The first public blockchain to implement sharding on its mainnet
What is Zilliqa?
Zilliqa is the first public blockchain built entirely on a sharded architecture. Zilliqa adresses the blockchain trilemma by implementing sharding technique to solve scalability issue, using Scilla,the first peer-reviewed and safe by-design smart contract language to address security and utilising subdivided networks to achieve decentralisation. The consensus mechanisms of Zilliqa is unique in that it combines both Proof of Work and practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance. This is to achieve a scalable network but at the same time preserve its security.
