The blockchain accelerator – developed on IBM Blockchain Platform by Sweden-based software house BlueBarricade Blockchain & AI Technology AB – has achieved new performance levels in the global market for high-speed enterprise blockchain. Performance tests have been conducted with the support of HCL and IBM.

Global demands on the high-speed enterprise blockchain market are growing. Research and advisory company Gartner made predictions that blockchain technology will create business values at a level of 3.1 trillion USD by the year 2030.

With recent performance tests conducted by BlueBarricade, with the support of HCL and IBM, speed and scalability have now been improved. The tests took place at individual locations with an international test team, focusing on performance goals and functionality respectively. (For technical details, see footnote below.)

“Five weeks of testing was a success in reference to the goals that were set up for the project,” says Lars Bäck, co-founder of BlueBarricade. “Our product can consistently perform 1,400 blockchain transactions per second on large multi-tenant and multi-peer installations.”
