Hoskinson Suggests Performance for Cardano Similar to Solana Later This Year

At the time of this writing, the Solana network holds the record for most transactions per second on a live blockchain. The protocol is able to process up to 65,000 transactions per second, and on some occasions it has gone above that number. For this reason, Solana has become the gold standard in the industry when it comes to throughput.

The first piece to deliver scalability will happen in June with the Vasil hard fork. After, the second piece is Mithril, a sidechain interoperable with the main Cardano network. It will be a lightweight protocol with a stake-based threshold signature scheme. This will reduce the redundant work the nodes have to perform to secure the network.

After, the next step is the delivery of Hydra. A set of state channels that are able to be created on-demand. These channels are able to process transactions outside the main network and only the final result is locked in the Cardano ledger.

The road ahead still has several milestones to reach before Cardano and Solana have comparable TPS performance. In the meantime, security on Cardano has proven to be more robust than on Solana, who has seen several DDoS attacks in recent months.
