Credits, a scalable blockchain platform built for business applications today presented the results of its internal platform testing. On Friday, 14 September 2018, the Credits team performed a capacity test of the Credits platform using 32 geographically distributed nodes.
The test was designed to showcase a stable platform and provide an indication of transactions per second (TPS) with a high level of simulated transactions.
- 32 nodes with both Windows and Linux operating systems meant to exhibit cross-platform interoperability;
- Nodes were located in 5 countries – Canada, Germany, Australia, Poland, Latvia to provide a realistic geographically distributed testing environment;
- 5 nodes were equipped with transaction generators to simulate network loading;
- Increasing Network load was simulated by adding 275 transactions per second until the maximum load was reached.
