LOS ANGELES, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Whiteblock Inc., the world's first blockchain testing company, today announced completion of a performance analysis report conducted for their latest client, Ubiq Technologies. Ubiq collaborated with Whiteblock's Blockchain Testing as a Service (BTaaS) team to benchmark performance and identify the correlation between block gas limits and transactional throughput for the Ubiq blockchain platform.
Whiteblock's BTaaS conducted the same test cases on both Ubiq and Ethereum networks with an equal number of nodes, transactional activity, and network conditions. Test results indicated that Ubiq presents a higher degree of stability in comparison to Ethereum at higher gas limits. Specifically, the test report concluded, Ubiq's transactional throughput is more than twice as high as that of Ethereum's when gas limits are raised to levels up to 40 million and beyond.
"We're really happy with the test results. We now know our scalability changes will work in practice and not just in theory. These results are going to shape our future development efforts and make it easier to demonstrate these changes to the community," said Alex Sterk CEO of Ubiq Technologies.
Whiteblock announced its BTaaS at Toronto's Edcon in May of this year, and the company has a number of high-profile blockchain technology companies scheduled to evaluate system performance and security, validate transaction speeds, and accelerate their time to market.
Many blockchain companies make claims on scalability and transactions per second without independently verifying these metrics. In a world of whitepapers and marketing lingo, Whiteblock provides an independent, objective method of validating performance claims. Adequate pre-deployment testing helps development teams avoid network failures like those resulting from the CryptoKitties incident of 2017. It's critical that development teams have the ability to anticipate performance under suboptimal conditions when failure to deliver could significantly diminish credibility and investor confidence.
"Whiteblock test framework is blockchain agnostic," said Neal Roche, Whiteblock CEO. "We're running performance tests on other leading blockchains such as Ethereum, EOS and Hyperledger. Whiteblock's established testing methodology and tooling has been proven to accurately test complex networks at scale. Customers can easily validate performance, conduct due diligence, or run competitive benchmarks for a number of technologies and systems."
