Zilliqa (ZIL) - Coin of the Week

Zilliqa (ZIL) - Coin of the Week

Zilliqa (ZIL) is a blockchain project that aims to develop a global financial network based on decentralized technology. Zilliqa is one of the various blockchain projects that want to develop an ecosystem of decentralized applications (dApps).

The history of Zilliqa (ZIL)

The Zilliqa project was launched in June 2017 by Amrit Kumar and Xinshu Don, two researchers from Singapore. In a 2017 funding round, in which it sold ZIL units, the Zilliqa team raised over USD 22 million. The blockchain network went live in January 2019. Zilliqa is supported by the company Zilliqa Research, as well as a company focused on the development of the project, called ZILHive.

How does Zilliqa (ZIL) work?

ZIL is based on the "sharding" process, which involves a technique that divides the blockchain network into several fragments, allowing blockchain nodes to process only a fraction of the network's transactions. Each fragment acts as its own blockchain and allows nodes to store data, process transactions, and add new blocks to the network. Shard nodes contain a specific subset that does not store all transactions from the main network to increase security.

Another key element for Zilliqa is the governance mechanism that keeps the blockchain network synchronized. In order for nodes to feed the blockchain network and vote on changes, they must block units of ZIL, which means that anyone who owns ZIL can help operate the network. The governance mechanism ensures that all nodes assigned to fragments are verified.

Zilliqa only needs PoW consensus every 100 blocks. This strategy uses PoW only to prevent attacks and generate node identities. In addition, the network uses a signature algorithm widely used in many of the leading blockchains, such as Ethereum.
