Zilliqa (ZIL) rose more than 150% last week and was the biggest gainer in the period. The token associated with a blockchain that says it is the first to rely on a sharded network entirely is focused on high throughput and fast transactional speed.

Why Is It Moving? Sharding is a reference to splitting a blockchain into smaller partitions, with each subunit known as shard. This process can help the network become faster and reduce latency.
Ethereum, a larger rival of Zilliqa, is expected to ship Shard chains in 2023, according to the project’s website.
ZIL’s price spike eclipsed the rise in Bitcoin, Ethereum and Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) last week, which rose by 15%, 16.2% and 24.35%, respectively.
ZIL has seen a pump based on euphoria surrounding Metapolis — a metaverse.
The metaverse runs on unity, unreal engine and Nvidia Corporation’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) Omniverse platform. Metapolis is billed as the first-ever Metaverse-as-a-Service platform or MaaS.
Yes, the rumours are true. Zilliqa will be hitting up #Miami to host an exclusive, early-access event for Metapolis!!
