Ava Labs Unveils Vryx Upgrade, Aiming to Propel Avalanche Blockchain to 100,000 Transactions Per Second (TPS)

Ava Labs is generating buzz with its latest update for the Avalanche (AVAX) blockchain, named Vryx, which boasts the capability to handle an impressive 100,000 transactions per second (TPS). Revealed on January 26, the Vryx upgrade aims to enhance the overall efficiency and speed of the blockchain.

This development tackles a persistent challenge in blockchain technology—scaling networks to accommodate larger transactions without compromising security or decentralization. Ava Labs plans to implement this groundbreaking technology on the HyperSDK testnet, a toolkit designed for constructing high-performance blockchains, with the rollout scheduled for the second quarter of 2024.

The cornerstone of this upgrade lies in a sophisticated system called Decoupled State Machine Replication (DSMR). Unlike traditional transactions tightly linked to their verification process, DSMR separates them. In the typical State Machine Replication (SMR) process, blockchain transactions undergo step-by-step verification and approval. Vryx’s DSMR disrupts this by allowing transactions to be distributed and ordered before undergoing verification, significantly boosting transaction speed and enabling more simultaneous transactions.

However, this innovative approach introduces a potential downside—invalid transactions, those not meant to be processed due to a lack of fees, could spread across the network, potentially causing congestion with unnecessary data. Vryx addresses this concern by ensuring that only fee-paying transactions circulate, preserving resources and maintaining system efficiency.

In a related development, Ava Labs recently undertook strategic layoffs to optimize resource allocation. Approximately 40 employees, primarily from the marketing division, were affected. Ava Labs CEO Emin Gün Sirer clarified that the decision was influenced by current market conditions and aimed at accelerating growth for both the company and the Avalanche ecosystem. Despite the workforce reduction, Gün Sirer reassured stakeholders of Ava Labs’ robust financial standing.
