I would like to thank anyone who could shed some light on this area
1)I believe that with 1 minute vs. 10 minute blocks transactions would occur faster than bitcoin, is this true?
2)How much of an effect does the use of trees have on processing time?
3)Any estimates on time for a confirmed transaction? (for currency (ether)?, and for a contract?)
4)Does transaction speed slow down with increased block chain size?
5)Will increases in internet speed, bandwidth as well as CPU speed make transactions noticeably faster?
