EVM based layer 1 networkSince you just need to deploy a smart contract written in developer-friendly languages like Solidity & Vyper on Shardeum, it is tailor-made for both new & existing developers to build dapps within minutes.
Dynamic state shardingNodes on Shardeum are assigned dynamic address ranges across multiple shards. Since the consensus takes place at the transaction level, the network will retain parallel and atomic processing of transactions resulting in linear scalability.
Linear scalability & low gas foreverThrough dynamic state sharding, Shardeum will scale linearly. Every node that joins the Shardeum network immediately increases the transactions per second (TPS) capacity, thus ensuring low transaction fees even as the usage grows.
Anyone can operate a nodeSince historical data on Shardeum will be offloaded to archive nodes on top of its linear scalability, hardware requirements to run a node on the network will be low. With the help of GUI, even non-technical users can run a node easily.
Autoscaling & high fairnessShardeum will autoscale dynamically based on demand in the network keeping its operational cost low to retain low gas fees. The network will further process transactions on FCFS basis to ensure high fairness eliminating MEV.
Solid securityA leaderless Proof-of-Quorum (PoQ) consensus algorithm, Proof-of-Stake (PoS) with slashing, standby nodes, node rotation and permissionless participation - all contributes to boost the security of the network.
