This is not the reason blockchain is slow. It is slow because it demands proof-of-work which has to be slow and costly to prevent chain hijacking.
Blockchain is slow because it’s a distributed ledger. Even without any security process in place would it be slow because of every single aspect of its design. Not a few percent but several magnitudes slower than a centralized system geared for speed. That’s really databases 101.
