The Internet Scale Blockchain
A highly scalable, fast and secure blockchain platform for distributed apps, enterprise use cases and the new internet economy.
Elrond aims to build a high-throughput blockchain that aspires to build the next internet-scale blockchain.
Recognizing that most scalability efforts by other projects are not sufficient in that the efforts are merely “kicking the can down the road”
Adaptive state sharding
Real-time splitting and merging of shards as the demand for network capacity changes. At any time, the Elrond blockchain will juggle between network sharding, transaction sharding and state sharding, making the network capacity highly malleable as user demand requires.
Secure Proof of Stake
New consensus approach called Secure Proof of Stake which is fast, and ensures long term security and distributed fairness, while eliminating the need for energy intensive PoW algorithms.
They have integrated a WASM VM engine, created a useful abstraction layer, support multiple smart contract languages, enabling testing and deployment in minutes.
