The foundation for global-scale decentralized applications.
Shardus is building distributed ledger software to remedy the problems of traditional blockchains -- scalability, decentralization and efficiency. The technology being developed will use compute and state sharding to accommodate billions of daily active users, allowing for global-scale decentralized applications. The first application built with this technology will be a payment network and coin called Liberdus.
