Here’s one of the first screenshots of a working Graphene posted by bytemaster on the forums
The full message:
Today we were pushing over 500 transactions per second through a test network with 4 nodes with ease. The bottleneck right now is how fast an individual wallet can produce transactions and not how fast the network can process transactions. The network code is the same as under BTS and had never been pushed to these kinds of limits, so today we fixed a few things.
We have a working snapshot of BTS imported into Graphene. All of the tests are currently passing.
The GUI is what we are waiting on now and it is coming along very well, but as you can see still needs quite a bit of work. Everything is far more fluid and smooth in the new GUI the feel is greatly improved.
