The Zilliqa platform employs a unique sharded architecture to tackle the scalability issues experienced by other blockchains. Zilliqa can enhance the network’s overall throughput capacity by permitting multiple chains to process transactions concurrently.
In December 2022, the platform announced that EVM compatibility had been launched on a testnet, allowing smart contracts written in Solidity to be deployed natively to the Zilliqa blockchain. The next step after this testnet implementation is to bring the first complete release of EVM compatibility to the Zilliqa mainnet, which is set to go live at 08:00 UTC on April 25th, 2023.

However, the number of withdrawals has decreased significantly during the year, resulting in 10,936,284 unclaimed SUSHI tokens. Therefore, a Merkle Tree Clawback Proposal was suggested to clawback these tokens on April 23rd, 2023. This proposal was aimed at gathering community feedback on whether to execute the clawback and to decide on a timeframe for its implementation.
A three-month claim period has been granted after the implementation snapshot (which passed with 99.9% approval on January 23rd). After the deadline, the unclaimed tokens will be transferred directly to the treasury. The current clawback amount is near twice the amount of Sushi in the treasury.
Currently, SUSHI is trading at $1.03 after a 14.5% price drop in the past 7 days and has a 24-hour trading volume of $19 million.
The summary on the TA shows “sell” at 15 and the moving averages point to “strong sell” at 13.

This transition promises more significant advantages for the Helium Network, such as quicker transaction processing and fresh smart contract capabilities.
Consequently, the Helium Foundation and other participating organizations can now concentrate on enhancing the development of decentralized wireless networks. They aim to create new applications that promote economic efficiencies and reduce the digital gap without worrying about maintaining a L1 blockchain.

The 1-day TA look rather bullish, with the summary and moving averages showing “buy” at 10 and 9, respectively.
At present, opposing views are prevalent regarding the future trajectory of ADA’s value. Those who hold a bullish stance are optimistic due to various factors, such as the cryptocurrency’s well-established support level of $0.38, positive updates from its development team, and the increasing adoption of its blockchain technology.
In contrast, those with a bearish viewpoint contend that the recent rebound of ADA from the $0.38 support level could encounter formidable resistance at the $0.40 level, which has previously impeded its upward momentum.
Depending on their perspective, investors may choose to purchase ADA if it breaks above the $0.40 resistance level, short it if it is rejected at that level, or trade within the range of $0.38 support and $0.40 resistance.
ADA’s current price is around $0.385, with a 15% decrease in the previous 7 days, and it has a $237 million trading volume.
The TA from TradingView looks bearish, with the summary and moving averages pointing to “sell” with 9 and 5 signals, respectively.
