We are thrilled to announce that Cartesi is partnering with Elrond (EGLD) to integrate optimistic rollups for high computational scalability and enabling a Linux runtime for smart contracts. This partnership is part of Cartesi’s continual emphasis on the mainstream adoption of blockchain tech and its commitment to allowing developers to deploy their DApps on the most relevant blockchains.

Elrond is one of the fastest-growing blockchain projects in the industry, bringing a highly scalable, fast and secure blockchain platform for distributed apps, enterprise use cases and the new internet economy.

Through our partnership, Cartesi will expand the array of possibilities for smart contract developers building on Elrond, who will be able to use mainstream software stacks supported by Linux. Besides the advantages of higher productivity given by the vast software ecosystem of the world’s prevailing OS, smart contracts on Elrond will be complemented by massive off-chain computational throughput.

Cartesi Rollups running on Elrond will preserve the security guarantees of the blockchain, creating great opportunities for a new generation of more complex decentralized applications.

Cartesi and Elrond will collaborate from 2021 on the integration, working together to onboard the next billion people and bring blockchain to mainstream adoption.

We encourage anyone with questions to join our development community on Discord!

About Elrond

Elrond is the internet-scale blockchain, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 6-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.

About Cartesi

Cartesi is taking smart contracts to the next level. It is solving the urgent problem of scalability and high fees by implementing a variant of optimistic roll-ups. Most notably, Cartesi is revolutionizing smart contract programming by allowing developers to code with mainstream software stacks instead of Solidity. Noether is Cartesi’s side-chain that’s optimized for ephemeral data, providing low-cost data availability to DApps.
