Sharding is a technology that is talked about often in the cryptocurrency community. While sharding has been an important part of traditional database technologies for many years now, it's finally being not only discussed but also implemented by a few projects as a solution for blockchain scalability. In this article, we'll discuss sharding's emergence to date, its current implementations, and how exactly its implementation could change the future of payment scalability.
