In Announcements

We are thrilled to announce the new ZIL token listing on Liquid

What is Zilliqa? 

Zilliqa is a high-performance, high-security, and low fee blockchain platform built for business, catalyzing open commerce with secure-by-design smart contracts and low-cost transactions for digital assets.

Developed through academic research, Zilliqa is helmed by a team of experienced scientists, leading engineers, financial services specialists, and venture creators. Driven by the mission to commercialize blockchain-based applications, Zilliqa focuses on use cases across asset securitization, decentralized and open finance, incentivized marketing, and secure tokenization — the conversion and representation of assets as digital blockchain-based tokens.

In 2019, Zilliqa became the first public blockchain platform built on sharded architecture, with smart contracts written in the platform’s secure-by-design programming language, Scilla.

What else should I know about Zilliqa? 

The critical element of the Zilliqa DeFi ecosystem is ZIL staking, ZilSwap, and XSGD stablecoin. 

The current total value locked in DeFi in ZIL is $519M. gZIL are new ZRC-2 compliant fungible tokens that can be earned alongside staking rewards. gZIL will only be issued when users withdraw their ZIL stakings rewards from the designated SSN operator. For every 1,000 ZIL earned as a staking reward, 1 gZIL will be issued (i.e., 0.001 gZIL will be issued for every 1 ZIL staking reward).

gZIL is essentially a governance token that empowers long-term token holders and frequent engagers to become decision-makers in the Zilliqa ecosystem. That can be compared to a DAO- like structure where gZIL holders can vote and make decisions on community and partner projects powered by ZIL.

ZilSwap is a fully on-chain, decentralized exchange running on Zilliqa, a high-performance, a scalable public blockchain platform with a 3.23B $ZIL trading volume as of Q2 2021.

Last but not least, XSGD is the Singapore dollar stablecoin run on Zilliqa. It is ranked as Top 3 stablecoins by the proportion of the total supply of non-USD fiat-backed stablecoins. Zilliqa's smart contracts are the backbone of the XSGD infrastructure. They act as a solid security layer to efficiently manage peer-to-peer payments and cross-border transactions. XSGD is also available on Liquid via trading and Buy and Swap purchases.
