For the first time in history, THORChain has sharded its Asgard Vaults.
After the latest node update, THORChain, for the first time in history just sharded its Asgard Vaults. There are now two.
This is a major milestone.
Sharding is a type of partitioning in which a large Database is divided or partitioned into smaller data, also known as shards. These shards are not only smaller, but also faster and hence easily manageable.
This is important because the system can grow nodes upto 100+, sharding the vaults as it goes with a high possibility of becoming exponentially faster.
THORChads are problem solvers and have demonstrated this many times over.
