Next generation architecture achieves unprecedented scalability for everyday currency payments comparable to mainstream global card processing systems
Blockchain has long been criticised for failing to accommodate a competitive transaction load with architectural limitations requiring huge amounts of computing power to process cryptocurrencies at scale. Billon’s DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology), developed over five year, has taken a different approach with a next generation architecture capable of processing real currency without the use of miners or 3rd party exchanges. Its new scalability benchmark, achieved under industry-standard ‘Black-box’ test conditions, proves that Billon’s system can provide a credible alternative to the likes of Visa and MasterCard.
Simon Taylor, Co-Founder, 11:FS, the leading Blockchain and fintech consultancy, said, “It’s encouraging to see examples of benchmarking Blockchain/DLT in production environments for regulated currency. As corporates move from pilots to production, fact-based architecture analysis such as this provides the basis for good decision-making.”
Andrzej Horoszczak, Founder & CEO of Billon, explained, “We are pleased that these results validate the hard work of our team of world class engineers, especially as our benchmark test was conducted on a global cloud network. This is the exact same production code that has been deployed in places like the United Kingdom. In the next stages, we will be able to add more nodes to achieve even faster throughput.”
