SKALE, a multichain network with over 19 live zero-gas EVM blockchains, has been ranked as the top network for speed of transactions and finality out of 8 of the largest networks according to Dartmouth Blockchain Group. The study included networks such as Ethereum, Solana, Near, Avalanche, Polygon, Fantom, and Flow.

Among the 8 blockchains tested, SKALE had the fastest transactions per second (TPS), followed closely by Solana. SKALE was nearly 30 times faster than Ethereum, the blockchain it is designed to scale. SKALE also achieved the fastest finality at 1.46 seconds, with only three other blockchains achieving sub-2 second times.

It’s often difficult to determine the accuracy of claims made by blockchains regarding the speed of their transactions and finality. To provide developers with third-party benchmarking, Dartmouth Blockchain Group conducted an independent analysis of the top 8 blockchain networks. The group consulted with various developers who developed for these chains and dapp developers in the broader community.

According to the report, SKALE was praised for its technical infrastructure, commitment to supplying computing resources, concrete roadmap, and goals for the future.

For more details about the analysis and testing methodology, the Dartmouth Blockchain Op Ed and White Paper are available.

For those interested in SKALE, there are additional resources available, such as SKALE’s network stats, Discord community, documentation on deploying a dapp to SKALE, and information about the SKALE $SKL token.

SKALE is an Ethereum native, modular blockchain network that offers high-throughput, low-latency blockchains optimized for Web3 user experience. It features zero gas fees for end-users and advanced features for on-chain file storage, interchain messaging, zero-cost minting, ML/AI smart contracts, and enhanced security. Developers can easily deploy their own EVM blockchain on the SKALE network without sacrificing speed, security, or decentralization.
