The launch of the Zilliqa mainnet is getting closer and closer and this could be the main cause of the rise in the price of ZIL.
As often happens in the crypto world, important technological innovations bring great changes in the prices of tokens and cryptocurrencies.
Zilliqa has now risen almost 6% over the last 24 hours, as can be observed on Coinmarketcap.
The trading volume has also increased, from 174M to more than 183M in a day.
The launch of the Zilliqa mainnet is in fact scheduled for the end of January, precisely on the 31st, as can be read on the roadmap of the project.

Yesterday, the Zilliqa team announced on Medium that only one week is left for the mainnet. Currently, their focus is on security, which is obviously crucial for a blockchain.
