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]).
BSV is the world’s largest public blockchain by all major utility metrics such as data storage and daily transaction volume, scaling ability and average block size. In August, 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.
