More About Zilliqa
Zilliqa is a 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, they provide 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. The underlying technology has been first incubated in a research lab at the National University of Singapore, and then developed for commercial trials, before being applied to Zilliqa’s public blockchain platform.
