What is Horizen?

Horizen is a blockchain platform with a leading-edge privacy technology that provides everyone with privacy and complete control of their digital footprint. We have a sustainable funding model with protocol-level solutions.

The Horizen platform enables real-life uses beyond our currency including the ability to privately chat with other people. Soon, Horizen will enable you to publish information and go anywhere on the web, all with complete privacy.

We are working toward the day when anyone will be able to build privacy-based applications on the Horizen platform and generate income from them. This will allow Horizen to bring thousands of real-life services to people. Services that provide them with freedom and everyday utility unlike anything ever available to them before.

Responsible Privacy™

At Horizen, we believe in and practice Responsible Privacy™

  1. Responsible Privacy™ means we offer you a choice of the privacy you would like to exercise in your activities connected to the Horizen platform. You can choose complete privacy for things like payments to friends and family. Or you can share your information with only certain people, like financial information for a mortgage. You can even let your data be public for things like yearly charitable donations.
  2. We believe everyone has the right to privacy. That’s why we educate about and provide access to privacy. The more that people understand and value privacy, the more it will be properly used and respected.
  3. We don’t condone or encourage criminal activity on our platform and believe privacy is an individual choice that should be used for the good and improvement of society and not for activities that could cause harm.
  4. Private means private. Horizen does not have access to any identifying information when shielded addresses are used.
