Sui Unveils New Standard for Blockchain Transaction Speed with Mysticeti Protocol

Renowned Layer 1 blockchain platform Sui has unveiled its Mysticeti protocol, which promises to redefine transaction speeds and consensus efficiency.

Sui blockchain, renowned for its unparalleled performance and infinite horizontal scaling, has successfully deployed Mysticeti on its Testnet, cutting consensus latency to 390 milliseconds.

Sui’s latest breakthrough, Mysticeti, dramatically reduces consensus time on its public Testnet by 80%, affirming its position as the fastest consensus layer in the industry. Developed from extensive research into Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT) consensus mechanisms, Mysticeti advances the capabilities of Sui’s previous consensus algorithms, Narwhal and Bullshark, launched a year ago. 

This advancement significantly enhances transaction speeds while reducing CPU requirements for validators, extending Sui’s low latency performance to all transaction types across its network.

Sui’s unique object-oriented architecture allows for differentiated transaction processing based on the transaction characteristics and involved objects. Peer-to-peer transfers, which involve only “owned objects,” bypass the need for consensus, following a fast-path execution.

However, transactions involving shared objects, such as those in marketplaces or collaborative games, traditionally required more processing time due to consensus needs. Mysticeti optimizes BFT consensus for these shared object transactions, reducing cross-validator communication and maximizing network bandwidth to maintain high throughput.

George Danezis, Co-founder and Chief Scientist of Mysten Labs, the originators of the Sui Network, commented on the development, saying; 

“Mysticeti represents a major leap forward, not just for Sui but for blockchain technology as a whole,….It reduces consensus latency to its lower limits while retaining high capacity and low computation costs. Mysticeti allows transaction processing faster than consensus within the same protocol, a feature unique to Sui. This is yet another instance of Sui pushing the boundaries of blockchain technology.”

The results on Testnet are groundbreaking, showing an 80% reduction in latency compared to previous protocols, with the network handling tens of thousands of transactions per second and latencies well below one second. These enhancements solidify Sui’s position as a leader in blockchain speed and scalability, offering a seamless experience for developers and users alike.

“Mysticeti’s launch is the result of a successful collaboration between research, engineering, and our validator community,” said Dmitri Perelman, Head of Engineering at Mysten Labs. “The new protocol, inspired by lessons from previous consensus mechanisms, has shown undeniable performance superiority. We are now preparing for its rollout to Mainnet, supported by our validators, within a matter of months.”

Industry leaders are already praising Mysticeti’s potential. Kevin Nelson, Co-Founder of Aftermath Finance, expressed enthusiasm for Mysticeti’s DAG-based structure surpassing state-of-the-art consensus throughput and latency performance. “We are excited for Mysticeti’s release on Mainnet and look forward to leveraging its design for a better end-to-end user experience.”
