Zilliqa Community Update 11 June

The beginning of a new era

Greetings everyone,

This is a historic week for us. To recap — yesterday, Zilliqa launched smart contracts, officially making us the first ever fully-functioning public smart contracts platform built on a sharded architecture. Yes, you heard it. Since our inception we have aspired to address technology gaps (such as scalability and security) with quality infrastructure solutions. This success is therefore a huge step for us, and for the entire blockchain industry given that we delivered what we set out to do when we first published our paper on sharding and smart contracts in 2017. You can learn more about this milestone here.

The community has received this news with much enthusiasm and positivity given that they can now start building on Zilliqa. We look forward to the myriad of dApps built to scale on Zilliqa.

The first day

We are grateful for how positively this has been received by the community and media. In fact, people who waited patiently for this development have already begun to deploy dApps on Zilliqa. The sheer level of engagement we’ve enjoyed is a further proof that this is just the start of a new chapter for the blockchain ecosystem.

We will continue to share updates on this with you.

A snapshot of coverage from our announcement that smart contracts have been launched on the Zilliqa network — from Yahoo! News to CoinDesk, Smartereum, CryptoBriefing, and many more! We’re so thrilled to celebrate this milestone with all of you.

Trust wallet supports mainnet ZILs starting today

We are happy to announce that we are collaborating with Trust Wallet, the secure mobile multi-currency crypto wallet.
