Brazilian Congress Passes Crypto Bill
Brazil’s lower house of Congress has passed a bill granting limited legal status to crypto payments and establishing a regulatory framework for the industry. Chamber Of Deputies Approve Crypto Bill On Tuesday, Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies approved a bill to establish a regulatory framework for the country’s crypto industry. The bill was previously approved by the Senate in April and was awaiting the decision of the Chamber of Deputies. The bill has passed into law and only requires the signature of the President to be enacted. However, the most noteworthy angle of the law is that it grants legal status to crypto payments for goods and services without granting crypto the status of legal tender. What’s Next For Crypto Bill? The bill was authored by deputy Aureo Ribeiro and sought to establish a “virtual service provider” license to be made mandatory for crypto exchanges and other crypto firms. Over the next 180 days, crypto companies based in Brazil will be required to follow the rules of registration, after which the law will be enforced. Once the law is in effect, the executive branch of the government, which includes the president and the ministers, will need to determine the government department responsible for supervising the legislature. It is most likely that the Central Bank of Brazil will be chosen for this task. As of now, the Brazilian counterpart of the SEC, the Comissão de Valores Mobiliários (CVM), is responsible for overseeing only the tokens that are categorized as securities. Increasing Oversight For Crypto The law has also recognized that digital currencies offer more opportunities for criminal activities of a massive scale due to their pseudonymous nature and has called for a “closer monitoring” of the industry. Accordingly, it establishes a new crime of fraud involving virtual assets, with penalties that include imprisonment and fines. Furthermore, the legislation did not approve an amendment to grant tax benefits to crypto miners and is also seeking to prevent another FTX-esque catastrophe; hence it directs crypto service providers to separate operational funds from those of the clients. Brazil’s Burgeoning Crypto Industry Brazil has been making significant moves in its crypto industry, taking strides instead of steps when it comes to establishing a regulatory framework to build on. For example, most recently, the country’s largest digital bank, Nubank, launched a program allowing its citizens to buy Bitcoin through its platform. Earlier this year, the mayor of Rio De Janeiro announced his plans to develop the city as the next global crypto hub. KuCoin’s “Into the Cryptoverse” report has also revealed that over 34 million Brazilians have invested in cryptocurrency. Therefore, this rapidly growing industry urgently needed a regulatory framework, which the Crypto Bill will now provide. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Web3 Accelerator Masterblox Wants More Women in Web3
Oeiras, Portugal, 22nd November, 2022, ChainwireMasterblox, a Lisbon-based crypto marketing company, has pledged to bring greater gender parity to the world of web3. Masterblox CEO Isabella Händel is on a mission to highlight the shortage of women working in the industry in a bid to foster greater inclusivity. It is estimated that 85% of all crypto users and workers are male; Isabella is one of the rare women who’ve made it all the way to the top. The industry is slowly becoming more gender inclusive, however, with female-centric projects like NFT collection World of Women gaining traction. Not only that, but female talent is being rewarded with leadership positions at an increasing rate. This trend is especially true among the younger demographics, as millennial women are becoming aware of the potential of blockchain technology and the diverse range of employment opportunities it offers. Isabella Händel is determined to lead by example in the hope that her success with Masterblox will inspire other women to follow suit. Her leadership skills have been fundamental to the success of Masterblox, where she is responsible for ensuring the quality of the company’s services and maintaining its extensive network of contacts and clients. Isabella has risen to the top of her profession at just 25 years of age. Before joining the blockchain industry, she studied traditional marketing and worked for several large corporations such as Siemens and Volkswagen. At the outset of the pandemic, Isabella began delving deeper into web3 and studying any relevant material she could get her hands on. She was pleasantly surprised by the lack of gender discrimination, finding the web3 community to be incredibly welcoming of women in general. In 12 months, Isabella rose to become the CEO at Masterblox. She is now responsible for leading and managing a team of over 30 professionals from different backgrounds, which includes marketers, copywriters, designers, and growth hacking experts. To help women leave an even deeper imprint within the web3 industry, German-Brazilian Isabella has plans to hire more female talent for Masterblox throughout 2023. She believes there is plenty of space for women within web3 and that the industry has everything to gain by becoming more gender-neutral. Isabella has extended a call to talented women with experience in crypto and marketing to reach out to Masterblox and take the next step in their career journey. About Masterblox Masterblox is a Lisbon-based web3 accelerator. Its work is divided between the foundation, which handles all the connections between VCs, partners and projects, and the labs, where its growth hacking methods and support services are provided to the projects within the acceleration program. Masterblox’s labs are responsible for assisting countless DeFi and blockchain projects with marketing, market making, copywriting, social media management, and much more.

