Sharding

Sharding splits a blockchain company's entire network into smaller segments known as "shards," with each shard handling transaction processing. Sharding is used to relieve pressure on other components such as the CPU or GPU, allowing more computational power to be dedicated to solving cryptographic puzzles and reaching consensus.
