CryptoCurrency : Credits Showcases over a Million Transactions per Second During 1 stage of Platform Load Testing
On September 14, [Credits](https://credits.com/) performed a capacity test of its blockchain platform in a real life environment using thirty two geographically distributed nodes and broadcasted it [live on Youtube](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-uLi4sU9OI). The test showed that the Credits blockchain platform can perform a peak number of 1,327,152 transactions per second with the average load of 130,400 transactions per second, a result that so far has not been reached by any other blockchain platform.
The test was aimed to showcase a stable operation of the platform and provide an indication of transactions per second. The environment was designed to fully imitate real-life conditions. Thirty two nodes operating on both Windows and Linux systems exhibited cross-platform interoperability. The nodes, equipped with transaction generators to simulate network loading, were located in Canada, Germany, Australia, Poland, Latvia provided a realistic geographically distributed testing environment. Network load was simulated by adding 275 transactions per second until the maximum capacity was reached.
*“We made another step towards solving the key existing blockchain problems – scalability, security, and decentralisation. The test proves that our platform is capable of coping with the scalability factor, with the solutions for the other two on the way. In addition, we continuously expand the number of partnerships with businesses from various industries, thus contributing to blockchain adoption worldwide.”,* – commented Igor Chugunov, Credits CEO & Founder.
