Blockchains have the potential to revolutionize the way traditional services get delivered to end users with the promise of decentralization, security and transparency. The inability to scale to the demands of internet-scale user base however, has limited the real-world applications of blockchains.

Zilliqa is a new high-throughput public blockchain platform that can enable real-world applications hitherto not possible. The novel idea that makes Zilliqa scalable is the concept of sharding. Proposed by some of the Zilliqa team members in a research paper, the idea of sharding has been brought to life with the Zilliqa testnet (first globally). Zilliqa testnet can reach thousands of transactions per second without sacrificing security and decentralization.
