As we plan for a brighter tomorrow with you, we are delighted to launch the first phase of the new Zilliqa website.preview.zilliqa.com We believe this website is a step forward in highlighting who we are and what we stand for very clearly. Part of this is our distinctive campaign titled ‘Faces of Zilliqa’, through which we show appreciation to the diverse members of our community from all walks of life who have built on us, invested in us and championed us - through ups and downs in the crypto-economy.
