Users who were part of the stress test also reported on Reddit saying that their results were good and didn’t face any crash. A user named Johansson posted the following post regarding his test result which was significantly good.
“My own results from measuring block count of local node every 10 sec (ignoring unchecked blocks). Please don’t take this too seriously. The first peak is probably because lots of unchecked blocks got solved and the second peak is because I got disconnected from my node and then came back up.
1 hour average 14.00-15.00 GMT: 77 TPS
1 min average 14.35-14.36 GMT: 988.78 TPS
10 sec average 14:35:36-14:35:46 5730.3 TPS”
Nano v15.0 is Now Marked 100% Complete on Github signifying the end of testing.
