? Secure Sharding: Harmony's sharding process is provably secure thanks to the distributed randomness generation (DRG) process which is unpredictable, unbiaseable, verifiable and scalable.
- commenced scaling of database models (including new SQL and non-SQL database structures), sharding and decoupling projects to further scale WiseCloud infrastructure, increasing redundancy and expanding performance capacity.
It has been built with adaptive state sharding and is based on the Secure-Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism.
FESS is the first project in the crypto space introducing Proof-of-Proof mechanism based on the familiar Proof of Work (PoW) consensus, combining with artificial intelligence and basic features of sharding.

In 2019, two major innovations are expected in the Ethereum architecture: Proof of Stake and Sharding.
These hard-forked creations are tackling the problem of transaction size and scalability in a variety of ways: by trimming the data in each transaction; by using software called SegWit to compress transactions; by conducting verification through a separate channel; by employing the Lightning P2P Network that sits on top of the Bitcoin blockchain and permits micro transfers between users; and by using a technique called sharding that enlarges throughput by partitioning the network with nodes in each of the shards that are created processing a subset of the transactions.
To overcome the shortcomings of the existing blockchain technology, Locus Chain has developed independent 'Dynamic State Sharding' technology and an Account-Wise Transaction Chain (AWTC) structure that can quickly approve transactions without any interruption even if the number of transactions increases.
The blockchain protocol also provides scalability through dynamic state sharding technology, resolving issues associated with growing data size; supports Smart Contracts, which can be executed even in harshest network environments that other blockchain protocols cannot manage; and is protected by a secure cryptography system that shields the platform from cyber-attacks.
