Be rewarded for contributing to decentralization & privacy!
Our support team is available to walk you through node set-up.
The Secure Node network is integral to Horizen. At inception, the Horizen founders identified the following potential weaknesses in blockchain infrastructure:
Horizen Secure Nodes employ specific enhancements, over and above a standard blockchain node infrastructure, in order to overcome these weaknesses and do not function like a standardized node or masternode.
Fully end-to-end encrypted communication between Secure Nodes, providing enhanced security, privacy, and integrity
Encrypted communications prevent the differentiation of Secure Node network traffic from standard encrypted communications e.g. connecting to a secure (https) website
Aligned with the "power in numbers" principle, a dedicated reward pool (10% of the block reward) is provided as an incentive to Secure Node operators to run a Secure Node and maintain compliance. This reward increases the number of Secure Nodes on the network, further increasing resilience and decentralization.

The Super Node network introduces sidechaining and platform applications. This is a major improvement to the system that moves the project well beyond a simple cryptocurrency.
