BitShares X Testnet

Can the TPS of DPOS be as high as NXT Transparent Forging?TPS = Transactions Per SecondNeither do I know whether NXT already implemented TF.

I'd say, depending on the connection/network of the delegates DPOS can be really fast .. in the testnet block are faster than 30 secs

Dan has said that dpos can scale to the size of visas 10,000 tps. I think nxt can handle 1,000 tps with tf, so yes dpos is better.

Obviously. But when you think about the fact that bitcoin network constitutes largest super computer in the world, the transition from using that level of computational resources for pointless work to using it for increased network capacity I'd say that dpos can scale well beyond visa in the future.

If DPOS gives a way to predict next miner with high probability then the answer is YES, I believe.

So except for between shuffles you always know the next delegate with certainty at least 30s in advance.

So except for between shuffles you always know the next delegate with certainty at least 30s in advance.So the order of delegates is not known in advance for the next 100 blocks and instead only for the next block? After every block the next delegates is selected randomly? Say there is only one delegate left from the 100 that has not yet been selected to find a block then he will be the one to find the next block?

This is an issue of trust once you get to 10K/sec because the bandwidth required is no longer able to be supported by a decentralized network. However, DPOS allows for centralization of delegates without losing the property of decentralized control.

So you always know on average 50 blocks in advance. Sometimes there is only 30 seconds and sometimes there is 3000 seconds depending upon where your delegate ended up in the shuffle.

So every delegate finds the same amount of blocks and gets the same reward as long as he is in the top 100, right?
