Cardano and sharding

Cardano is a monolithic blockchain and upgrading Ouroboros Leios won’t change that. Many blockchain project teams have implemented sharding in an effort to achieve higher scalability. Cardano could also, in theory, one day have sharding. However, this will definitely not happen before the implementation of Ouroboros Leios. Let’s explore the differences between a monolithic and a sharded blockchain from a consensus perspective. The topic is complex, so we will deliberately focus on only some aspects. For the sake of simplicity for the reader, the article does not aim to provide complete and comprehensive information.
