Horizen’s mission is to empower people and bring the world together by building a fair and inclusive ecosystem where everyone is rewarded for their contributions.
Horizen’s sidechain and scaling solution is the first completely decentralized and fully customizable sidechain protocol on the market. The Horizen sidechain platform enables businesses and developers to affordably and quickly create real-world blockchain applications on Horizen’s fully distributed, secure, and privacy-preserving architecture.
Launched in May 2017, the platform enables real-life uses beyond its native cryptocurrency, ZEN, which is a mineable PoW coin available on major crypto exchanges. Users can securely store and transact ZEN using Horizen's flagship app, Sphere by Horizen, a multifunctional wallet that interfaces with Horizen products and services.
Horizen has a passionate worldwide community, a team of over 50 professionals, and an ambitious roadmap driven by continuous investments in cutting-edge research and development.