The Move to Web3 Over the last few years, Web3 has experienced a huge growth in global adoption, and many companies are starting to position themselves in this new territory, from major technology companies to automotive companies and restaurant chains. JJ Delgado, General Manager of MOVE Estrella Galicia Digital, stated that: “In line with our philosophy of doing things differently, we are going to immerse ourselves in the Web3 ecosystem to create and incorporate solutions that bring value to our community. We recently announced our commitment to decentralise, the marketplace for artisan products which we launched a few months ago, and where we are going to identify Web3 use cases which allow us to work towards our goal”. The aim of TheHop Web3 Ventures is to develop new internal capacities, explore the new opportunities potentially offered by Web3 and co-create different initiatives with companies that are key in the Web3 ecosystem in areas such as NFTs, cryptocurrencies, tokenization DAOs and Metaverse, using the methodology, network and learnings obtained through TheHop.

Zilliqa (ZIL) Gains by 4x in March on Metapolis Metaverse FOMO
Zilliqa’s price has risen by almost 400% in the month of March The price increment is hinged on the anticipated launch of its Metapolis Metaverse Metapolis will be launched on the 2nd of April during a VIP event in Miami, Florida ZIL could undergo a pull-back after the launch of Metapolis The popular Ethereum competitor of Zilliqa has had an eventful month of March in terms of project developments, and price movement of its native digital asset of ZIL. Zilliqa […]

About Zilliqa

The live price of Zilliqa (ZIL) today is 0.022562 USD, and with the current circulating supply of Zilliqa at 13,616,291,337.91 ZIL, its market capitalization stands at 307,211,545 USD. In the last 24 hours ZIL price has moved -0.000031 USD or -0.00% while 7,926,888 USD worth of ZIL has been traded on various exchanges. The current valuation of ZIL puts it at #101 in cryptocurrency rankings based on market capitalization.

Learn more about the Zilliqa blockchain network and how it works or follow the price of its native cryptocurrency ZIL and the broader market with our unique COIN360 cryptocurrency heatmap.

Zilliqa is a layer-1 blockchain that is designed to offer high throughput with the capability to perform thousands of transactions per second. Zilliqa was first formulated by Prateek Saxena and a number of students back in 2015 when they published a paper outlining the advantages of a shard-focused blockchain and how it could improve network speed and efficiency. 

Zilliqa's native cryptocurrency was officially launched as ZIL in June 2017 by co-founders Amrit Kumar and Xinshu Don, researchers from the National University of Singapore. ZIL was initially made available as an ERC-20 token, raising $22 million in ETH through an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) held in 2017. The ZIL tokens on Ethereum were later swapped to ZIL coins on the Zilliqa mainnet which went live in January 2019.

The Zilliqa network aims to provide a blockchain platform with high scalability, by using a process known as sharding, allowing developers to host decentralized applications (DApps) and run smart contracts without facing network congestion and high gas fees, as the case for networks like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

ZIL price

According to our ZIL/USD live price chart, Zilliqa's coin saw its first bull run in early 2020, when ZIL price went from around $0.004 on Jan. 1, to $0.009 by Feb. 15, marking a gain of over 100%. However, ZIL's price declined in the following months as the crypto market turned bearish with the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. 

With the market still showing signs of volatility as it entered Q2 2020, the Zilliqa coin showed an impressive gain of 640% when it went from $0.004 in April. 16 to $0.030 on June 11. Despite the significant gain, the coin started to depreciate again, falling to $0.01. This pattern continued for the next couple of months when the token rallied to $0.02 on Aug. 11, falling short of its previous high in April, before falling again. 

