Distributed Technology Research and its Race Against VISADistributed Technology Research and its Race Against VISA
By Crypto Digest - January 18, 2019

Distributed Technology Research - the non profit organisation consisting academics from MIT to Stanford organized by Pantera Capital - aims to create a super-cryptocurrency. Named Unit-e, the coin will hopefully be able to process as many as 10,000 transactions per second, and is slated to launch during Q3 of 2019. Which would put it ahead of the current cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin has a TPS of 7, Ethereum at 15 and the fastest Ripple which runs at 1,500. However, 10,000 TPS is dwarfed by conventional methods like VISA which reportedly has a TPS of 24,000. It's evident decentralized currencies have a long way to go.
