Insolar is launching the Testnet 1.1 of its open sourced, enterprise focused blockchain platform with participation of external nodes in its network.
It says that a number of corporate and academic partners have reserved their nodes. The Swiss technical University ETH Zurich and Toronto’s York University will be taking part.
In January, the venture launched its Testnet 1.0 with a throughput of over 10,000 transactions per second on 20 nodes. 1.1 coincides with recent improvements in the performance of the Insolar platform. It claims that these have enabled network throughput to increase to over 16,000 transactions per second on 20 nodes. “This makes it the most scalable blockchain platform for enterprise worldwide. As an example, PayPal can only handle 193 transactions per second,” the company states.
