What is Shardeum?

EVM-Compatible
Blockchain Platform

Shardeum is an EVM-compatible blockchain platform that leverages dynamic state sharding to achieve linear scalability. This innovative approach allows us to consistently offer low transaction fees and high throughput, effectively addressing key barriers to blockchain adoption.

Our commitment to the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) ensures compatibility with a wide range of existing applications and developer tools, facilitating an easy transition for projects and developers looking to benefit from Shardeum’s infrastructure.

Our Core Principles

 

 

 

 

Open

We believe that everyone in the world is a team member of Shardeum. We think of Shardeum as we do the open internet. It is not owned by anyone, it is owned by everyone and participation is open to everyone. In keeping with this principle, we have maintained open communications, ideations, decisions, documentations on pretty much everything we do.

Collaborative

Our approach is rooted in the belief that collective efforts lead to the most innovative solutions and advancements. By eliminating the concept of competition, we aim to foster an ecosystem where every participant, whether an individual developer, a start-up, or even a competing blockchain platform, is viewed as a potential collaborator.

Community Driven

We envision a blockchain where the community doesn’t just use the technology but actively shapes its evolution. We aim to enforce a governance model that reflects this belief, providing mechanisms for community members to propose, debate, and vote on changes to the platform. We’re committed to transparency and open communication, ensuring that the community is well-informed and engaged at every stage of Shardeum’s development.
