Zilliqa (codename Durian)

Build Status codecov Gitter chat


Zilliqa is a new blockchain platform capable of processing thousands of transactions per second with sharding built into it. With sharding, Zilliqa has the potential to match throughput benchmarks set by traditional payment methods (such as VISA and MasterCard). More importantly, Zilliqa’s transaction throughput increases (roughly) linearly with its network size.

Available features

The current release has the following features implemented:

In the coming months, we plan to have the following features:

  • Incentive structure
  • Further unit and integration tests
  • Enhancement of existing features
  • More operating system support
  • And much more ...

Minimum system requirements

To run Zilliqa, we recommend the following minimum system requirements:

  • x64 Linux operating system such as Ubuntu
  • Recent dual core processor
  • 2 GB RAM

Note: Presently we are in active development on Ubuntu 16.04. The support for building on other Ubuntu versions or other OSes is pending.


  • Ubuntu 16.04:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install git libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-test-dev \
        libssl-dev libleveldb-dev libjsoncpp-dev libsnappy-dev cmake libmicrohttpd-dev \
        libjsonrpccpp-dev build-essential pkg-config libevent-dev libminiupnpc-dev \
        libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libcurl4-openssl-dev
  • macOS (experimental):

    brew install pkg-config jsoncpp leveldb libjson-rpc-cpp libevent miniupnpc protobuf

Running Zilliqa locally

  1. Build Zilliqa from the source.

  2. Run the local testnet script in build directory

    cd build && ./tests/Node/test_node_simple.sh
  3. Logs of each node can be found at ./local_run

  4. To terminate Zilliqa,

    pkill zilliqa
