Project Hamilton Concluded That Even Weeks After The Legislators:
By pointing out that OpenCBDC has achieved a system throughout of 1.84 mn transactions every second, the Fed also suggested that development on the project had proceeded. That is most likely using the non-blockchain variant, which as of Feb was capable of 1.7 mn transactions every second. At that time, 170k transactions per second were being handled using the blockchain version.
