Elrond is a complete rethinking of public blockchain infrastructure, specifically designed to be secure, efficient, scalable and interoperable. Elrond’s main contribution rests on two cornerstone building blocks: 1) a genuine State Sharding approach: effectively partitioning the chain state into multiple shards, handled in parallel by different participating validators; 2) secure Proof of Stake consensus mechanism: an improved variation of Proof of Stake (PoS) that ensures long term security and distributed fairness, while eliminating the need for energy intensive PoW algorithms. In Elrond the throughput increases linearly with the number of shards in the network. Sharding is a scaling technique inspired by traditional concepts of database optimization. Also known as horizontal partitioning, sharding divides the data into several pieces placed on different environments to be processed. The more validators and shards, the more transactions the network can process. Elrond is performing all network services with minimal energy and computational requirements.
