Blockchain Bitcoin Cash in the course of the stress test had processed 2.2 million transactions
Torn by internal contradictions the community Bitcoin Cash got a legitimate reason for pride. During the stress test weekend blockchain per day processed 2.2 million transactions, which was a new record for public blockchains.
The results of the stress test suggest that Bitcoin Cash is quite capable of working with blocks of size up to 10 MB — theoretically, this means up to 50 thousand transactions per block, or up to 7 million transactions per day.
The current limit block size, apparently, is 21 MB — this unit managed to get within half an hour after the stress test. It is also a record for all public blockchains. However, it was an isolated case — the amount of rest obtained during the stress test blocks did not exceed 10 MB. Recall that after the may hard forks network the maximum block size increased to 32 MB.
The average size of the fee was $0,0017, median — $0,0014 per transaction.
Recall that in mid-November, hardwork Bitcoin Cash, the cause of which is disagreement developers on how to scale the network developed into a public conflict with mutual accusations.

However, there is a third option, which recently announced Cobra, the owner of the domain Bitcoin.org.
