Welcome to the Layer 1 blockchain where the community runs the nodes, and linear scalability means exponential growth.

Solving the Trilemma

01

Scalability

Thanks to dynamic state sharding, consensus is reached at the transaction level. This means high speed because of parallel processing, and low fees.

02

Security

From our combined proof-of-stake and proof-of-quorum approach to consensus, to our auto rotation mechanism we focus on security every step of the way.

03

Decentralization

Shardeum is permissionless and built for the community to run nodes that increase TPS (Transactions Per Second), and participate regardless of their locations and backgrounds.
