The blockchain headlines were recently overrun with news of DasCoin implementing the platform’s Graphene technology and subsequently dropping the blocktime by an impressive 50 percent. As a quick reminder, DasCoin is known as the Currency of Trust and a crucial part of the DasEcosystem. With the blocktime cut in half, the DasCoin Blockchain is twice as quick as it was previously.
About the New Speed
Before the implementation of Graphene technology, DasCoin Blockchain had a blocktime of six seconds, which has been reduced by 50 percent down to three seconds. Based on that incredible blockchain speed, DasCoin Blockchain is now officially one of the top blockchains in terms of speed, no matter where in the world you are. DasCoin will not be taking this dramatic doubling of blockchain speed as an indication that it earned a well-needed break. Instead, the team will work hard to maintain its status as one of the fastest blockchains. DasCoin’s team prides itself on providing users with a first-class experience. To do this, it strives to be the most secure, most reliable, and fastest settlement system.
Why a Speed Increase Was Necessary
It is common for developers behind blockchains to work toward faster speeds, as this directly improves transaction processing time, which indirectly enhances scalability. The team at DasCoin had a more specific motivation for increasing its speed. It has made both speed and scalability priorities due to the constant growth of its DasNet, which made now the ideal time to implement the Graphene technology to get a speed boost. Additionally, DasCoin’s ecosystem will soon be including a payment solution, which it assumes will lead to an increase in transaction volume, further requiring the scalability and efficiency associated with increased speed.
How DasCoin Blockchain Doubled Its Speed
The team at DasCoin knew it had to take a unique approach to double its speed since if it was easy to do, every blockchain would do it. DasCoin was able to decrease its blocktime thanks to Graphene, which is the underlying technology for the blockchain with a unique governance system. Most blockchains have a governance system that requires all users and servers to update the software before its critical operational parameters can be fine-tuned. Graphene is able to bypass this requirement, allowing for near real-time tuning of those parameters. This makes it possible for Graphene technology to lead to modifying the critical parameters of a system in as little as a half hour.
