This is not going to be possible without significant concurrency. That
is, the overhead of CURVE is going to limit you to perhaps 100K
message/second (it depends a lot on the size of messages and CPU
speed) per node. You can easily test this with your sample data.

We're also not using the fastest possible crypto library, so you may
get some improvement by using NaCl instead of libsodium, for instance.
