Ano ang Elrond? (EGLD)

Ang Beginner's Guide

Elrond is a software that seeks to incentivize a distributed network of computers to run a smart contract platform that aims to prioritize scalability and low transaction fees.

In this way, Elrond is designed to compete against major blockchains, such as Ethereum and Zilliqa, aiming to grow an ecosystem of decentralized applications and cryptocurrencies

To do so, Elrond employs two unique features:

  • Adaptive State Sharding – The process of splitting the Elrond infrastructure to support more transactions and programs
  • Secure Proof-of-Stake (SPoS) – The consensus mechanism devised to sync separate network components to a common ledger

Further, developers will use the Elrond Integrated Development Environment to write and launch customizable programs that replicate goods and services on its platform. 

Elrond is powered by its native cryptocurrency, EGLD coin, which is used to interact with applications, send transactions, and incentivize actors supporting the network.

Sino ang Lumikha ng Elrond EGLD coin?

Elrond was founded by Lucian Todea, Beniamin and Lucian Mincu in 2017 and is supported by Elrond Network, a company based in Malta dedicated to expanding the project.

In June 2019, the project conducted a private investment round raising $1.9 million from several angel investors. That same month, Elrond held an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) that raised $3.25 million in exchange for 25% of its total token supply.

At the time, Elrond distributed its cryptocurrency as ERD coin, but, after the project launched its mainnet in July 2020, Elond changed its cryptocurrency to EGLD coin. The project then held a transitory event that enabled its investors to swap ERD for Elrond’s new EGLD cryptocurrency.

Paano gumagana ang Elrond?

The Elrond network offers many features common to other cryptocurrency networks, like smart contracts, transaction settlement, and token issuance.

Developers can use programming languages (such as Rust, C and C++) to run custom programming logic (smart contracts) and design new programs (decentralized applications) to offer a variety of products and services.

Unique to Elrond is its design variations of sharding and proof-of-stake, helping process roughly 12,500 transactions per second.


Sharding works by splitting the network into pieces, or shards, for nodes to only process a fraction of the network’s transactions. This practice is also implemented in competing other blockchains such as Zilliqa and Polkadot.

Elrond’s transaction processing mechanism is called ‘Adaptive State Sharding,’ where nodes are split into subsets to verify transactions. Once the transactions are processed, the shards broadcast them to the metachain (Elrond’s central blockchain) where they will be settled.

Of note, every 24 hours, one-third of the nodes validating transactions in each shard are reshuffled to a new shard, with the intent of preventing collusion among validators in each shard.

Secure Proof of Stake (SPoS)

Central to Elrond is the Secure Proof of Stake (SPoS), a Proof of Stake governance mechanism that keeps the distributed network of computers running its blockchain in sync.

Similar to traditional PoS, SPoS is used by computers running the Elrond software to secure the network, validate transactions, and distribute newly minted EGLD coins.

However, since Elrond’s network consists of shards rather than a single chain, its SPoS consensus mechanism is used to select validating nodes to produce blocks within a shard rather than the entire network. 

To achieve final settlement, validators must check the work of block producers and sync with other shards within the network. Once a batch of transactions is successfully appended to the Elrond blockchain, these contributors are rewarded with EGLD tokens.

Bakit may halaga ang EGLD?

Ang Elrond cryptocurrency, EGLD, ay may mahalagang papel sa pagpapanatili ng network nito at maaaring magamit para sa pagpapadala, pag-reward sa mga network contributor, at pagpapatakbo ng smart contracts.

Sa pamamagitan ng pagmamay-ari at pagstake ng EGLD, nakakakuha ang mga user ng kakayahang bumoto sa mga network upgrade at nabibigyan ng reward sa newly minted EGL, na proporsyonal sa halagang na-i-stake.

Nagbibigay si Elrond ng 30% ng mga bayarin sa transaksyon sa mga author ng mga smart contract sa tinatawag nilang “smart contract royalties.” Ang Elrond ay kumukuha din ng 10% ng lahat ng mga transaction fee upang i-reward ang mga community participant sa mga special event, mga bounty project, at  network development.

Tulad ng maraming mga cryptocurrency, ang supply ng EGLD ay limitado, na nangangahulugang ayon sa mga patakaran ng software, magkakaroon lamang ng 20 milyong EGLD.

Bakit kailangan mong gumamit ng EGLD?

Maaaring makita ng mga user na kaakit-akit ang Elrond batay sa pagtatangka nitong lumikha ng nasusukat na platform para sa mga desentralisadong aplikasyon 

Higit pa rito, maaaring makita ng mga developer na kaakit-akit ang platform para sa kakayahang makakuha ng mas mataas na bahagi ng mga bayarin sa transaksyon sa loob ng kanilang mga naka-deploy na application.

Maaaring hangarin ng mga mamumuhunan na bumili ng EGLD at idagdag ito sa kanilang portfolio kung naniniwala silang papabor ang merkado sa mga nasusukat na platform ng aplikasyon.
