Transaction throughput is the rate at which valid transactions are committed by a blockchain in a defined time period. The throughput of a given blockchain is defined by the number of transactions per second (tps). Some of the notable blockchains and their throughput are: Bitcoin can support 7 tps, Ethereum can support 14 tps, and Avalanche® can support 4500+ tps.
