Solana CEO: Fragmentation technology may introduce security risks for blockchain projects

According to CryptoBriefing, fragmentation is widely considered to be a solution to blockchain scalability. But Solana CEO Anatoly Yakovenko said projects that implement fragmentation technology may introduce new security risks into their blockchain, potentially making them vulnerable to consensus attacks. He believes that the risks associated with fragmentation far outweigh any possible scalability benefits. “Once you split the network, an additional attack vector is introduced. Fragmentation technology can undermine security.” If a shard is taken over by a hacker, it can trigger a domino effect that affects the price of the token, resulting in a large user and node. Out-of-scale flow. He added that the shards allow hackers to use a divide-and-conquer strategy to destroy the already thriving ecosystem. Radix (XRD) CTO and co-founder Dan Hughes said that fragmented blockchains are susceptible to security risks, but they have created a secure slice implementation. He added that although the first fragmentation iteration may make the blockchain vulnerable, the technology is growing rapidly. Blockchain projects have a narrow path between security and scalability, but it is not insurmountable.
