Zilliqa is a new high-throughput blockchain platform that is designed to scale in an open, permissionless distributed network securely. In the most recent experiments, the Zilliqa private testnet network recorded a peak throughput of 2,488 transactions with 3,600 nodes. The underlying technology that makes Zilliqa scale is that of sharding — — dividing the mining network into smaller groups called shards, each capable of processing transactions in parallel. In fact, the throughput in Zilliqa increases as the network expands which makes Zilliqa truly scalable. Zilliqa has been featured in esteemed news outlets like CNBC, Cointelegraph, BlockchainNews, IBT, The Merkle, Digital Journal, etc.
