What is Elrond?

Co-Founded in 2017 by the Mincu brothers, Beniamin and Lucian, alongside Lucian Todea, Elrond acts as a blockchain network trying to solve the blockchain trilemma. Using a new sharding technique known as the Adaptive state sharding, it can improve its entire transaction per second. This is why it can perform 260,000 transactions in one second. Furthermore, unlike most protocols in its category, Elrond also uses a different consensus mechanism called the Secured Proof of stake (SPoS).

The Elrond token

On a year-to-date basis, Elrond has increased from $9 to over $220. With a market capitalization of $7.6 billion, it is the 36th most significant token globally. Thirty-two million tokens will ever be minted, and two-third of it is already in circulation. 55% of this 21 million (two-third) are locked in staking rewards and will be released over the next ten years. Elrond's token is called eGLD, and it can be used for staking and rewarding validators. It is also used as gas for the protocol, and on some specialized wallets like the Maiar wallet, eGLD can be borrowed and lent.

Should you buy Elrond?

Elrond has competed favorably with many tokens tagged "ethereum killers," although it has not been able to go head-to-head with Ethereum itself (has anyone been able to?). If there is any reason you might consider buying Elrond, it would be for their many partnerships in the crypto ecosystem. To improve collateralization, Elrond partnered with Ardana. Elrond partnered with Panther protocol to add interoperable privacy; in a bid to be a settlement layer on apps, a symbiotic partnership was made with Cudos. There is strength in numbers, and Elrond's partnership might be advantageous in the coming years. Elrond is looking to build a stable coin called the Elrond standard digital token (ESDT), but the eGLD will remain the platform's utility token.
