7ScalabilityScalability through state, transaction and network sharding: More shards are added as the network demand grows. The technology ensures that at no level the network is bottlenecked.No further scalability optionsScalability through multiple concurrent specialized chains, subnets that have various architectures and features.Offchain solutions such as Lightning Network, that use specialized channels for fast confirmation times. It doesn't have the same security properties of the main blockchain.Offchain solutions such as Hydra, that use specialized channels for fast confirmation times. It doesn't have the same security properties of the main blockchain.No further scalability optionsNo further scalability optionsScalability through Sharding: State, Transaction and Network, that enables more shards to be added as the network needs more capacity. The scalability through the 3 types of sharding ensures that at no level the network is bottlenecked.Scalability through Sharding: State, Transaction and Network, that enables more shards to be added as the network needs more capacity.
