Ithaca introduces Monitoring and Pathfinding services that can be run on top of a Raiden Node making Raiden a more usable and robust Network not just a collection of individual payment channels. Like the name suggests this service, provided by a Raiden Node, will assist with finding paths between unconnected parties that is parties that do not have direct payment channels open with each other.
The Raiden Network like a Internet of Payment will then use this Pathfinding Service to connect up parties for payment. The major advantage over Red Eyes here is that the Pathfinding Service reduces the payment latency speeding up the payment process between parties. The Ithaca release will also introduce Monitoring Services. Those Raiden Nodes offering the service will monitor payment channels for users ensuring that no malicious activity takes place between parties whilst one party is offline.
As an Auxiliary Service, the Raiden Nodes providing Monitoring and Pathfinding Services will in turn get paid peripheral fees by the users that connect via a light client for services provided when using the Raiden Network. These two services Pathfinding and Monitoring Nodes will also allow added potential usability options in the future such as connection to the Raiden Network without having to run a full Raiden Node. Instead they will be able to connect via a light client directly to the Raiden Payment Channel Network.
The beauty with the Raiden Network is that as it grows, the faster it becomes. More payment channels allows for quicker transactions as the network like the internet finds shorter transaction paths between parties, especially so after the Ithaca release. A successful Raiden Node will be provide users with balanced channels for payments to route through them as well as auxiliary services for their customers.
A fully functioning Raiden Network will assist with the transaction load of the Ethereum Network by taking the smaller transactions off chain whilst actually making Ethereum a more usable and attractive Network in terms of the scalability options offered. The Raiden Network on Layer 2 offers another string to the Ethereum bow by allowing Ethereum to scale payment transactions currently the number one reason for the existence of currencies.
If you believe in the Internet of Things IoT story then you believe that micro payments and technologies like mesh networks are gonna be big. Raiden can assist with managing this type of payment transaction load off the main chain in Layer 2 for Ethereum. If you believe in the decentralized finance and the stable coin story then you believe that we will use decentralized financial products and stability coins going forward to make payments as part of our daily transactions.
If you believe in the decentralized exchange story then you believe that decentralized exchanges are going to be a big feature in the financial tech landscape. If you believe in the smart contract story where decentralized autonomous contracts manage multiple payment transactions between parties.
If you believe in the Ethereum story then Layer 2 technology like the Raiden Network is essential for scaling and making payment transactions within the smart contract blockchain space usable in the real world. To understand the value of the RDN token one needs to understand the fee structure and future governance model of the Raiden Network. The Raiden Network has two fee structures:. These fees are paid in the ERC20 token being transferred. These fees can only be avoided if a direct payment channel is open between the two parties and no intermediaries are used.
Now if the only purpose for using the Raiden Network was to establish single Payment Channels between parties that are known to each other and if brute force recursive query of nodes was acceptable for path finding then there would be no need for the RDN token. However this limits the scope of the Raiden Network. If the Raiden Network is to become a central player in the payment transactions of the Ethereum Network then the use of Auxiliary Services will become a prerequisite of making full use of the power and speed of the Raiden Network.
Peripheral Fees — are the fees that are are payable by the user for using any Auxiliary Services that run on top of the Raiden Network. Auxiliary Services currently planned on the Raiden Network:. Network Governance — The RDN token has also been suggest to be used to govern and manage the growth and development of the network protocol.
As both a utility and governing token it will incentivise parties using and actively invested in the Raiden Network to acquire the RDN token to ensure they have a larger say in the governance of the protocol. It is also worth noting that as the Raiden Network grows, has dApps built to use it and potential integrations into other EVM networks that there may be other uses for the RDN token within the Raiden Network going forward but for now these are the current proposed uses of the RDN token.
Like Ethereum, the Raiden Network is a first stepper in its respective space — Layer 2 technology and it already has a few years head start on the competition. To understand where we are in the development lifecycle of this space, then the current Layer 2 technology is probably where Ethereum was 4 years ago.
Very few projects and teams are involved in this space, in fact the majority of teams involved in studying and developing this technology appear in the above photo and are working on Layer 2 for Ethereum. Being so new it is a very exciting space and is going to become more and more important to the Blockchain landscape in the next few years. The Ethereum Foundation has already realised this and it is for this reason that they are providing and offering so many grants towards Layer 2 technology.

Payment channels. Simplified state channels that only deal with payments (e.g. ETH transfers). They allow off-chain transfers between two participants, as long. A payment channel is a technique designed to allow users to make a series of off-chain payments. So, it can facilitate multiple cryptocurrency trades without. With over 9 million transactions AdEx Network is currently the largest payment channel network on Ethereum. Here's how we did it.
