On 1st August, Status, an open source mobile dApp browser unveiled on Twitter, their client Nimbus, a project focused on sharding and scalability of Ethereum. Status has declared that their ultimate goal, in the long run, is to “drive mass adoption of Ethereum.”
Sharding is a kind of database segregation which divides enormous databases into smaller, quicker and conveniently manageable parts known as date shards.
Status, the first mobile Ethereum operating system, is a decentralized platform based purely on a peer-to-peer framework. Users are able to buy, sell and store Ether as well as other cryptocurrency assets with the added advantage of exploring and browsing through several decentralized apps.
Status decided to take on Nimbus as a research project with an aim to advance the collective work already done in scaling Ethereum and giving it wider access. Nimbus also aims to set up client implementation for sharding, light clients, and new school Ethereum-based technologies.
The Ethereum 2.0 Sharding Client is designed to be compatible with mobile devices and is said to function smoothly on IoT devices as well.
Status on their website said:
“The Ethereum 2.0 Sharding Client is designed to work well on mobile and embedded systems, that is modular enough to allow for rapid iteration and implementation of the research being done in terms of scaling will, we feel, advance greatly the goals of Ethereum as a decentralized ecosystem.”
The Nimbus team decided to use the programming language Nim as it is light in its makeup and therefore appropriate to run on resource-restricted devices. The team claims to have a deep-seated understanding of the blockchain platform and its ever-evolving technology.
The Ethereum protocol is said to have engaged the most experienced of developers and engineers. Vitalik Buterin, the Co-Founder of Ethereum in his Tweet said:
“Looking forward to Nimbus from @ethstatus!”
Twitter user, Surfcashchain said:
“Always push the limit of blockchain ! Gold job”
GenXMiner, another Twitterati commented:
“You guys gotta learn how to put this shit in layman’s terms, we need real world applications and real world explanations. Very few people write code HELLO!”
