Shardeum Sphinx 1.3

Shardeum Sphinx was launched on 2nd Feb’23 by our co-founders Nischal Shetty and Omar Syed, where the Public Demo of Sphinx was watched by over 2500 people live!

Sphinx is getting stable and better every week and we recently launched Sphinx 1.3, introducing support for variable gas fees (in testing), making staking transactions more efficient, improvement to validator→archiver protocol, several bug fixes and improvements, making it easier for the community to run nodes on Shardeum.

Shardeum has acquired over 800,000 testnet users and crossed over 1MM transactions on the network.
