After the Zilliqa token sale back in December 2017, one of the main concerns about Zilliqa was that the team was just a group of Ph.D.’s that was entirely tech-oriented, but that didn’t have the skills to market and grow the platform. Now that Zilliqa just announced the second wave of Zilliqa Grant Awardees, and made many growth and marketing hires, it is fair to assume that this concern has been completely debunked.
The first round of #BuildOnZil grant awards was focused on the development of core infrastructure that Zilliqa needs as an ecosystem and a few interesting ideas that show the true power of a scalable blockchain that does not compromise on decentralization.
Some of the most interesting projects in this first round included:
The core focus of the second #BuildOnZil Grant Awards wave was User and Developer experience. It’s still very early in the blockchain space, and it is often hard for newcomers to interact with them. Hence, Zilliqa is putting a lot of thought and effort into not only being a scalable blockchain pioneer, but also a pioneer in usability and user experience.
Some of the most interesting projects in this second wave include:
Finally, in the latest Grant announcement the team also announced that it will soon be holding a third wave of Grant awards. This third wave will be focused on working on the following aspects:
Layer 2 Solutions (for gaming)

The Zilliqa ecosystem is growing and its growing fast, surprisingly, only a select few people in the cryptocurrency space seem to be aware of it at the moment.
The last point of concern that Zilliqa skeptics are echoing is speculation around another potential mainnet delay. However, Xinshu Dong (Zilliqa CEO), has already confirmed on multiple instances that this will not be the case, and that the mainnet will launch on time by the end of January 2019.
As soon as the Zilliqa mainnet goes live, the last skeptics are silenced, and this growing ecosystem comes to fruition, Zilliqa may very well redefine the entire blockchain space.
