The Ethereum Merge and How it Affects GoChain

How GoChain Solved the Issues Ethereum 2.0 is Supposed to Solve

GoChain was started over 4 years ago to solve these very issues. It’s literally the reason it exists. The original goals of GoChain was to be:

  • 100x faster — handle 100x the volume of Ethereum, hence the 1300 transactions per second target vs Ethereum’s 13
  • 1000x cheaper — Instead of dollars for transactions, GoChain has always been sub-penny
  • 10,000x greener — our unique Proof of Reputation consensus paved the way for this, and GoChain is actually closer to 10,000,000x greener

Proof of Reputation

GoChain’s unique Proof of Reputation consensus is really what makes GoChain special. Instead of Proof of Work or Proof of Stake which are the most common in today’s blockchains, we came up with our own consensus protocol to help us achieve our goals.


You know and trust who’s running the network, unlike every other blockchain network out there. Not only should this give you peace of mind, but if you’re a company that doesn’t want to associate with bad actors, GoChain is your best blockchain choice.


The main way to attack a blockchain is called a 51% attack. In order to pull it off, the attackers must gain control of more than 50% of a blockchain network’s nodes. This has happened on several Proof of Work blockchains. In order for this attack to work on GoChain, you would have to hack into more than half of our node operator’s data centers at the same time. It’s hard enough to do this to one organization, let alone a dozen.


By having a group of organizations run the nodes and the fact they aren’t battling each other over a very wasteful hash battle to win a block, the GoChain blockchain uses millions of times less energy than Bitcoin or Ethereum.

What’s Next?

Our goal is to have 25 nodes by the end of 2022 and 35 by the end of 2023, adding more reputational quality to the network.
