In addition to adopting Graphene technology, UPCX also uses sharding to operate the blockchain even more stable.

In the context of blockchain, sharding is a scaling solution aimed at increasing the throughput and efficiency of a blockchain network. In a traditional blockchain, each node maintains a complete copy of the ledger and validates all transactions. This design ensures a high level of security and decentralization but can lead to bottlenecks and scalability issues as the network grows and transaction volumes increase.

Sharding addresses these issues by dividing the blockchain into smaller, interconnected sub-chains or shards. Each shard maintains a portion of the overall ledger and is responsible for validating and processing a subset of transactions. This allows the network to execute multiple transactions in parallel, significantly increasing its throughput and efficiency.

Sharding offers many benefits such as faster transaction confirmation times, parallelized operations, replicated shards on different servers and locations, failover and recovery mechanisms, near-infinite scalability to handle increased load requirements, increased throughput, and more.

UPCX uses sharding to improve the ability to handle large amounts of data and requests when the blockchain is scaled up by adding servers and nodes as the volume of data grows.
