The blockchain has had a greater interest in research and the Technical Industry regarding security testing in recent years. A parallel entry security testing approach uses time and security for security enhancement testing. The first entry tests for a normal wallet with basic security, while the other one uses an Ethereum wallet with a Merkel hash tree and Smart Contract. This approach is tested for 100 users and more than 20,000 transactions which shows that Ethereum transactions are faster and more secure using Merkle Hash Tree, while Normal transactions are slower and less secure. Only secure transactions are recorded in the database others are rejected. Thus, the digital wallet security is enhanced using Merkel Hash Tree with an average running time of 1.39.
