What is Elrond?

Elrond defines itself as “a highly scalable, fast and secure blockchain platform for distributed apps, enterprise use cases and the new internet economy” (Elrond.com). In other words, Elrond is a blockchain protocol that aims to provide extremely fast transaction speeds by using sharding. This includes fintech, DeFi, and the Internet of Things. The unique thing about Elrond and its main selling point is its high scalability. Elrond says that it is the “first blockchain network in which state, network and transaction sharding have all been implemented. According to its economics paper, it seeks to build up its ecosystem and establish EGLD as a store-of-value asset.” (Coinmarketcap).

Elrond’s native token, eGold, also known as EGLD, is used for paying network fees, staking, and rewarding validators. The native token went live in July of 2020, opening a new phase of growth for the Elrond community. Similar to gold, EGLD is designed to optimize parameters that offer themselves to create a strong store of value. However, EGLD was built to include mechanics and functionality that exceed those of gold. This new economics model was defined to position EGLD as Elrond’s core network token, an essential component to Elrond’s foundation and internal usage.

EGLD was also created and designed for simplicity and mass adoption. In order to achieve their goal of global adoption, Elrond supports developers building on the platform, allowing them to earn 30% of the smart contract fees as royalties.
