Other Elrond developments
The popular Staking-as-a-Service provider has recently partnered several blockchain-related firms in a bid to enable the easy deployment and hosting of its nodes.
According to Lucian Mincu, Elrond CIO, “We’re a technology-focused project, but we have gotten where we are thanks to our propensity for thinking in clear business terms about everything that we do.”
Notably, to achieve its current form, Elrond had to introduce two key innovations. (a) a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and (b) a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism.
Currently, according to reports Elrond can process over 10,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 5-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
