Starknet, Layer 2 of the Ethereum blockchain, has upgraded to “Quantum Leap” on July 12th.
Quantum Leap was voted on by the community last week after being rolled out on testnet Goerli, with 97.91% of voters agreeing to push it to mainnet.
According to the team at StarkWare, which operates the Starknet blockchain, transactions per second (TPS) peaked at 90 a few times during the test, but was almost consistently 37 TPS. Starkware previously told CoinDesk that TPS after Quantum Leap will reach triple digits.
Starkware CEO Uri Kolodny acknowledged the undershoot in a press release. “This upgrade could hit hundreds of TPS during the third quarter, and we wanted to make sure we were on target in our stress tests. I can say that it was exciting and we were able to achieve more than we expected.”
In addition, the “Time-to-Inclusion”, the time required to confirm and report a transaction, was about 10 seconds, higher than expected.
“The numbers speak for themselves. The numbers are an invitation to all developers, wherever they are, to test this network,” Collodney said.
According to the project roadmap, Starknet plans to upgrade later this year, aiming to increase the scalability of the blockchain by reducing transaction fees and shortening block intervals.
