- In a tweet, it showed that Avalanche recorded a sub-second finality of 0.1449 seconds.
- The Twitter community has divided opinions on this matter — some say it’s even unreal.
- However, Avalanche had recorded a sub-second finality before, which proves that it is true.
Avalanche’s sub-second transaction finality is one of its numerous strengths. The platform, aside from its low-cost and eco-friendly nature, is also famous for its ‘blazingly fast’ transactions.
To prove this, F∀wkes, with the handle name @rminchv, tweeted something that showcased the fast transactions which Avalanche is proud of. The network even retweeted this video tweet last January 2021.
A fren asked me to record a video for him, thought it would make a cute tweet. $AVAX transactions time to finality is averaging a blink on a network with 744 full block producing validator nodes on L1. Pretty sure we are about to change the industry here. pic.twitter.com/IxpyO1oUoJ

More so, the Twitter user also added that “$AVAX transactions time to finality is averaging a blink on a network with 744 full block producing validator nodes on L1.”
Following this, another Twitter user, Omer, with the handle name @demirelo, also tweeted something about Avalanche’s sub-second finality. This tweet, moreover, proves once again that Avalanche’s ‘fast transaction’ is more than just a theory.
Avalanche is fast. Not because it uses massive hardware, not because it centralizes processing, but because it uses a superior algorithm for achieving consensus. https://t.co/MMvhhKmqM2

However, not everyone believes such claims. The Twitter community debated on this matter. Joshua Tobkin — also a Twitter user — claimed that the ‘sub-second finality’ wasn’t correct. The reason is, “light itself takes about 0.1337 seconds to travel around the earth.” The user then added that he thinks it’s “physically impossible to achieve non-fork-able finality near the speed of light around the earth.”
Of course, Avalanche supporters backed the platform’s claims and provided facts regarding this. Moj Deko — another Twitter user — asserted that it was a ‘big deal’. The Twitter user said that processing all payment activities in the whole world has always been “a major pain point since BTC came out.” For him, “1sec finality + subnets were the last missing pieces of the puzzle, big things will come next.”
Indeed, Avalanche shows promising market conditions these days.
