Bitcoin Upgrade: GLV Endomorphism Tests Show 28% Faster Verification
A recent test by Casa co-founder Jameson Lopp revealed that enabling the GLV Endomorphism implementation for Bitcoin Core can make the network faster and more efficient by several notches.
Lopp tweeted Monday, “I ran 4 different syncs of Bitcoin Core to benchmark the real-world performance improvements offered by enabling GLV Endomorphism. The results were better than expected!”
He noted that the default synchronization speed during his tests increased by over 18%, while full verification of all historical signatures was 28% faster.
