We have many updates to share with you since our last update in December, which includes a re-brand, project updates and even more promise for 2021. Here at Zillacracy it’s been non-stop and we look forward to carrying this into the rest of the year.

#NEWYEARNEWME

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new, simpler website. The website has been stripped back to basics whilst keeping a trendy and professional finish. We have updated the new site with all the additional information you need on Zillacracy staking and so much more.

The site will go live very soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

Educational Platform

Grow with Zillacracy. We are very excited to announce the Zillacracy educational platform, where users can upload content to help educate the masses and even help users take their first steps in developing via Scilla.

Users who upload content and receive positive ratings by community members will be entitled to receive $ZIL. From a pot set aside by Zillacracy to encourage the community to help users and development on the Zilliqa platform.

The platform is currently under construction and we hope to release a completion date very soon.

Statement below from the QVote team:

We are delighted to announce that we are working with Zilacracy to build an entirely decentralized, open-source quadratic voting platform for on-chain governance of crypto communities on the Zilliqa blockchain.

QVote is also designed to be easily integrated into other dApps. We provide an SDK that nicely wraps around the smart contract functionality, so that developers can easily integrate on-chain quadratic voting functionality in their own applications.

We want QVote to become a community drive project. This means that a big part will enable developers to contribute to the development of the platform. We see these contributions in 3 major ways.

First improvements on the protocol, by amending the smart contracts. Secondly, extensions to the SDK for better functionality, or integration of improved protocols. Finally, the app itself will also be open source, and we’d love to see it modified and adapted to other diverse use cases.

Social Media Growth

We’ve enjoyed a very positive start to 2021 with the help of huge social media growth in December leading to all-time high stats on both Twitter and Medium. This brings a fresh wave of supporters and attention to the Zillacracy cause.

This has also brought an influx of developers looking for opportunities within the Zilliqa network, with more and more learning how to use Scilla, the native language of Zilliqa.
