Ever since their inception, two of the oldest and biggest blockchains, Bitcoin and Ethereum, have struggled with sluggish processing speeds and high transaction fees. Developers have recognised these issues and have produced some nifty innovations to address them. The result? New-age blockchains with blisteringly fast transaction speeds and nominal transaction fees. Therefore, if you are thinking about dipping your toes into crypto waters, it’s worth considering these smart chains, in addition to their mainstream counterparts.
