Zilliqa Short Description

Zilliqa is a new public blockchain platform for high-throughput applications. It brings the theory of sharding to practice with its novel protocol that increases transaction rates as its network expands. The latest experimental results demonstrate a throughput of more than 2,800 transactions per second, which is over 200 times higher than that of today's popular blockchains. In addition to its scalability, Zilliqa provides a secure and efficient smart contract language called Scilla to enable security-by-design smart contract programming and verification. The Zilliqa blockchain platform is tailored towards enabling high-throughput data-driven decentralized apps, designed to meet the scaling requirements of applications in areas such as digital marketing, payment, shared economy and rights management. Zilliqa is backed by a team of tech entrepreneurs, academics, senior engineers, venture capitalists, and more.
