Smart contracts platform Symbiont has announced the release of its software development kit for Assembly, the permissioned distributed ledger component of Symbiont’s smart contracts system. The high performance Byzantine fault-tolerant distributed ledger focuses on security and is able to process a sustained 80,000 transactions per second in a regional multi-node network. This result corresponds to the maximum performance measured in academic studies of the consensus protocol used by Assembly.
Adam Krellenstein, Symbiont’s co-founder and CTO, commented: “Decentralized systems no longer have to be slow. With Assembly, we’ve proven that. We’ve proven that we can build a fast, secure and powerful distributed ledger capable of meeting the high demands of institutional finance. Assembly is now available to developers struggling to achieve an institutional-quality distributed ledger, and we welcome inquiries from those wishing to build blockchain applications on it.”
