DisallowIncoming and Others Expected 2023-08-21

Five amendments to the XRP Ledger protocol, all introduced in rippled v1.10.0, have gained support from a majority of validators:

Each amendment that maintains greater than 80% support continuously will become enabled on the expected date.

Action Required

  • If you operate a rippled server, you must upgrade to version 1.10.0 or higher by 2023-08-21, for service continuity. Version 1.11.0 is recommended.
  • If you use the XRP Ledger for your business, review the details of the amendments to make sure your software continues to function as expected after the amendments are in effect.

Impact of Not Upgrading

If you operate a rippled server but don’t upgrade by 2023-08-21, when these amendments are expected to become enabled, then your server will become amendment blocked, meaning that your server:

  • Cannot determine the validity of a ledger
  • Cannot submit or process transactions
  • Does not participate in the consensus process
  • Does not vote on future amendments
  • Could rely on potentially invalid data

If none of the amendments become enabled, then your server will not become amendment blocked and should continue to operate.

Amendment Summaries


Provides options to categorically block incoming checks, payment channels, NFT offers, and trust lines from reaching your account. When an account has these options enabled, other accounts cannot create those types of ledger entries with the account as the destination.

Adds 4 new AccountSet Flags and modifies the AccountSet transaction to allow enabling and disabling them:

  • asfDisallowIncomingCheck
  • asfDisallowIncomingPayChan
  • asfDisallowIncomingNFTOffer
  • asfDisallowIncomingTrustline

Changes transaction processing to check the status of those flags before creating the corresponding type of entry. If the destination account has the flag enabled, the transaction fails with the error code tecNO_PERMISSION.

Without this amendment, any account can create these entries with any destination; while this is usually harmless, it can block an account from later being deleted, and may also be used as part of scams.


This amendment is a combination of bug fixes to NFT functionality:

  • Fix an issue where NFTs could not be burned if there were over 500 offers to buy/sell that NFT. Change NFTokenBurn transactions to remove 500 offers if there are too many, so you can try again and eventually successfully burn the NFT. (PR 4346)
  • Fix issues around accepting NFT trade offers. (PR 4380) These include:
    • Fix a bug where brokering a trade could incorrectly result in an insufficient funds error.
    • Fix a bug that could debit the buyer for more than their (fungible token) balance when they have exactly enough to pay the buy price but not the transfer fee.
    • Fix a bug that prevented fungible token issuers from buying NFTs using their own tokens. Allow issuers to pay for an NFT by issuing new fungible tokens.
  • Fix an issue where, in certain circumstances, brokers could sell an NFT to an account that already owns it. (Issue 4374)
  • Fix a bug that allowed anyone to broker an NFT offer with a fixed destination, instead of only the specified destination. (Issue 4373)


This amendment removes two trust lines from an account to itself that were created due to an old bug (both on 2013-05-07). When the amendment becomes enabled, it deletes trust lines with the IDs 2F8F21EFCAFD7ACFB07D5BB04F0D2E18587820C7611305BB674A64EAB0FA71E1 and 326035D5C0560A9DA8636545DD5A1B0DFCFF63E68D491B5522B767BB00564B1A if they exist.

This amendment has no further effect.


Simplifies and unifies the code for decimal floating point math. In some cases, this provides slightly better accuracy than the previous code, resulting in calculations whose least significant digits are different than when calculated with the previous code. The different results may cause other edge case differences where precise calculations are used, such as ranking of offers or processing of payments that use several different paths.

Without this amendment, the code continues to use separate calculations for STAmount and IOUAmount objects.


Changes OfferCreate transactions so that if an offer uses tfImmediateOrCancel and transaction processing kills the offer without moving any funds, the transaction uses the result code tecKILLED instead of tesSUCCESS. If the offer exchanges any amount of funds, even a small amount, the transaction still uses tesSUCCESS. There are no other changes to the processing of the transaction (for example, in terms of whether it cleans up expired and unfunded offers that were encountered in the ledger during transaction processing).

Without this amendment, "Immediate or Cancel" offers that failed to move any funds returned a tesSUCCESS result code, which could be confusing because the transaction effectively did nothing.
