Waves Tests Claim Blockchain Speeds in Throughput and Transactions Timebr>
Blockchain platform Waves recently ran a series of experiments to learn the true capacity of its blockchain. During load testing, more than 6.3 million transactions were submitted to the Waves MainNet, with a claimed throughput of more than 900 tx/sec and a transaction approval time of seconds.
Throughput limits are a major issue in the blockchain space, and a factor frequently cited by critics, with many blockchains incapable of dealing with more than single-digit tx/sec.
The final results of the stress test claimed by Waves:
- Test period: 24 hours
- Total transactions: 6,373,401
- 479,604 tx/hour (peak number)
- 12,176 tx/min (peak number)
- 911 tx/sec (peak number)
Waves claims the volume of transactions was processed without any disruption to the network’s regular load. DEX orders, transfers, and token creation were unaffected.
