Zilliqa’s first DEX, built by Switcheo, Zilswap, was launched successfully at the ongoing week’s onset. Zilswap is a completely on-chain, decentralized exchange running on a high performing, scalable blockchain that is scalable—Zilliqa.
Zilswap is likely to be the entry point in upgrading the platform for Decentralized Finance (DeFi). This will lead to trading crypto for the first time on Zilliqa blockchain as Zilswap uses a constant product automated market maker, which happens to be quite similar to Uniswap.

Zilswap is that upgrade of Zilliqa that will lead to making it the most lucrative platform amongst the top 100 of the global market. In this regard, it was just two days back when Zilliqa recorded 8 million transactions in 9 months after their mainnet launch that happened on January 31, 2019. This is not just a number but a victory for the platform so far, and Zilswap is likely to lead to an even amplified number by the end of this year.
8 million transactions already when we just hit 7 million…? No brakes for $ZIL 📈
