The Radix project had conducted visual testing of the capabilities of its technology in a “live” format.
According to the announcement on Twitter, testing begun 12.06 at 9:30 Eastern time. During the process, Radix promised to reproduce all transactions from the Bitcoin blockchain, that had been recorded there for 10 years of cryptocurrency existence. The entire procedure is expected to take less than one hour. Thus, the project intends to demonstrate the bandwidth and scalability of the solution created by it.

Team was able to perform successful test in 15 minutes. That's 4 times less than expected. Impressive result.
Radix is developing an alternative to the blockchain technology, with which it shares characteristics such as decentralization and protection against unauthorized access, but at the same time it is more scalable and easier to handle for developers. To do this, the project uses database sharding, which ensures linear scalability of registries.