Zilliqa’s next major rally came in Q4 of 2020 when the token jumped from $0.02 on Oct. 11, to around $0.1 on Dec. 27 — a gain of 427%. The price of the ZIL coin took a one-month breather before rallying to an all-time high when it went from $0.07 on Jan. 24, 2021, to $0.26 on May 6, 2021, with a gain of 280%+, putting ZIL’s fully diluted valuation at $5.4 billion. Nonetheless, Zilliqa lost a large share of gains as the crypto market crashed in May 2021.

With the crypto market showing signs of recovery in autumn of 2021, ZIL witnessed two noticeable spikes, $0.13 on Sep. 5, and $0.12 on Oct. 31, although it failed to reach its previous all-time high again. However, the crypto market collapsed again near the end of 2021, continuing to throttle as it entered 2022. 

Despite the significant price drop in Q4 of 2021, ZIL cryptocurrency managed to close the year with a 220%+ gain while ranking at 81 in terms of market cap.

How ZIL works

The Zilliqa network is quite similar to its competitors ETH, TRON, and EOS in regards to what it offers: smart contracting, transaction settlements, and token issuances. However, to make its ecosystem more robust, and faster, and to allow it to scale as the network grows, ZIL uses a technique known as sharding.

Sharding: Sharding is a partitioning technique used by blockchain developers/companies with the intention to increase scalability, allowing them to process more transactions per second by splitting the blockchain into smaller fragments known as shards. Each shard acts as its own independent blockchain allowing allotted nodes to store data, process transactions, and add new blocks to their designated shard chain, called micro blocks. These micro blocks are later merged with the transaction block by Directory Service Nodes (DS nodes), verifying their validity before adding them to the Zilliqa blockchain. This makes transactions faster as each shard only contains a particular subset of the Zilliqa blockchain instead of storing the entire history.

Central to Zilliqa’s governance and security is its Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (pBFT) consensus mechanism, which has a two-layer verification to ensure there are no bad nodes. The first layer is in charge of securing the blockchain from Sybil attacks, ensuring that nodes are only processing their designated micro blocks, rather than the whole blockchain. The second layer of the consensus mechanism finalizes each block by ensuring that two-thirds of the nodes agree that the record is accurate and there are no hard forks before adding it to the blockchain.

The Zilliqa network consists of a total of 2,400 nodes distributed across four shards with each transaction that is received by the network to be verified by a shard that consists of 600 nodes. However, in order to become a node, earn validating rewards, or help operate the system, you must first stake ZIL. 

Finally, Zilliqa uses its native programming language called Scilla, ensuring any decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts written on it are safe to run on the ZIL network, automatically identifying threats and eliminating them.

It is worth mentioning that Zilliqa also uses the proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm, utilizing it only for the verification of its miners.

ZIL news, updates, and highlights

In June 2020, lead crypto exchange Binance added ZIL staking support to its platform. Binance would become the second cryptocurrency exchange to partner with Zilliqa to offer ZIL staking after Kucoin. The platform would pay ZIL holders on their exchange 50 ZIL balance and an annual yield ranging from 8% to 10% in ZIL tokens. 

In October 2020, Switcheo announced the launch of its new decentralized exchange Zilswap, powered by the Zilliqa blockchain network. Zilswap, similar to Uniswap, also uses an automated market maker (AMM) built atop a permissionless liquidity pool. Zilliqa announced that this move would allow users to trade their ZIL tokens on the blockchain directly while staking them as liquidity providers to Zilswap pools to earn rewards. With the launch of Zilswap, Zilliqa became ready to step into the rapidly growing decentralized finance (DeFi) market.

With the gaming industry growing rapidly, expected to reach $200 billion by the end of 2022, Zilliqa partnered with Ninjas in Pyjamas (NIP), one of the biggest Swedish gaming organizations out there. The two inked a 5-year deal in November 2021, with the focus to deliver the best virtual and digital experience possible. Using Zilliqa’s scalability and security, NIP aspires to create a unique and immersive pay-to-earn experience for its fan all over the world.
