YEREVAN (CoinChapter.com)- Zilliqa (ZIL) token price has started showing signs of recovery after last week wiped an additional 30% from its recent gains. The price of ZIL has been on a steep decline since the token attained its all-time high (ATH) of $0.2563 in May 2021.

Zilliqa is a public blockchain network that Amrit Kumar and Xinshu Don, both researchers from the National University of Singapore, launched in June 2017. Zilliqa’s native token, the ZIL started as an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token. However, the founders launched their indigenous mainnet two years later, in 2019.

As the network implements sharding at the core of its ecosystem architecture, it is a scalable blockchain that offers faster and cheaper transactions. Because of its ability to handle complex computational processes Zilliqa has proven itself to be a useful platform to build decentralized applications (dApps).

Zilliqa prepares to launch its Metaverse, the Metapolis

One of the biggest catalysts to its success lately has been its anticipated metaverse entry. The company recently announced it will be launching its extended reality (XR) platform, dubbed ‘Metapolis’ in January 2022.

“We’re making it official. Metapolis, Zilliqa’s highly immersive, customisable extended reality (XR) #metaverse platform – Coming soon in 2022!” 

the company said last month.

On Tuesday, Zilliqa took to Twitter to reveal the roadmap of its Zilliqa City. Comprising of 3 phases, the roadmap reveals in detail what each one will include. 

In the first phase, the company will allow users to make their personalized avatars, engage in asset trading as well as participate in NFT sales. In addition, the blockchain will also organize community events and free airdrops for users.

The second phase of Zilliqa city is set to activate token staking and play-to-earn (P2E) games while the third phase will bring partnership expansions and DAO creation.

“For some clarification: Metapolis is the whole Metaverse in which Zilliqa City is built in. Think of it as Metapolis being the whole universe, while Zilliqa City is a district that’s part of the greater universe!” 

the company explains.

What lies ahead for Zilliqa? 

The Zilliqa blockchain, despite the recent slump on the charts, has attracted a lot of interest. The network has around 108,000 smart contracts deployed and $267 million in total value locked (TVL). In addition, 36.57% of the total tokens in circulation are staked, according to the website.

Between 2020 to 2021, the native token ZIL recorded a 648% increase in the annual average of its market cap. The average 24-hour trading volumes also rose by 189% during the same period. 

With Metapolis now about to launch, the price of ZIL could easily regain its all-time high before targetting $1 in the months to come.  

As indicated by the response to a query on Twitter, Meta (Facebook) could have some collaboration plans with Zilliqa’s Metapolis. Should that happen, ZIL token price will wear its rally boots earlier than we expect.
