What is Zilliqa?

✓ Allows development of secure & decentralised apps ✓ Innervator in scalability solutions ✓ Improving digital advertising

Zilliqa is a blockchain technology that is built to improve scalability in blockchain networks.

Zilliqa blockchain scalability means that Zilliqa aims to securely scale in an open, permissionless distributed network. The core feature that makes Zilliqa scalable is 'sharding' which is the division of the network into several smaller component networks capable of processing transactions in parallel.

ZIL’s high throughput means that you can focus on developing your ideas without worrying about network congestion, high transaction fees or security which are the key issues with legacy blockchain platforms.

The trustless connections formed on Zilliqa’s blockchain aim to create new ways for people to interact and trade with one another.

The Zilliqa platform utilises ZIL as its token or coin. The Zilliqa objective was to design a blockchain that could resolve issues surrounding blockchain scalability. When the cryptocurrency revolution experienced exponential growth in 2017, it became apparent that the first and second generation blockchain protocols of bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) had issues with scalability. As transactional demand has increased, blockchain validation speed has become slower. Hence, as more and more users accessed the system, the speed and efficiency of each transaction decreased drastically. In response to this, the Zilliqa platform was built to handle significant throughput, or data processing, without compromising on network efficiency. It will eventually be able to handle hundreds of thousands of transactions per second. The fundamental purpose of ZIL is to fuel the Zilliqa economy. Notably, ZIL is the currency for mining rewards, transaction fees and smart contract execution. Outside of these parameters, the ZIL token acts just like any other cryptocurrency. Users can send, hold and receive funds, wallet- to-wallet, and its value is determined by market demand. Zilliqa is the first platform to implement the concept of sharding on a live network and to actively use formal verification in smart contracts, these two features alone can enable Zilliqa to completely re-shape what blockchain can currently do. If you decide to buy ZIL you’ll be pleased to note that ZIL is in the top 30 cryptocurrencies. To buy ZIL is quite easy. Many services buy ZIL and sell ZIL, and there are more than 40 markets for Zilliqa cryptocurrency. However, Zilliqa is still a fairly new cryptocurrency that is not listed on many of the major exchanges yet. At present you can buy ZIL from cryptocurrency exchanges - either centralised or decentralised. Many exchanges allow you to deposit real world currencies into a crypto wallet and then to buy ZIL is a straight forward process. It would be highly unlikely to find an exchange that didn’t have easy to follow buying processes listed on their website. However, at this point in time it is not possible to buy ZIL for cash, using peer to peer resources or with credit or debit cards. Perhaps that will come about in the future! So ... should you buy ZIL? Well, only time will tell if it can deliver on its impressive objectives. As with all things cryptocurrency though ... if you buy ZIL early you may make a tidy profit!
