Founder Dan Larimer Says EOS Blockchain can Process 1,000 Sustainable TPS and Up to 3,000 in All

After creating a ripple in the market through his pre-teaser that EOS has big things coming in the next few months and condemning other cryptos viz. Litecoin, Cardano, and Ethereum, Dan Larimer, the CTO of Block.One took to Twitter to engage the community on TPS.

He asked the community their preference when it comes to a blockchain that processed 10,000 transactions per second or sidechains that collectively processes 10k TPS.

In response to a user pointing out the last year's report claiming EOS performs only 50 TPS, Larimer commented,

“Our tests show over 1000 sustainable tps and in some cases over 3000.”

Back in July, Larimer had tweeted that EOS was performing over 2,300 TPS. However, Whiteblock, a blockchain testing company published the results of the first independent testing of the EOS software reporting, with real-world conditions, EOS performance was below 50 TPS that put its system in “close proximity” to the Ethereum’s performance.

It had also stated that EOS is not a blockchain either, rather a “distributed homogeneous database management system”, due to the fact that their transactions are not cryptographically validated.

Majority of the responses to Larimer’s original question has been the sidechains. Sidechains are basically extensions of the existing blockchains that enhance their functionality and capabilities and allow the seamless transfers of assets on blockchains. One enthusiast said:

“500 side chains that each process 10,000 tps,” to this, Larimer commented, “While we are making up options.. how about 1 chain doing 5m tps?”

EOS Tops the Market

After being at the first position in China’s blockchain ranking for 10 times in a row, Weiss Ratings in its latest annual report gave it a grade A stating:

“EOS is the leading coin challenging Ethereum to become the backbone of the new internet.”

Talking about its stats, Weiss Ratings shared that the daily on-chain transactions of EOS grew from $7k in February 2018 to about $4.6 million this month. This has been 14 times more volume than the top cryptocurrency Bitcoin and about eight times more than Ethereum’s reported Weiss Ratings.

Furthermore, the top spot in terms of user transaction that was previously occupied by Steem (that too founded by Dan Larimer) with 1.56 million per day in February 2018, has been now replaced by EOS with 4.56 million.

EOS up 60 percent in 2019
