Stellar’s Recent Noteworthy Developments
Recently, Stellar completed its scheduled Protocol 12 update successfully, effectively eliminating inflation in the XLM protocol. After lengthy discussions, the Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) decided that the inflation mechanism prior to the Protocol 12 update was not beneficial for projects building on the platform and would spur scalability issues in future. SDF announced new proposals for the update in late September and these modifications were successfully integrated a few days ago.
Following the Protocol 12 update, Binance announced that it would only distribute XLM staking rewards within the first five days of November before discontinuing the XLM staking program.
Also, Travala, a crypto-focused travel, and hotel booking service, recently added Stellar and Cardano as native payment options for bookings.
