Battle of Nodes
1 October - 20 November 2019

In order to make Elrond a sustainable layer that will stand tall in the face of any challenge, we are building antifragility into its core. Right from the first testnet phase we invite everyone to discover what it means to run a node, get rewards, and put the network through a trial by fire so it will emerge stronger. The Battle of Nodes will feature a Testnet-as-a-Battleground environment where test node operators will be rewarded for supporting the network and even more so for trying to break it.

World meets Elrond tour
8 September - 15 November 2019

Meetups and events around the world.

Introducing the Elrond
team and technology

Elrond is a complete rethinking of public blockchain infrastructure, specifically designed to be secure, efficient, scalable and interoperable. Elrond’s main contribution rests on two cornerstone building blocks: 1) A genuine Adaptive State Sharding approach: effectively partitioning the chain state into multiple shards, handled in parallel by different participating validators; 2) Secure Proof of Stake consensus mechanism: an improved variation of Proof of Stake (PoS) that ensures long term security and distributed fairness, while eliminating the need for energy intensive PoW algorithms.

Testnet “Zero to One” live launch event

We are excited to announce that Elrond has launched the “Zero to One” testnet. This iteration is the most advanced validation of State sharding & PoS to date. The current version consists of static state sharding, secure proof of stake consensus, Schnorr signature for transactions, BLS signatures for random seed generation, and modified BLS multisig for blocksigning.

Elrond Keynote

Introductory presentation to Elrond from Zurich - Blockchain preAccelerator.

Elrond is a complete rethinking of public blockchain architecture, solving scalability through adaptive state sharding , efficiency through secure proof of stake , and will enable EVM compliance by design. Elrond attempts to bring a 1000x improvement compared to current status quo, aiming for 10,000 TPS, low latency, and minimal fee.
