How far are we from the promised land?

+1 vote

I'm just wondering of how far are Multichain from being able to be implemented in a credit card company like Visa or Mastercard, where millions of transactions happen every day.

What would have to change to accomplish such mission?

If I just add right now 10.000 or 1M nodes would solve it?

Thank you .

Adding nodes doesn't help with scalability since every node still has to process every transaction.

Right now MultiChain can handle around 200 tx/sec on regular low-end hardware, which, allowing for peaks and troughs, translates to around 10 million transactions per day. It can handle more on higher-end hardware.

So perhaps we are already in the promised land?
