Transaction Per Second(Live)
Aion handles over 4 times the transactions amount of Ethereum in its current iteration. Down the road, infinite transactions per second are possible with implementations of multiple spoke-chaines running in parallel.
The current release utilizes a custom equihash consensus algorithm dubbed "Equihash 2109", a modified equihash algorithm, which doubles the memory requirement but achieves identical block times. This results in a much securer network due to attacks being more memory intensive.

Aion features a lightweight transaction cost, costing approximately 75% less than transaction on Ethereum, appealing highly to dApp developers who value cheap transactions costs.
Aion remains Solidity compatible, ensuring easy onboarding for developers familiar with the Ethereum environment, but wish to utilize the security, scalability, and interoperability benefits provided by Aion. Down the road, Aion will feature its own scrpiting language.
Aion will be the fabric of communication between all blockchains, allowing for cross chain transactions seamlessly via Aion bridges. Already the first implementation
of cross chain transactions are taking place through the AION token bridge that is transferring ERC-20 assets to the Aion network.
