Launched about a month ago, the EOS network today reached a new maximum of its bandwidth in 1275 transactions per second and processed about 500,000 transactions over the past 24 hours.
About 13 hours ago, EOS managed to process 800 transactions per second. An hour later, the indicator reached 990 transactions, and later – more than 1,200 transactions. Then the value returned to its normal levels.
At the same time, in the Ethereum network, commissions are growing again, after expensive transactions began to fill up the blockchain on Saturday. Commission for the transaction has already exceeded to $1.
The developer of decentralized applications Justo assumes that EOS played a significant role in the problems of Ethereum. “If you think that this is not EOS, then who can have $2 million a day to attack Ethereum, and EOS tokens?” He said in a conversation with Trustnodes.
He argues that it is EOS that organizes airdrops in the Ethereum blockchain. “I and many other prominent Ethereum application developers have predicted that EOS will attempt to attack Ethereum to make its platform launch more fully. Thousands of random tokens without sites or with template sites spend thousands of ETH every day, hundreds of thousands of dollars. This occurred before the launch of the EOS on June 6, and then immediately ceased. In just one day, gas prices came back to normal,” he said, adding that around June 25 the situation began to repeat itself.
At the peak of the workload of the Ethereum blockchain in December, when the network processed 1.4 million transactions per day, the commissions were about $1. Today, the network processes about 500,000 transactions with commensurate commissions.
The leading developer of EOS Dan Larimer denies these accusations. Commenting on the situation in the Telegram channel, he wrote: “I can guarantee that Block.One is not so stupid as to allocate resources for an ETH attack when CryptoKitties exists for this. There are much more reasonable and less costly ways to attack ETH, if that were our goal.”
In any case, the new EOS records and the ETH congestion look quite a curious coincidence. To reach the figure of 500,000 transactions in 24 hours, Ethereum took 3 years and the game on the blockchain, which suddenly became popular. At the same time, it is difficult to establish how complete the transactions that take place on this day and through the EOS network itself are.
