Whiteblock Inc., a blockchain testing company, has announced completion of a performance analysis report conducted for its latest client, Ubiq Technologies. Ubiq collaborated with Whiteblock’s Blockchain Testing as a Service (BTaaS) team to benchmark performance and identify the correlation between block gas limits and transactional throughput for the Ubiq blockchain platform.
