xChange Blockchain uses RAFT consensus algorithm that keeps your data safe without needing to “mine” blocks, even in the case of a situation where your nodes malfunction or become susceptible to the actions of bad actors. This feature also makes it near impossible for a bad actor to add incorrect data or change the history of the xChange Blockchain. In case of many compromised nodes, the RAFT consensus algorithm still maintains its fundamental security properties, protecting the data. xChange Blockchain also updates immediately with the addition of every new block. This consensus algorithm also allows your up to 8,000 transactions per second (within a global, distributed network) with a clearing latency of 2.5 seconds, and can handle up to 15,000 TPS in custom cases. Consensus Performance: xChange handles up to 8,000 transactions per second with a clearing latency of 2.5 seconds, and can handle up to 15,000 TPS in custom situations. Consensus Resilience: xChange Blockchain can function even if up to 1/3 of the nodes in the xChange Blockchain network are offline or compromised. Consensus Safety: In the rare case all of xChange Blockchain nodes are compromised, bad actors cannot circumvent fundamental security properties.
