Whiteblock announced the world’s first scalable test system for blockchain and enterprise DLT developers, Blockchain Testing-as-a-Service (BTaaS) on Thursday.

With thousands of users and over 12 years of experience in network testing and evaluation, Whiteblock Inc. brings with it substantial management experience in building reliable products. As said by Neal Roche, CEO of Whiteblock, “Testing at scale is a bottleneck for many blockchain development teams who depend on test nets run by a small number of volunteers or a homogenous network. Having a partner who can leverage and provide large-scale test networks allows development teams at companies of all sizes to quickly emulate real-world conditions and run deterministic repeatable tests prior to going live.”

By measuring performance benchmarks like transactions per second and consensus over a variety of networks, validating the performance of a blockchain system through testing multiple systems and conditions including bandwidth up to 100 Gbps and up to 1000 nodes, Whiteblock's BTaaS delivers an accurate and detailed report for all testing results. This, in turn, allows developers to automate transactions, test fault tolerance, dynamically add or remove nodes, and more.

According to Phillip Odom, CEO of TransactIQ, "As a premier provider of continuous testing for cloud, IoT, and blockchain, TransactIQ has understood the challenge that exists for blockchain developers to validate the scalability of applications in the enterprise. We consider it an honor to work with Whiteblock to deliver this innovative solution to market.”

"Whiteblock provides real-world network conditions, test cases, analysis and test reports for enterprises and investors running proof of concept to validate performance claims of blockchain systems, and who require independent, third-party due diligence," - Zak Cole, CTO of Whiteblock.
