This is a very shilly and is not entirely accurate, DYOR, but “consensus bandwidth“ is not the primary limiting factor in blockchain scalability, my understanding is that it pales in comparison to the synchronous VM state transition processing which is actually disk throughput bound; someone more enlightened please correct me if I’m mistaken. 

ADA is not the king of anything except uninformed skills boasting about its academic peer reviewed origins.
