One of the reasons for the volume spike can be associated to the listing on KuCoin, along with a string of deals, partnerships and integrations that expand the Elrond ecosystem which happened last week. The listing has got the coin a huge amount of exposure and many are associating it with the Elrond’s expansion plans.
What is EGLD?
Elrond is a blockchain protocol which offers fast transaction using the sharding technique. Sharding is a set of database partitioning technique that offers companies the scalability option, enabling them to increase the transaction speed per second. Sharding reduces the slowness of a network as it breaks the blockchain into shards.
Developed by Beniamin and Lucian Mincu alongside Lucian Todea, the Elrond project was first announced in August 2019, and went live in July 2020. Due to its smart contract’s ecosystem, it can execute 15,000 transactions per second at a transaction cost of US $0.001. EGLD protocol is used for paying network fees and offers staking abilities and rewards for the validators.
EGLD comes with a strong bullish momentum. Barring today’s blip, the coin overall has had a good two-month run showcasing the possibility of hitting US $400 by the end of 2021 itself.
Backed by developments within the EGLD ecosystem and the recent upswing, EGLD could soon shrug off a one-off bad days and soon be on the path to achieve new highs. It will be best for investors to take advantage of the hypergrowth stage of the cryptocurrency and early investors do stand a chance of benefitting from it.
