Sharding Protocol To Launch In April

The wait is nearly over for a tech breakthrough that will elevate the Apollo project by making it among the first crypto ventures to have operational sharding protocol running on its network.

It will launch on April 1 and will solve long-term scaling issues with blockchain, specifically the problem of bloat. (See important update on sharding release.)

Over time, there will be billions of blocks (or more) on-chain. Although each block adds tiny amount of data, the accumulated info will eventually grow to huge sizes.

The Apollo developer team is creating solutions with long-term challenges in mind, and sharding will differentiate the foundation from other crypto ventures.

Here are a few questions:

  • If nothing is ever deleted on a chain and blocks grow to trillions, can a network continue to function?

Sharding splits the blockchain into segments, which has positive effects on volume of transactions, download speed, blockchain speed, and overall stability of ecosystem. It processes a transaction in different parts. Therefore, transactions are confirmed by nodes much faster when compared to conventional processes.
