Blockchain technology is one among the foremost popular technologies in recent years, it's already changed people’s lifestyles in some areas thanks to its great influence on many businesses or industries, and what it can do will still cause an impact in many places. Blockchain technologies bring us more reliable and convenient services, however, the safety issues and challenges behind this technology are additionally a crucial topic that we'd like to concern about. One of the main drawbacks of blockchain with current implementations is speed of the network and efficiency. We compare blockchain with hashgraph and survey the benefits of hashgraph over blockchain.
