💬 Protocol 14 is around the corner! To celebrate I wanted to highlight some of the CAPs included in this upcoming release.
CAP-0023: Two part payment with Claimable balance entry — This proposal introduces new operations that separate sending a payment from receiving the payment. The introduction of a claimable balance entry helps anchors get around the chicken/egg trustline conundrum. You can read some of the conversations around CAP-0023 here.
CAP-0033: Sponsored Reserve — This proposal makes it possible to pay reserves for another account. Additionally, this implementation allows the account sponsor to retain control over the funds used to sponsor an account. You can read the conversations around CAP-0033 here (where it started as CAP-0031).
CAP-0034: Preserve Transaction-Set/Close-Time Affinity During Nomination (consensus) — This proposal makes the nomination protocol select the close time from the single candidate whose transaction set it selects (rather than the current protocol’s selection of the maximum close time of all candidates), and preserve the signature of the chosen <close time, transaction set> pair. CAP-0034 is a bit in the weeds, but you can find the conversations around it here.
