Zilliqa Monthly Newsletter — February 2021
What’s up Zilliqans,
February has been a whirlwind month for us marked by significant growth, adoption and push towards greater utility of the $ZIL blockchain.
We started the month strong, partnering with Grammy nominated hip-hop performer Soulja Boy to mint his NFTs on the Zilliqa Mintable store. Another artist we worked with to produce NFTs was American House music DJ and record producer, Starkillers.
On the DeFi front: ZILSwap saw exponential growth in Total Value Locked (TVL). Since the launch of their native governance token $ZWAP, the TVL has grown from approximately $3,000,000 at the start of the month to a staggering $49,911,049 as at time of writing. This puts us comfortably in top 10 in terms of TVL amongst the Ethereum DEXes.
In our relentless attempt to drive more engagement, we’ve broadened the community’s access to our C-suite via Youtube, Clubhouse and Reddit. Check the community news section below.
We’ve also been making rounds in the news recently, with Zilliqa’s strategic investment in influencer academy, Xcademy. The investment aligns with our vision of tokenising the rapidly growing influencer industry and creating more mainstream use cases. Ultimately we seek to increase our network effect and greater exposure to a non-crypto native audience, accelerating our pace of growth.
February was indeed a packed month, but believe me when I say we’re really only just getting started. Expect to see bigger things happening in the following months!
