Recently, MultiVAC – the public blockchain known as ‘The Shard Killer’ was interviewed by an influential Korean blockchain media. Dr. Shawn Ying, the CTO of MultiVAC, explained MultiVAC’s sharding plan in detail.
Sharding plan has become phenomenal in public blockchain’s scale-up discussion. Vitalik Buterin also expressed his personal confidence in this plan’s feasibility – “Five years ago, almost no one was thinking about sharding; now, sharding designs are commonplace.“ However, the Sharding plan also faces various challenges like how to solve cross-shard synchronization, how to avoid state explosion problems, etc. Proposals on the market are far from mature.
Dr. Shawn states, “Through the world’s first all-dimensional sharding plan, MultiVAC achieves effective scale-up in computing, storage, and transmission, and can fully support large-scale applications in real business scenarios. Compared with other sharding plans, MultiVAC’s is more efficient, flexible, and scalable. MultiVAC is the ultimate multi-core world computer which can never be shut down.“
“In cross-shard collaboration, MultiVAC is the first to adopt an asynchronous collaboration strategy. This strategy makes sure our shards never block each other. No performance bottleneck is detected yet. And the network is guaranteed to achieve efficient expansion.“
“In addition, MultiVAC designs a separation mechanism for the data storage right and data control right. Storage nodes will only serve for storing data as the network’s infrastructure, and cannot tamper with the data. While, ordinary nodes have the complete control right of the data, and can verify and update the data through the consensus mechanism. In virtue of this interactive storage strategy, MultiVAC successfully eliminates the possibility of state explosion problem.“
MultiVAC launched a node client beta test on 31st Oct and delivered a smooth and efficient operation experience for all testers. MultiVAC testnet 3.0 will launch a brand-new node client and support dynamic re-sharding function soon.
