Adaptive State Sharding

The Elrond Network can leverage parallel processing thanks to Adaptive State Sharding technology, which combines three standardized sharding types (state, network, and transaction sharding) into a single balanced high-performance system. As a consequence, a safe blockchain with lightning-fast scalability and transaction speeds has been created. This facilitates shard merging and shard splitting, which allows the network to run more efficiently and hence improves overall network performance.
