About Zilliqa

Based on the concept of sharding and with a focus on enhancing scalability for cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, Zilliqa is a decentralized platform that prioritizes speed and security. The network boasts a transaction speed that is claimed to be a thousand times faster than Ethereum.

The development of the Zilliqa cryptocurrency network commenced in June 2017, with the testnet going live in March 2018. Just over a year later, in June 2019, the platform's mainnet was launched.

With Zilliqa's impressive throughput, you can now dedicate your energy to bringing your ideas to life, without concerns about network congestion, high transaction fees, or security issues that often plague early layer-1 blockchain platforms.

Zilliqa recently announced its plan to deploy Zilliqa 2.0. Zilliqa 2.0 is set to introduce an enhanced network architecture that prioritizes efficiency, flexibility, and speed. This upgraded version will empower developers with greater control and the ability to implement dynamic updates.

About ZIL and stZIL

Introduced in 2017, Zilliqa (ZIL) coin serves as the native utility token for the Zilliqa crypto network. It plays a vital role in maintaining and operating the network, while also offering functionalities such as retention, sending, and staking.

Through ownership and staking of ZIL, users gain the ability to participate in voting for network enhancements, with the voting power directly proportional to the amount of ZIL they stake. Similar to Bitcoin, the supply of Zilliqa coin is limited, with a maximum cap of 21 billion ZIL, ensuring a finite availability.

The liquid staked derivative of ZIL, stZIL, recently launched on Avely Finance. Avely Finance is a liquid staking protocol on Zilliqa. Anyone can mint stZIL from ZIL, earning you the native staking rewards from the underlying ZIL tokens. This helps in unlocking your capital for other DeFi activities, that would have initially been locked up in staking. Hence liquid staking helps in removing the opportunity cost of the staking rewards.
