NXS ‘s Director of Business Development; Brian Vena: The Nexus dev…

NXS ‘s Director of Business Development; Brian Vena: The Nexus dev team has been testing a new lattice-based cryptographic algorithm called Falcon, which is currently a second-round candidate of the coveted NIST competition. Falcon serves as a replacement for the ECDSA algorithm currently used by Nexus to generate public/private key pairs.

This change will increase capacity for verifying pre-state transactions on any given node from 4k-5k per second up to 150k-200k per second, whilst maintaining post-quantum security. The algorithm is currently being trialled on our public testnet. http://bit.ly/NexusTestNet
