- IOTA plans to launch the first phase of its Chrysalis update next week.
- The updated network is expected to process 1000 TPS.
- The upgrade will include many scalability improvements.
IOTA is all set to launch the first phase of its Chrysalis project, the beginning of a series of upgrades leading up to IOTA 1.5. The new upgrade includes several improvements to the network. The IOTA Foundation noted that Chrysalis will bring “significant performance, usability, and reliability upgrades,” including the capacity to process 1,000 transactions per second (TPS). It will also be able to confirm transactions in ten seconds.
The first phase of the upgrade will include multiple changes to achieve scalability improvements. This includes autopeering and Improved tip selection (URTS), which will speed up the process by which transactions are connected.
The second phase will encompass many other features such as Bitcoin-like UTXO model, atomic transactions, reusable addresses and binary transactions. IOTA is expecting these changes to improve the network’s usability rather than scalability.
While the first phase of Chrysalis will start next week, the second phase is scheduled to be completed by October 2020. Chrysalis will also make IOTA “enterprise-ready” to attract larger corporations and governments to the platform.
