Radix, a public trustless decentralized ledger, plans to replay 10 years of Bitcoin transaction history with full signature and transaction validation in under an hour.

Radix describes itself as a new layer for the internet, where data, money, and other assets can be transacted quickly and easily.

The network only applies consensus to conflicted events allowing more efficiency and scalability.

Radix can run on almost any device since it is API driven allowing for an endless number of devices from TVs to smartphones to be able to connect to the network.

On June 12, at 9:30 AM Eastern Time, Radix replayed the entire 10 years of Bitcoin's transaction history on its ledger, with the full transaction and signature validation, on a network of over 1,000 nodes distributed evenly throughout the world.

Radix announced on Twitter they achieved 1,089,887 transactions per second during the test.

With the mission to "Give anyone, anywhere friction-free access to the digital economy," Radix emphasizes that it has built a protocol that can work for 7.5 billion people and 500 billion devices simultaneously.

The team has been running different tests on the network to simulate real-world conditions and on its latest one, it was able to reach more than 1 million transactions per second.

Different analysts, such as Willy Woo, are excited to see whether Radix will be able to run the entire Bitcoin ledger transaction history, which has more than 460 million addresses, within an hour.
