The South Korean-based firm Bloom Technology announced that they have created a new technology that is able to speed up transactions on the blockchain. On Dec. 3, United Press International reported that Bloom Technology's CEO, Lee Sang-yoon, said that the company's Lotus Chain technology has been able to reduce blockchain transaction processing times to fractions of a second.
One single blockchain transaction takes less than 0.23 secondsThe company reportedly conducted a public test with 635 participating nodes to reveal the transaction speed of the Lotus Chain technology. The results showed that a single blockchain transaction took between 0.13-0.23 seconds. Lee further hinted at the importance of faster blockchain transactions by pointing out that transactions at present often take "More than 10 minutes for cryptocurrencies and even longer than an hour for Bitcoin." South Korea to provide a legal basis for cryptoIn November, South Korea's National Assembly national policy committee passed a bill designed to provide a legal basis for crypto in the country and bring regulatory clarity and transparency to crypto markets in South Korea.
In early 2018, South Korean regulators banned anonymous trading on crypto exchanges in line with anti-money laundering and identification efforts in the country.
