We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Zilliqa, a next generation blockchain committed to providing scalable and secure solutions for developers and enterprises who wish to build decentralized applications on their platform.

As part of the partnership, Switcheo has secured a grant from Zilliqa to build a Uniswap-like DEX where users can trade ZIL or ZRC tokens directly on the Zilliqa blockchain, or pool liquidity to earn as market makers.

Switcheo will also integrate Zilliqa as the next blockchain within its current orderbook-based exchange, simulating orders from the on-chain liquidity pool. On top of that, traders will be able to use Switcheo’s renowned atomic swaps to trade tokens between Zilliqa and other blockchains without sacrificing self-custody. This initiative is currently estimated to be completed by the end of this year.

Watch this space for the latest updates and progress on our partnership with Zilliqa!
