MultiversX – Mass adoption, security, sharding, EGLD, xDay, and more | Fundamentals ep.73

Article hero image

In this episode we’re joined by Benjamin Mincu, the Founder and CEO of MultiversX – a Layer 1 blockchain, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, MultiversX introduces two key innovations: a novel adaptive state sharding mechanism, and a secure proof of stake algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism.

Listen to the episode

We discuss how MultiversX works, and what sets it apart from other blockchains on the market. We speak about the innovations behind achieving high transaction throughput, ensuring safety via an onchain 2FA mechanism, the effects of having tokens embedded into the protocol, and how the xPortal wallet and super app fit into the grande vision for MultiversX.

We then break down MultiversX’s current app, developer, and user landscapes - and speak about the upcoming xDay conference and hackathon, and how they aim to bridge the gap between builders and decision makers.

Finally, we speak about MultiversX’s economic model, the EGLD token, what the best metrics are to track the adoption of a blockchain network, and what economic sustainability means.

Tune in for a great discussion about MultiversX, and tackling the problems that are critical for mass adoption.
