What is Elrond?

Elrond (EGLD) is a unique blockchain protocol that has one main goal in mind — speed. According to Elrond documentation, the blockchain network is capable of executing 15,000 transactions per second (tps), which is a significant increase from Bitcoin’s 4.6 tps. This efficiency in smart-contract execution is intended to address the issue of scalability for decentralized applications built on top of the network. These speeds are achieved through a blockchain process called “sharding.” Sharding allows for the parallel processing of data using over 2,000 validator nodes. Elrond’s network works on a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm and initially operated on the Ethereum blockchain. However, it now boasts its own independent mainnet. EGLD is the native token of the Elrond network and is used for the management and security of the blockchain. Though originally minted as an ERC-20 (Ethereum-based) token, the tokens have now transitioned to the Elrond Mainnet. Holders of the coin can participate in securing the network either as a validator or delegator.
