Technology

A massively scalable blockchain platform

Infrastructure

A robust infrastructure powered by the largest and most distributed node network in the industry.

Horizen’s multi-tiered node network has 40000 active nodes. It makes the Horizen platform extremely secure and resilient against malicious actors and power failures.

Horizen node operators receive 10% of the block reward.

Sidechain platform

A scalable general-purpose blockchain system with a novel Cross-Chain Transfer Protocol that enables an unbounded and fully decentralized sidechain ecosystem.

Sidechains enable blockchain scalability and extensibility by creating platform and application layers that are bound to the mainchain without imposing a significant burden.


SDK
Horizen Sidechain Solutions come with an open-source Software Development Kit (SDK)

Cryptocurrency

ZEN, the native cryptocurrency of Horizen, is the first cryptocurrency with fully end-to-end encryption at the node and internode level.

ZEN is a Proof-of-Work, Equihash-based, mineable cryptocurrency. It has an optional privacy feature that allows you to control your digital footprint. ZEN offers two different types of addresses:

T-Addresses

Regular addresses for making Bitcoin-like transactions, which are public and transparent on the blockchain.

Z-Addresses

Also known as shielded addresses, transactions between Z-Addresses are completely private and anonymous.
