The Elrond project was founded in 2017 by brothers Beniamin and Lucian Mincu along with Lucian Todea with the aim of addressing blockchain scalability.
The project is focused on sharding as a solution and claims its smart contracts execution platform can process 15,000 transactions per second with a six-second latency and $0.001 cost.
Last week, the project announced a partnership with a United Kingdom-based fintech firm, Aurus, which would allow for gold, silver, and platinum tokens to be issued on the Elrond blockchain.
