We Are Scaling Ethereum
Currently, blockchains do not scale. With Ethereum receiving over a million transactions per day, the network is desperate for a solution that will help sustain its massive growth and adoption.
We are building out the first sharding implementation for the Geth (go-ethereum) client, allowing the system to process transactions at over 10x - 100x of its current speed!
