A Zilliqa wallet is on its way for iOS devices

The development of the new wallet is part of its bounty programme

Zilliqa, the sharding-focused public blockchain project, has reportedly begun the development of its brand-new Zilliqa wallet for various Apple OSs.

As part of its Zilliqa Ecosystem Grant Programme – a pool of US $5 million for anyone who wish to develop tools and applications for this platform – the startup has just awarded an entrepreneur for the aforementioned task. Alexander Cyon, a Swedish cryptographic enthusiast graduated from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, has begun developing the SDK for Zilliqa’s upcoming crypto wallet.

His GitHub repository contains several files for the building of this app, and according to it, it is written in the Apple-developed programming language Swift 4.1, thus aiming to be released for iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

Head of Business Development at Zilliqa, En Hui Ong, shared his thoughts about the awardee on the blockchain project’s official Telegram group. “We are excited to have so many community developers like Alex contribute to the development of Zilliqa,” he said.
No release date or further info was provided, however.

About Zilliqa

Zilliqa is a public blockchain project focused on solving the infamous scalability problem that became notorious in popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. By dividing the workload and distributing it across groups of 600 nodes – each group is known as a shard – the network is capable of processing transactions in a more efficiently way than other blockchains.

The reason for achieving this processing capacity is thanks to its hybrid consensus mechanism. The network uses Proof-of-Work (PoW) for establishing the identity of a machine, which is limited to run one single node. Once the node is assigned to a shard, the network runs a Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) consensus to agree on the miniblocks each shard is processing, so they can be combined into a full block that will be added to the blockchain.
