Zilliq 1.0 goes live 25 April 2023
ZIL has risen above $0.035, after the announcement of Zilliqa v2.0 last week, which adds Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), compatibility with the Zilliqa primarynet.
#EVM On April 25, 2019, compatibility will be available on the Zilliqa Mainnet!

As mentioned in a blog post The upgrade, which will be live on April 25th, 2023, includes full compatibility for Solidity apps as well as seamless transfers of ZIL to EVM dApps or wallets including MetaMask.
The upgrade is also set to improve Zilliqa’s speed, scalability as well make it easy for developers to build on the blockchain. Fees on Zilliqa will be cheaper than Ethereum by multiples.
Zilliqa Price Prediction: What Next ZIL?
Zilliqa has grown significantly. With more than $5.5 billion in ZIL staked and over 4.5 million unique address, as well as more than 47,000,000 transactions, it’s clear that the platform is thriving. There could be a new push from developers, and the community has high hopes for what EVM compatibility following Zilliqa 2 could mean to ZIL’s price.
Due to the weakness in the market over the last 24 hours, the ZIL/USD was trading around 4% higher over the week. If you’re looking at price predictions, a break higher will result in fresh ZIL buy pressure. This could help bulls reach $0.46 and $0.60.
