About the Technology Blockchain’s transaction speed and processing capacity are determined by the speed of consensus decision-making between the nodes that make up the blockchain. The two important factors behind this are the speed of the network between the nodes, and the time required for new blocks within a node to be created and validated. The new service enables higher transaction speed and processing capacity by adopting the following system structure: (1) Achieving high-speed communication between nodes by positioning all nodes responsible for consensus decision-making on the Akamai Intelligent Platform (2) Developing a unique design permitting high-speed and high-capacity creation and verification of new blocks within nodes.” -> Ripple products or something build on top of it?
