Want speed? January’s Lookback solidifies SKALE as the fastest blockchain network!
Closing the month on a high note! SKALE leads the pack as the fastest blockchain network for dApps, according to a Dartmouth Blockchain Group Report. A new benchmarking study was conducted by DBG testing eight blockchain networks, including Solana, Polygon, Avalanche, Near, Ethereum, and more, to better understand their TPS (transaction per second) and finality/latency speeds.
The results showed that SKALE has the fastest TPS of all the tested blockchains and was 19x faster than Polygon and 30x faster than Ethereum on TPS. Additionally, SKALE achieved the fastest finality at 1.46 seconds, with only three blockchains achieving sub 2 second times.
SKALE is off to a great start this year, gaining even more recognition outside the SKALEverse as one of CV VC’s Top 50 Companys! The report showcases the development of the top-performing blockchain and crypto ecosystem across the Swiss Crypto Valley. Stagger statistics present the Top 50 CV VC blockchain platform's market capitalization amounts to $175.6B! Check out more impressive stats from the report here.
Two more dApps were added to the SKALEverse this month! First, PRIMAL, the 1st athlete fan token project represented by sports stars with millions of fans with integrated Move2Earn, is building on SKALE! PRIMAL has partnerships with notable companies such as Fitbit, Apple, Oura, and Whoop. Plus, it's supported by Step App, DAO Maker, and Green Machine. Not only is there a Move2Earn component with PRIMAL, but users can also pay $PRIMAL into athlete vaults. PRIMAL has signed agreements with 250+ sports stars worldwide, with the first fan token announced recently! To check out the full announcement, click here.
SKALE has continued to make blockchain gaming more user-friendly, with zero gas fees for end users and fast transactions. That is why Kryptoria, a blockchain-powered strategy game that offers its 15,000 users true digital asset ownership through blockchain technology, is building on SKALE!
Kryptoria is an immersive 4X and RTS game enabled by the Ethereum blockchain that encourages players to build an empire in the world of Kryptoria through economic, technological, and military power. Set in a futuristic sci-fi world, players can trade, fight for, and upgrade their assets. All on-platform transactions are made in Ellerium, the currency of Kryptoria. SKALE’s unique architecture and zero gas fees will help Kryptoria lower the barrier of entry for new users entering the crypto and digital goods space. Read more about the Kryptoria Partnership.
