Mainstream media is at it again as well as many other news outlets spreading fud - after taking a slight break attacking cryptocurrencies on Tuesday - news outlets such as CNBC are releasing headlines such as, "Most cryptocurrencies will crash to zero, Goldman Sachs says" other recent articles point out the recent hacks of Ethereum and how "devs don't know what to do" also releasing articles like "This NFL player lost money in Bitcoin and now he is listening to Warren Buffett" despite the recent price rises there will always be FUD being released - although not all of it is FUD, there are certainly many more positive articles popping up. As always we encourage our readers to not be swayed by these articles into doing impulsive trades and always to keep an objective perspective on the market.
42. What determines the difficulty level of PoWs? The difficulty is determined by estimating the network hashrate. We have assumed this to be an intrinsic parameter in Ethash. For the DS-level PoW, the difficulty estimation is going to be exactly the same as in traditional PoW- based blockchains such as Bitcoin. For the shard level, we will start with a standard pre-determined difficulty and measure the average time it took for each shard member to solve the puzzle. We then take the average. Similar measurements will be taken over several epochs, then we will take another average. This should allow the network to estimate the effective hashrate and hence adjust the difficulty.
Recently, we announced our #BuildonZIL Ecosystem Grant Programme to encourage teams and developers to contribute to our new, scalable, secure, and truly decentralized blockchain application infrastructure. When we launch our mainnet, we intend to have an ecosystem of applications running on Zilliqa that will support enterprises as well as end consumers.
We are thankful for the support of our community throughout our journey so far and are heartened by the number and quality of applications we have received so far.
Today, we are happy to share the first batch of 12 Zilliqa Ecosystem Grant awardees that will also be working alongside us to build infrastructure and also new applications on Zilliqa. These include Web3 libraries, wallets, extensions, smart contract libraries, Scilla language server, games as well as a cross-chain protocol for Bitcoin issuance. A big thank you to all those who participated and we look forward to receiving more applications in future!
Dear All,We are thrilled to announce that the Zilliqa mainnet has launched! This is a monumental milestone for the team and community. You may visit the block explorer at https://explorer.zilliqa.com. For mining on the Zilliqa mainnet, please refer to https://github.com/Zilliqa/Zilliqa/wiki/Mining.The Zilliqa mainnet is quite an accomplishment with innovative technologies being made live. With this launch, Zilliqa is now the first public blockchain platform to successfully implement sharding. It has made years of research, testing and trials into a public and live platform, that will lay a solid foundation for the not just new generation blockchains, but also a new generation of decentralised applications.Token SwapWe are glad to announce that we are working with the following exchanges to support the token swap from ERC20 to native ZIL tokens, which is expected to commence from late Q1 2019. The exact timelines will differ for exchanges. Please note that there is no action required from ZIL token holders at the moment.BinanceUpbitHuobiCoinbase and Coinbase CustodyKorbitCoinoneGate.ioBittrexGopaxKoinexCoinhakoList of wallets supporting native ZIL tokens:(some are still work-in-progress)Please DO NOT send ERC20 ZIL tokens to the wallets.Moonlet (audit done)Trust Wallet ZHIPLight-walletMidas ProtocolxZilLedger CompanionThe Road ForwardPost mainnet we will continue to be working on research and development in areas such as zkSNARKs and high-level language integrations with Scilla.We will also continue to nurture the Zilliqa ecosystem through grants and other initiatives such as our digital advertising project with Mindshare and other players Project Proton, Hg Exchange which is aiming to be the first member-driven private investment exchange in Southeast Asia. We also hope that BOLT, EMONT Frenzy by Etheremon, and exciting games from Krypton and MixMarvel take off with consumers.Once again, we would like to thank our community for your patience, and being on this journey with us. This is the beginning of what will be an amazing year for Zilliqa. We look forward to many more exciting developments, and sharing them with you all.You can also check out https://blog.zilliqa.com/zilliqa-mainnet-the-launch-and-beyond-4cd7e113369f for more details.
On the 14th February 2019, V-Dimension fully goes online. ICEX currency high-multiplier conversions and the Genesis Game officially begin. The client-end PC and App wallets will be available for download. Let’s all get excited for this perfect world of privacy-safety and wealth-freedom.The target for ICEX is to raise 1,150 Bitcoin to ensure at 50 bitcoin guarantee revenue will be distributed in the following 23 weeks to incentivize the ecological development. If the target is not reached, the development team promises to give back all the bitcoin and restart the project.Don't miss out on ICEX, the currency conversion high multiplier!!https://youtu.be/PIgrdsr5NTIV-Dimension Project Releasehttps://youtu.be/-qwKve-jnw0
Token SwapWe are glad to announce that we are working with the following exchanges to support the token swap from ERC20 to native ZIL tokens, which is expected to commence from Q2 2019. The exact timelines will differ for exchanges. Please deposit your ERC20 ZILs at an exchange that is supporting the swap.You will only be able to swap tokens through a participating exchange. There are no other alternatives.BinanceUpbitHuobiCoinbase and Coinbase CustodyKorbitCoinoneGate.ioBittrexGopaxKoinexCoinhako
分片可以加快速度。但是滞后因素也是一个问题。我问了官方，一个叫Jeremy的回答了我的问题。TPS is a function of latency and bandwith. It represents throughput. Zilliqa has very high bandwidth and medium latency. Ethereum has low bandwidth and low latency. Bitcoin has low bandwidth and high latency.Bandwidth is the amount of something you can fit at one timeLatency is the amount of time it takes to get it from start to destinationIn our context, latency is the duration of one block time. Zilliqa - 80s, Ethereum - 3s, Bitcoin - 600sTaking into account the unlock time (Zilliqa - 1 block, Ethereum - 30-60 blocks, Bitcoin - 10-30 blocks), the bandwidth for safe and secure transactions per second, Zilliqa really does have quite a lot more TPS一些项目宣称速度快，滞后小。还没有到主网阶段。

From Amrit (team Zilliqa)Question of the day: As you may know, we are in the process of implementing staking for seed nodes (which are nodes that do not participate in consensus). I have also been thinking about an extension of this project which is about introducing staking for consensus nodes. The idea that I am fiddling with is somewhat different from a PoS/DPoS network (as I think slashing is not important). As you may know in order to be a node in the Zilliqa network, you have to do a PoW. However, unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, PoW is not required for every block. In other words, PoW is not used as a consensus protocol but instead as a Sybil resistance mechanism. So, technically speaking, you can replace PoW with any other Sybil resistance mechanism particularly staking. So, in the current model, you have 100% of nodes that do PoW. You can imagine a hybrid model where say 70% of the nodes do PoW and the remaining 30% do staking. Once the network is formed, they will all do PBFT to validate transactions and create blocks. So, the question is the following: if the network has say 2000 nodes in total and if you réserve say 600 of them for staking then, how do you design your staking mechanism? Which one of the following mechanism would you go for and why (support your argument with economic and security implications): 1. Fix the amount that each node needs to stake. Say 1 million ZILs. This allows not-so-rich node to participate as well. 2. Auction the 600 slots to the highest (or rather the richest) bidders. 3. Any other mechanism that you can think of. Do note that in the ideal scenario, you do not want the same set of 600 nodes to join the network. You may want to add some randomness. Thoughts?
