Chat at top speed
In comparison with other popular messengers, ADAMANT is more secure and private when it comes to messaging. However, there is one disadvantage in our application: messaging speed amounts to 2–7 seconds. Other P2P-messengers send and deliver texts in approximately 1 second or less.
Response time: explained
Blockchain ecosystems are relatively new to the development field. Many of these projects, including ADAMANT, are unique and have no alternatives. At the very beginning of our path, we adopted other blockchain projects’ solutions or developed them from scratch. Over time, our team welcomed young and promising developers with a fresh perspective, gained experience and came up with more effective solutions.
When Alice sends a message to Bob, a node will receive it. After that, the message switches to another block. Block time in ADAMANT amounts to 5 seconds. Consequently, delay time is 1–4 seconds.
Bob’s messenger broadcasts HTTP requests to a node every 5 seconds in order to receive new messages. Here is another time delay, again from 1 to 4 seconds.
When Alice sends a message, Bob will see it in 2–7 seconds.
Supersonic ADAMANT is coming soon
Delay time can be fixed in the following ways:
- Make unconfirmed transactions visible (the ones that are confirmed only by receiver-nodes). Response time drops from 1–4 seconds to 1–2 seconds.
- Maintain socket service (instead of HTTP requests). Response time drops from 1–4 seconds to 0–1 seconds.
- Make socket service support both node-to-node and client-to-node networks. Response time boosts by 1–2 seconds.
All the mentioned above solutions will boost delivery time. Consequently, it will drop from 2–7 seconds to 0–2 seconds. Our team will start with client apps and then switch to nodes. Gradually, ADAMANT will include all the described features.
The ADAMANT team has already developed a demo version and is ready to share the news with you.
