Status important for Ethereum and Vitalik Buterin to implement Nimbus, a 2.0 sharding client
Ethereum is about to go a step ahead in the crypto market as Status, is working to advance the collective work of scaling Ethereum. To attain the same, Status- an open source mobile DApp browser and messenger that is built for Ethereum, will introduce Nimbus, which is its own sharding 2.0 client.
Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, is excited about Nimbus and waiting for it to be introduced. He mentioned Status on Twitter and stated: “Looking forward to Nimbus from @ethstatus!”

How will Nimbus aid Ethereum with sharding and scalability?
In order to advance the collective work of scaling the open-source distributed computing platform, Status has been working to build its our own client, called Nimbus. It has a particular focus on sharding. “Nimbus is written in a language called Nim, which offers us various unique features capable of handling both the complex computations required, while ensuring they can still happen on resource-restricted devices,” said Status that aims at driving mass adoption of the open source platform.
Nimbus that will be specifically focusing on sharding, is a research project, tailored to addresses the concerns of scalability and wide access. “We feel Ethereum 2.0 will mostly live in embedded systems, so have designed Nimbus to perform well on IoT and personal mobile devices, including older smartphones with resource-restricted hardware,” Status mentioned.
Explaining further, the open source mobile DApp browser, said: “We also aim to make Nimbus extensible, configurable, and modular. A client designed to work well on mobile and embedded systems, that is modular enough to allow for rapid iteration and implementation of the research being done in terms of scaling will, we feel, advance greatly the goals of Ethereum as a decentralised ecosystem.”
