Scalable blockchain Elrond has made the leap onto its mainnet and drastically reduced the token supply in the process.

  • As part of the transition, Elrond said total token supply had been drastically reduced from 20 billion to just 20 million.

  • Rather than burning tokens, Elrond is using an exchange swap where 1,000 testnet ERD tokens translate into just one token on mainnet – called Elrond Gold (eGLD).

  • ERD tokens are currently trading at $0.02, according to CoinGecko, up 1,200% year to date.

  • The redenomination means new eGLD tokens will be worth $24.80 each.

  • At the present market cap, the move onto mainnet means $473 million worth of tokens have been redenominated.

  • Starting in 2018, Elrond describes itself as an interoperable blockchain network that uses sharding to scale to up to 250,000 transactions per second.

  • It raised $3.2 million by selling 25% of the token supply in an exchange offering on Binance Launchpad in 2019.
