Harmony’s ‘mainnet’ was initially released to go live in 2019 as a simple sharding protocol having an unreliable Ethereum bridge to make some distinct segments in the blockchain for processing the transactions and storing the data simultaneously. Since then, announcements have been made by the project with the multiple partners as well as integrations such as the token of Tera (‘stablecoin’ platform) to be transferred to Harmony for being utilized on apps within the ecosystem.
