Blockchain technology, despite its transformative potential, faces significant scalability challenges as transaction volumes increase. Traditional linear blockchain architectures often struggle with performance bottlenecks, prompting the exploration of innovative solutions. This paper presents a study on enhancing blockchain performance through advanced load balancing techniques within split-join architectures. Split-join mechanisms partition the blockchain into smaller segments, processed concurrently to improve throughput. However, the effectiveness of this approach depends on efficient load distribution across these segments. This research addresses the critical gap in existing studies by developing and evaluating novel load balancing algorithms specifically designed for split-join blockchain systems. The proposed strategies dynamically distribute transaction loads, optimizing resource utilization and minimizing processing delays. Through extensive simulations and empirical evaluations, these algorithms are tested against conventional methods, demonstrating significant improvements in transaction throughput and latency. The study provides a comprehensive overview of blockchain scalability issues, the principles of split-join mechanisms, and the current state of load balancing research. By integrating dynamic load management with split-join architectures, this research contributes to the advancement of scalable and efficient blockchain networks. The findings have significant implications for high-demand applications such as finance, healthcare, and decentralized applications, highlighting the potential for broader adoption and more robust implementations of blockchain technology. This paper underscores the importance of innovative load balancing in overcoming scalability challenges, paving the way for future research and development in this critical area
