2019 has been a whirlwind and landmark year for Zilliqa. We celebrated the launch of our mainnet and smart contracts platform, becoming the first blockchain platform to be built on sharding that provides a safe-by-design smart contract language Scilla. We also saw the deployment of the first high-volume dApps on our network. The Unstoppable Domains contract for instance has driven unprecedented traffic to the Zilliqa network and clearly illustrates the opportunities that mainstream adoption of blockchain could bring down the road, and how the Zilliqa platform could play an enabling role.
At Zilliqa, our goal has always been to provide an enterprise-ready platform underscored by greater standards of security as we work towards establishing industry best practices. Two years on, we have delivered on our promises — building a far-reaching solution capable of powering a range of platforms and products for start-ups and multinational corporations alike.
THE ZILLIQA TEAM
Building a blockchain network — from its programming language to its consensus protocol — is no small feat. At Zilliqa, no one would know this better than our CTO and Co-Founder Yaoqi who played a crucial role in designing our core protocol. With the tech team now more than capable of managing our mainnet as a result of his guidance over the past two years, Yaoqi will now take on the role of advisor and Member of the Board at Zilliqa.
Having addressed the matter of blockchain scalability and security with Zilliqa, at this stage in his career, Yaoqi would like to explore new industry challenges in order to test his strengths and focus on the entire ecosystem. Though no longer involved in the day-to-day technical development, Yaoqi will continue to advise the tech team going forward — as co-founder, he will always be a part of the Zilliqa family and we support him wholeheartedly in this next stage of his career.
