Have we set the blockchain speed record?

Ripple:

Right now, consensus consistently takes about 2 seconds (which is the minimum). In simulations, the consensus process increases with the log of the number of trusted validators. 100 validators brings it to about 3 seconds. 1,000 validators increases it to about 4 seconds. 10,000 increases it to about 5 seconds.

Based upon the latency we see in our network right now we *could* tune up the block production rate to handle 101 validators at 2 seconds.   This would give complete confirmation in less than 102 seconds (51% of delegates signing).   

I don't think there is much advantage to a 2 second vs 15 second block... but I am fairly certain that DPOS has proven it could scale better than Ripple.

Here are some suggestions offered by alt. You may have Hackfisher translated for you.

Daniel, please reconsider your thread titles. 

To answer your question: No, you haven't set any records - you are wondering out loud if you could do that, but you have not even attempted it.   

Please reconsider your thread titles, they lead to elevated expectations that are rarely met.

Even if we hit those numbers we still have only 1 validator in 2 seconds and 51% validation in 101 seconds... so we aren't even close to same speed for "full" validation, just possibly faster "good enough" validation
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

also if you actually follow the ledger it seems to be much slower than the times you cited. it looks to be on average about 10 seconds.

not sure if this is an accurate representation:

Good to notice... looks like they upped the minimum time to closure.
