Explore the Future of Web3: Shardeum's Whitepaper Released!

Shardeum July’23 Updates

Hello Shardeum Family!

Hope you had an amazing month of July ✨

The beginning of Q3’23 was full of events, partnerships, and incredible announcements for Shardeum.

Here’s how the month of July looked for us  ⤵️

Diving deeper into the details????????

Sphinx Betanet & Sphinx Dapp

Shardeum Sphinx network was launched on February 2nd, 2023 by our co-founders Nischal Shetty and Omar Syed, where the public demo of Sphinx was viewed by over 2.5K people live!

Our latest Betanet metrics are:

  • 35k+ Max validators
  • 230k+ Smart Contracts
  • 800k+ Accounts
  • 7.4 M + Transactions
  • 180 TPS max capacity reached so far (Not network limit)

We launched a new parallel testnet for developers and the community, called the Sphinx Dapp in addition to the existing Sphinx Testnet for validators.

Dapps can use the support of our strong community to stress test their products and start acquiring users. The Shardeum tech team is simultaneously working towards stabilizing the Sphinx Validator testnet so the community can continue running nodes seamlessly.

Sphinx Dapp Metrics ????

Sphinx Dapp 1.5.3 version was released recently and the icing on the cake is we’ve added support for a majority of Ethereum-compatible RPC methods including WSS eth_subscribe, allowing Dapp builders to subscribe to real-time events on the Shardeum ecosystem to build more responsive and interactive Dapps among other benefits.

Shardeum Strategic Round

Shardeum has successfully raised an oversubscribed round of $5.4MM at a valuation of $248.9MM ($1 per SHM). With this round, our cap table has become more diversified and we are so grateful to have our community’s support in making decentralization accessible to all.

This strategic raise in the midst of a bear market demonstrates confidence in Shardeum as a highly-scalable layer-1 prioritizing decentralization and security.

The announcement was covered by some esteemed media platforms all across the world like The Block, Coindesk TV, Moneycontrol, Yourstory media, Foresight News, Hindu Business Line(a top business publication in India), and more!
