A new investigate by a Initiative for CryptoCurrencies and Contracts (IC3) during a Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute authored by Christian Decker, Ittay Eyal, Andrew Miller and Emin Gün Sirer, among others, found that bitcoin’s blocksize could now scale adult to 4MB but inspiring decentralization.

According to a recently expelled position paper, On Scaling Decentralized Blockchains, 4,000 Bitcoin nodes were tested and per-node bandwidth opening was measured. The investigate found that 90%, of a then, 4565 bitcoin nodes (currently station during some-more than 7,000), can continue to work during 4MB blocks, translating to approximately 27 exchange per second, distant some-more than a stream unsentimental extent of approximately 2.5 exchange per second.

The study [PDF] reveals some distinguished formula in display that 50% of bitcoin’s nodes, that is approximately 2,500 nodes, would not be influenced by a blocksize of only underneath 40MB, translating to 250 exchange per second or approximately 10 million exchange a day. Furthermore, 10% of a bitcoin network, that is roughly 500 bitcoin nodes, can currently work underneath a blocksize
