DASH’s One-Day Stress Test Hits Unprecedented Record of 3.5 Million Transactions


Dash, the 13th largest digital currency by market capitalization, has exceeded all the other leading digital currencies across the market in terms of transaction volume after executing a stress test that has resulted in an unprecedented 3.5 million successful transactions in a 24-hour period without any network gridlock.

Launched on the Dash network on November 11 and run by Delta Engine, the firm behind MyDashWallet, the pre-planned stress test has since triggered a massive transaction volume, surpassing all the top cryptocurrencies’ all-time high transactions, including that of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and XRP, according to the data aggregated by Bitinfocharts.

Dash’s latest blockchain stress test, which went live on stresstest.mydashwallet.org, follows a previous impromptu stress test launched in July that has resulted in over 700,000 successful transactions in a single day. The latest stress test has since caused quite a stir in the whole community, eclipsing Bitcoin Cash’s all-time high 24-hour transaction volume of 2.1 million, said Mark Mason, director of Media & PR at Dash.

As Mason stated in a recent Twitter post:

“I would like to extend a big thank you to Delta engine and MyDashWallet for orchestrating the test test, the final transaction count for the 24-hour period was over 3 million, which is new record and all-time high the number of transactions achieved by a Bitcoin-based blockchain.”

He went on explaining that:

“These stress tests are not just for bragging right, we need to test and push the blockchain to its limits to identify problem areas to improve upon. Those have claimed that on chain scaling wasn’t possible in the past have been proved wrong. This is only the beginning.”
