Last Updated on April 11, 2018Do watch out blockchain; there’s a new infant in the cradle called Hashgraph. But, will it dethrone the technology and electronic ledger behind bitcoin?
Blockchain, The technology founded by Peter Smith which is behind the leading cryptocurrency Bitcoin is in limelight. A new infant named Hashgraph wants to hi-jack the position for the role in the cryptocurrency scene.
So, what’s the catch? Will Hashgraph be able to grab the leading position as bitcoin? Though there’s certainly a lot of hype surrounding this technology, does Hashgraph really have the potential to overtake potential blockchain?
Before concluding at any point, let’ have an eye over both the technologies.
What’s Hashgraph Exactly?
The Hashgraph is consensus protocol that provides a distributed platform. It allows community users to generate transactions, and agree on the order in which they do transactions where no single user is trusted.
The Hashgraph can achieve a consensus and still acts faster, fair, efficient and inexpensive.
But, Why It Is Better Than Blockchain?
As we know, Hashgraph is a distributed ledger technology system that eliminates the need for massive computation and groundless energy consumption like those of Etherum and bitcoin.
Most importantly, it’s able to reach an agreement. I’ll explain how.
Its 50K times faster as compared to bitcoin and is limited by bandwidth 250,000+ transactions per sharding. Currently, bitcoin is limited to 7 transactions per second.
