Apollo’s first shard is fast approaching. It will take place at block 2,250,000.
Apollonauts can participate by forging on their desktops. If you use the web wallet, download the latest desktop wallet, and start forging.
Sharding solves blockchain bloat which is the technical problem of how to permanently store trillions or more of blocks on-chain, as well as how to transmit and/or download the chain within a reasonable timeframe.
It’s a revolutionary solution to making blockchain sustainable.
Sergey Rokhvarg, chief technology officer, says:
Sharding allows you to download the blockchain much faster, and it reduces the cycle-time of operations as well as lowers the needed disk space. Apollo sharding is a trailblazing innovation that is not implemented in most cryptocurrencies. Our developers anticipate potential issues in order to prevent them.
Steve McCullah, director of business development, says:
With the release of sharding, APL becomes the world’s ultimate currency — the fastest and most feature-rich crypto, as well as, the most sustainable blockchain available. Through sharding and adaptive forging, APL is among the first cryptocurrencies to solve blockchain’s vital challenge of sustainability.
