Does TON blockchain support sharding? How does that improve scalability?

I read in the TON Whitepaper that TON blockchain supports sharding.

How is this mechanism working? How does it allow the network to scale to billions of transactions?

TON uses a variant of the blockchain called the "multi-blockchain" architecture, which allows it to perform sharding. Sharding is a technique used to divide a large database into smaller, more manageable parts, called shards. This allows for better performance and scalability by distributing the workload across multiple machines.
