Arguably, one of the things holding back the widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies is its scaling problem.

Legacy cryptocurrency networks like Ethereum only can only handle about 15 transactions per second (TPS) while the Bitcoin network can only handle about 3 -5 TPS. 

In comparison, traditional payment methods like Visa and Mastercard can handle thousands of TPS.

Enter Zilliqa: a blockchain platform capable of processing thousands of TPS and more crucially, Zilliqa’s transaction throughput increases (roughly) linearly with its network size which bodes well for scalability.
