Zilliqa recently announced that its mainnet launch will be delayed until January 2019. Having kept up to speed with their roadmap thus far, we look at what this means for the Zilliqa community.
Zilliqa To The (TSP) Rescue
Blockchain technology offers great potential for a multitude of industries, yet scaling remains one of its biggest issues, affecting everything from legacy technology Bitcoin to industry-standard Ethereum. If you’ve ever had a transaction sit in the chain for hours (sometimes days), it will come as no surprise that a new race has developed among startups: solving the TPS (transactions per second) problem.
Zilliqa, one of just 28 cryptocurrencies to surpass the US$1 billion market cap and the second blockchain from Singapore to do so, is working to alleviate this. Of course, due to the complexity of the issue, achieving this is no mean feat. CEO Xinshu Dong has said in an interview that while this is simple in theory, getting there is not nearly as easy.
