Mission & Key Concepts

Shardeum is a sharded EVM-based L1 smart contract platform with a mission to enable decentralization for everyone. Currently, decentralized applications are limited by rising gas fees and long transaction queues as a result of blockchains that can’t scale. Our team envisions a world where decentralized applications are adopted globally, enabling a more equitable society with less power put in the hands of a few centralized entities.

Current challenges

To accelerate the adoption of dApps Shardeum is building the most advanced iteration of a state sharded smart contract platform. Dynamic state sharding enables Shardeum to increase TPS with each node added to the network. We are obsessed with making the vision for a decentralized future a reality and seek individuals who share the same passion. The Shardeum Foundation is a small but highly experienced team distributed globally who have worked with NASA, Yahoo, Raytheon, Zynga, Microsoft, Ethereum Foundation, PayPal, etc.

Future directions

The initial focus for Shardeum is to build the most optimal layer one solution with sustainable low gas fees while providing the same developer and user interface as Ethereum. After launch of the mainnet the goal of Shardeum will be to grow the ecosystem as quickly as possible. Though the ecosystem evolves at such a rapid pace that it is impossible to predict what the future holds, we expect the following 4 broad areas for decentralized applications on Shardeum, each of these closely dependent and working in sync with one another:

  • Infrastructure
  • Community (Peer to Peer)
  • Enterprises
  • Academia
