Bottleneck of large volume block! ChainLinkGod comments: BSC, Polygon are increasingly unreliable

BSC, Polygon and Ethereum

KOL -- ChainLinkGod, a well-known member of the

Chainlink community, took to Twitter today to compare BSC, Polygon and Ethereum. It points out that Polygon's transaction processing speed is more than 10 times faster than Ethereum's, while also being 10 times cheaper. BSC is 20 times faster and 20 times cheaper than Ethereum." However, according to ChainLinkGod, Polygon and BSC are better than Ethereum because of no technological breakthrough or innovation. It's just that their block's Gas limit is larger and blocks are produced faster than Ethereum's (the higher the Gas limit, the larger the block is and the more transactions it can hold)." 1. Ethereum: Block Gas cap 12.5M every 12.5 seconds (1Mgas/ SEC)

2.Polygon: Block Gas upper limit 20M block Gas output every 2 seconds (10Mgas/ SEC)

ChainLinkGod believes that this practice does not really improve scalability, but only increases the burden on the network and the need for node hardware. Although Polygon and BSC will have better performance than Ethereum initially, there will be a bottleneck.

"ChainLinkGod "points out that the usage of Ethereum block space has been close to 100% for the past year, while BSC usage has been declining recently. In addition to the recent decrease in transaction volume, The main reason is that the network tripled the block cap. Polygon has also been approaching 100% recently, which could force Polygon to follow BSC's lead and raise the Gas ceiling." While raising the Gas ceiling can improve blockchain performance, it is not without drawbacks. Increasing the Gas ceiling will result in increased hardware and bandwidth requirements for network nodes. On top of that, raising the Gas cap is not a long-term solution. Once volumes increase again, block utilization will again approach 100%, and the decision to raise the Gas cap will come up again." On the other hand, the combination of large blocks and fast block output results in an increase in block output, more frequent temporary forks, and the possibility that nodes are out of sync with the network, which is why BSC and Polygon networks are sometimes unstable. Finally, ChainLinkGod concludes that Polygon and BSC networks have recently become less reliable compared to Ethereum due to higher hardware and bandwidth requirements. Simply tuning the parameters is a contingency measure, the real long-term reliable scale-up is the second-tier solution (off-chain computing).
