Lightstreams has a transaction throughput 4x faster than EOS and supports application state changes that are finalised within 1.5 secs. Lightstreams’ Smart Vault is a compliant decentralised storage solution. Data is accessed on a need-to-know basis and can be erased forever. Control is always in the hands of the data owner, which means it is GDPR & CCPA compliant by default. Lightstreams allows application creators to bear the costs of running their applications instead of the users, enabling freemium usage models (try before you buy). Lightstreams’ governance model supports sustainable decentralisation by serving the people of the network first & foremost.
