do I need to maintain with RADB?

Most of all my providers use a route registry and if they don't I would question it. I am all for a route registry but can we adopt one or one of X registries which I think is what is happening. For my ease of management I would like to use one and also pay (and budget) for one since its the same information (or should be).

No. Use of a routing registry is not required.. ARIN's, RADB's or
otherwise. You might want to check out this presentation:
This is an entirely different statement from "Your globally unique IP's
should to be allocated to you in an RIR's database before someone routes
them for you" For example 18.104.22.168/14 is allocated to us, you can
see it in ARIN's whois, but it is not registered in ARIN's IRRD, or any
As further proof - note that people publicly route resources that aren't
registered in a "routing registry database" or even registered to them
by an RIR at all:
I'm not saying this is a good thing.. I would like to see the system
drastically improved and secured.. I'm just pointing out how things
actually work today.
Check w/ your provider, but in most cases you will find that they don't
use a route registry.
