Shardeum, a Sharding Classical

  • Scalability: the chain can process more transactions than a single regular node (think: a consumer laptop) can verify.
  • Decentralization: the chain can run without any trust dependencies on a small group of large centralized actors. This is typically interpreted to mean that there should not be any trust (or even honest-majority assumption) of a set of nodes that you cannot join with just a consumer laptop.
  • Security: the chain can resist a large percentage of participating nodes trying to attack it (ideally 50%; anything above 25% is fine, 5% is definitely not fine).

Shardeum Sharding technique gets you all three

  • Scalable: it can process far more transactions than a single node
  • Decentralized: it can survive entirely on consumer laptops, with no dependency on “supernodes” whatsoever
  • Secure: an attacker can’t target a small part of the system with a small amount of resources; they can only try to dominate and attack the whole thing

Highlights on Shardeum Blockchain

  • Shardeum is EVM compatible and supports Solidity and Vyper, smart contract languages.
  • In each Shard there will be 128 nodes
  • In Each node of Shardeum process 1 transaction per second, 100k nodes will process 100k transactions per second.
  • Shardeum works on transaction level Consensus achieved using Proof of Quorum(PoQ) and Proof of Stake(PoS) Algorithm.
  • Shardeum operates on Dynamic State Sharding with linear TPS per node scaling type and supports archive nodes
  • Shardeum follows OCC(Open, Collaborative, and Community) principles as their guiding principles
