Apollo Becomes First Cryptocurrency to Successfully Implement Database Sharding
The all-in-one currency project is the first crypto to implement sharding on an active blockchain



NEW YORK, July 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Apollo Foundation has made history by becoming the first project to utilize sharding on an active blockchain and one of the first cryptocurrency ventures to implement a solution to blockchain bloat. Apollo sharding was activated on April 1, 2019, and the first shard segmented on the blockchain at block 2,225,000. This first shard signaled a monumental accomplishment towards blockchain advancement and a revolutionary moment in cryptocurrency history.

"With the release of sharding, Apollo has officially become the fastest, most feature-rich and most sustainable cryptocurrency available," says Steve McCullah, director of business development.

Apollo Cryptocurrency Brings You Database Sharing

Apollo (APL), a cryptocurrency backed by the Apollo Foundation, said Friday it successfully implemented database sharding to reduce blockchain bloat.

“With the release of sharding, Apollo has officially become the fastest, most feature-rich and most sustainable cryptocurrency available,” said Steve McCullah, Apollo's director of Business Development.

Blockchain bloat occurs with scaling and data accumulation; transaction speeds slow with increasing levels of use and data aggregation.

Apollo aims to pair this development with additions like adaptive forging, which eliminates wasteful block creation; blocks are made and forged only when transactions take place, lowering data use and storage.

“Sharding and adaptive forging make Apollo the most sustainable blockchain on Earth,” McCullah said in the press release.

The team behind Apollo believes these additions will assist in efforts to scale use of its blockchain technology.

This sounds promising - so why is this coin so hard to find on any major exchanges ?

Looks like we have to go to Binance for everything.  Most of the other exchanges only have btc,xrp and litecoin

That's not true. You can look at other exchanges like Bittrex and SouthXchange. Definitely more coins than just BTC, XRP and LTC being traded.
