One of the things that surprised me following last week's Jepsen report on Radix DLT ( was seeing both blockchain/DLT people *and* the database community go "Hang on, 16 transactions per second can't be right"--and expecting wildly different figures.

In short: DLT folks seemed surprised that the figure wasn't 50 txns/sec. The DB community seemed surprised it wasn't 5,000.

This feels like a significant cultural gap in our collective expectations about what modern distributed systems should do! I'd like to help bridge that gap


@bonzoesc ahahahaha no, I got *so* many messages about this
