Abstract: The current implementation of blockchain systems generally suffer from performance and capacity deficiencies,making it impossible to achieve deeper popularity and wider application.Sharding is considered as the most likely technology to solve the blockchain bottleneck.However,at present,the mainstream sharding schemes generally suffer from the problem of sacrificing decentralization or security to improve performance.Based on the existing sharding technology,this paper proposed the jump Hash wight asynchronous consensus group scheme,which builds shards based on jump hash and dynamic weights,to improve the efficiency and rationality of shards creation.The algorithm satisfies the characteristics of high efficiency,fairness,and adaptability.The network fragmentation efficiency is improved by 8% compared with Ethereum.The workload of node migration is reduced by 25% compared with Ethereum.The asynchronous consensus group mechanism is introduced to improve the transaction security of sharding and effectively handle cross-shard transactions.Through theoretical analysis and experiments,the maximum transaction performance of blockchain dynamic sharding model based on jump Hash and asynchronous consensus group can reach 5000 transactions per second.

Key words: Blockchain, Sharding, Jump Hash, Asynchronous consensus group, Dynamic weight
