Measuring the Dwolla network’s transaction speed

I love Dwolla hackathons. I was pretty bummed out to miss the last one but I got to hang around this time.

This was one of my favorites. It’s monitor that Jared built for the Dwolla API that shows round-trip transaction time, among other things.

This shows round-trip transaction time at just under 1 second. It’s a bit amazing when you think about comparing < 1 second to transaction times measured in days.
