Zilliqa is one of the relatively large projects in the cryptocurrency space. 10,000 Zil tokens are to be given away to three people at the end of the show. Brief Introduction Of What Zilliqa Is Zilliqa has two main features to address, the first of which is scalability. Zilliqa is trying to solve the problem of blockchain scalability through sharding technology. This solution is so that Zilliqa can cope up with real-world requirements.

This language is designed for developers to create applications that are safe from hacker attacks and handle vast amounts of money.
