How are scalability efforts going?

Scalability is the most-discussed issue facing blockchains at this moment. On Cointelegraph, Stephen O’Neal discusses the state of scalability of 11 public and semi-public (Ripple, Stellar) blockchain platforms.

Where possible, the article compares the transaction speeds claimed by developers or people related to the projects and the independently estimated ones. The latter are at the moment only available for 7 out of the platforms surveyed. The most glaring difference between the claimed and estimated speeds is exhibited by EOS and IOTA. The public blockchain platforms that are currently estimated to be able to process the most transactions per second are Bitcoin Cash (around 60) and EOS (around 50).

The caveat that needs to be made with regard to this article, however, is that the independent estimates in question were not made following the same methodology.
