


Developers at Ripple are planning to release a new platform for smart contracts named Codius. When launched, it will grant XRP the similar functionality as the one that Ethereum can offer. Ripple users will be able to lock into these smart contracts which will be blockchain-secured.


What is there to know about Codius

Codiusis a new platform for smart contracts that is currently still in development by the Ripple (XRP) team. It was mentioned in various headlines since the end of the last year when Ripple announced the development of the project. Even so, the name Codius was first mentioned in 2014, but the project was canceled by June of the following year. According to Ripple, the project was canceled because the market was not yet ready for smart contracts.
The project was re-launched in November 2017, and it has been in development since.
Ripple’s tagline for the project says “Where smart programs live”. It is supposed to be an open hosting protocol, and its design will allow the creation of a system that will support smart contract and add them to Ripple’s ecosystem.
The whitepaper from 2014 explains the platform in detail, and it was published by Ripple Labs chief technology officer Stefan Thomas, as well as Evan Schwartz.
The whitepaper describes Codius as a way to make the process of decentralization much easier. They also wish to improve the Ripple network’s capabilities, so that it would become the best-decentralized solution for the ecosystem involving financial institutions like banks or big enterprises.
The details about the project’s current status are not known for now. There is no launch date, and Ripple seems to be keeping very quiet about its advancement. As far as we know now, the platform could be launched this summer, or it could be a complete backburner, there is simply no way of telling.

How will Codius add smart contracts?

According to what is currently known, the latest version of this platform is still being developed. However, once it goes live, it should be able to offer several features.
Those will include multiple things like speed, for example. Codius is expected to be as fast as native Ripple, according to the known information. Next, it is also expected to have extreme security, with its sandboxing being called the state of the art. Rogue smart contracts won’t be able to target any of the network’s critical components thanks to the fact that applications will be completely isolated from each other, as well as from the host.
Another feature will involve JavaScript so that learning programming languages won’t be necessary in order for one to use Codius. It will also offer the use of the micropayments system that will be already built-in so that the applications can pay each other with ease.
Its design will even be integrated for enterprise and banking roles, which will make Codius one of the crucial components for the financial network of Ripple.
Finally, it will also be able to connect to pretty much anything that has an internet connection.

When will it go live

This is a project shrouded in mystery, and not much is known about it, even after all this time. It was announced 4 years ago but canceled 3 years ago, Last year, it was brought back, but it isn’t clear what is going on with its development as of May 2018.
Whatever is going on, everyone who is waiting for this project’s release date will simply have to be patient and wait for some news from Ripple.

What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?

It will probably require a hard fork for the xrp blockchain. Anyway it's good to have an alternative to eth and waves.
Cardano is the most promising 3 gen. crypto right now.
