Scalability
Currently supports 15 TPS as it is on the Ethereum platform. Will be able to support up to 1000 TPS once main net launches
1000 TPS capacity for now. Developed with scaling in mind. Provides flexibility in size and throughput depending on the implementation.

A Performance and Scalability Workgroup exists within the community to discuss, research, and identify key use cases and metrics for all blockchains.
