Test Finds that Ethereum Block Production Cut Down to Twice as Fast


Akomba Labs, a Blockchain advisory and product development firm, conducted an examination on the Ethereum network that shows it can double the speed of block propagation.


According to a Coindesk report dated back November 27, the firm mentioned above collaborated with BIoXroute, the scalability-focused blockchain startup. The two firms ran a two-week examination to measure the results of integrating the Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN) of BIoXroute on the Ethereum network.


The approach of the BIoXroute is a layer zero solution that decreases the size of a transaction to speed up the block propagation time.


It was found out on the test that the average performance of block propagation improved greatly. From 360 milliseconds, the propagation was cut down to 172 milliseconds with the integration of BDN. This is less than half of the current Ethereum block production.


The Blockchain advisory firm utilized data from a Chinese mining pool as a part of the two-week test.


Furthermore, the test result also specified that the farce with regards to Ethereum scalability could potentially be solved using BDN.


The chief executive officer of BIoXroute Uri Klarman stated Ethereum loses its momentum compared to any Blockchain due to the adaptability blockage. Also, the said digital currency is losing its shares in the market.


BIoXroute’s CEO also noted that BDN would be progressively introduced to larger pools as it currently runs in some mining pools. According to a Twitter post by Klarman, BDN is about making the Ethereum network larger without making it slower, rather than solely making the network faster.
