Aug 8, 2018 · 2 min read

On 8th of August 2018, the aelf development team announced the first results of the aelf testnet v1.0. Since the testnet launch in July, the team has continued to iterate and optimize the network, including the transaction pool structure, network modules, consensus modules and cluster capabilities. In this round of tests, the team focused primarily on the performance of the parallel processing module. The initial testnet achieved 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), which is an important development in the commercialized application of public chains.

These results were highly successful in verifying the effective performance of both the parallel computing and potentials for scalability. Zhuling Chen, Co-founder and COO of aelf, said, “We have hit 15,000 TPS, and this is just the beginning. Imagine where we will be in 6 or 12 months’ time!”

The testnet is a key milestone that showcases the progress in aelf’s plan to promote commercial adoption of blockchain before the launch of its mainnet in Q1 2019

The results demonstrated that the aelf blockchain is easily scalable under the cluster node environment, assisted by the parallel processing algorithm. The relevant test environment parameters and test procedures have been updated on the aelf official GitHub account.

The aelf team will continue to share the results of further iterations and optimizations publically.
