The BSV network is used by both public and private entities as the basis for their blockchain-based applications because of its unique ability to scale unbounded, enabling diverse data functionality, micro and nano-payments, enhanced capacity and massive throughput capabilities (the BSV network demonstrated 50,000 transaction per second throughput earlier this year during a live test), all at a predictably low cost (the median transaction fee on the BSV network in 2020 was less than 1/50th of a U.S. cent [reported data from bitinfocharts.com]).
Earlier this month, the BSV network set a world record when a 2 gigabyte (GB) block was successfully mined on its blockchain – the largest ever mined on a public blockchain. The new world record was set at block height 700606 on August 16, 2021, at 15:20:11 (UTC), containing 1,999,941,397 bytes of data.
