Who we are
Horizen (formerly ZenCash) is an incentive-driven application platform with optional zk-SNARK based privacy features that aims to provide everyone with complete control of their digital footprint. Launched in May 2017, the leading-edge platform enables real-life use cases beyond the ZEN currency, including the ability to privately chat with others, publish information and go anywhere on the web with complete privacy. The platform itself is being built on top of a truly decentralised side-chain based system powered by Horizen’s multi-tier node network. The project utilises a sustainable funding mechanism and intends to empower all ZEN holders with decision making authority via a treasury governance system designed in collaboration with their partners, IOHK.
