November looks to be an exciting month for us as we push relentlessly for more milestones in enhancing our Zilliqa protocol. Besides achieving an unprecedented level of throughput on our testnet, we have compiled some videos of our team to share more about our aspirations and vision for Zilliqa.
As always feel free to send your feedback to [email protected] if you would like to contribute your opinion to our newsletter. We look forward to hearing from you.
Highlights of fresh experimental results: testnet v0.5
For the new internal testnet, our goal was to increase the network size and stress test Zilliqa’s performance. Ensuring that the throughput increases with the network size is non-trivial when the network grows from small to moderately large.
Blockchains today suffer from the scalability problem and this hinders their adoption in several interesting applications in the real-world. Zilliqa presents a solution to the scalablility problem by employing the idea of sharding.
Zilliqa for high throughput application
Zilliqa due to its high throughput will enable applications that create high volume transactions. Many of these applications were hitherto difficult to run on blockchain platforms due to their low throughput.
The Zilliqa Design Story Piece by Piece: Part 1 (Network Sharding)
This article starts a series in which we break down Zilliqa’s design piece by piece. In this article, we present the core idea of sharding that makes Zilliqa scale. Sharding in Zilliqa takes many forms: network sharding, transaction sharding, and computational sharding. The most important being network sharding as the other sharding mechanisms are built atop the network sharding layer.
