Zilliqa has also witnessed a rise in terms of its Google search volume. The coin had last witnessed such a spike in June when its staking went live.
The coin appears to be able to currently touch those heights as it has seen an increased interest level in recent times.

Zilliqa is the first blockchain platform to use sharding to offer its users access to more scalability and security.
Since its launch in 2017, the coin has gone on to add features like mining in 2019 before it went on to introduce staking earlier this year.
