Afternoon everyone. Whenever I transact on Zilliqa the transactions follow this dynamic:
1) compose the transaction and click send
2) there is a delay of up to 2 minutes during which the transaction is not visible on ViewBlock
3) after that delay, the transaction appears on ViewBlock and almost instantaneously is confirmed.
In summary: the confirmations are instant, but it takes a very long time to appear on the blockchain.
The delay on being committed to the blockchain makes the transaction appear just as slow (or sometimes even slower) than bitcoin or ethereum. So from an individual user perspective the speed of zilliqa isn't apparent.
My questions are: What causes that delay on the chain? Is this a deliberate/architectural pause or a side-effect of something else? Can this delay be reduced to improve the "apparent" speed of the chain?
