Ethereum Singapore Meetup 

Presented by

Zilliqa Keynote: Next- Gen Scalable Blockchain 


About the project:

Zilliqa is a new public blockchain developed by a group of computer scientists, engineers, and financial service veterans. It brings the theory of sharding to practice with its novel protocol that increases transaction rates as its network expands. The platform is tailored towards enabling secure data-driven decentralized apps, designed to meet the scaling requirements of applications in areas such as financial services and digital marketing. Zilliqa has been under research and development for two years. It has powered several ground-breaking deployments commercially to date.

Outline of the talk:

- Brief intro of the background of the project 

- Team 

- Prior research and interactions with the community 

- Private deployment (a trial with a regional exchange and banks, shipping) 

- Decision to build a public blockchain to benefit broader community

- Examples of high-throughput applications it enables
- Technology sneak preview (very high-level)

Plans to engage with the community include: 

- To maintain compatibility in PoW and hashing with Ethereum 

- To explore ways to compile Solidity/EVM/web3 code into Zilliqa smart contracts 

- To build a research-oriented community to collaborate with Ethereum to nurture scientific study and proposals for blockchain technologies.
