What is Horizen?
Launched in 2017, Horizen is a customizable, decentralized sidechain protocol. The Horizen sidechain platform allows businesses and developers to quickly and affordably create blockchain applications leveraging Horizen’s fully distributed, secure architecture. It also encourages token mining and node hosting to encourage ecosystem adoption.
Using the Equihash (200-9) algorithm, users can mine the Horizen token, ZEN, through a proof-of-work protocol. Users can also purchase ZEN on most crypto exchanges. Additionally, Horizen incentivizes ZEN shareholders with block rewards: sixty percent to miners, twenty percent to the treasury, and twenty percent to nodes. And users can get free ZEN every twenty hours from the Horizen Faucet, a rewards feature that makes it easy for beginners to get into cryptocurrency.
Designed to overcome blockchain scalability and extensibility limitations, sidechains are a parallel platform that supplements the mainchain’s capabilities without the extra burden. Horizen’s Sidechain Protocol, zendoo, is a sidechain software developer kit that enables both public and private scalable, customizable blockchains for commercial applications.
The largest incentivized node network, ZENNodes, is a multi-tiered node system where each geographically dispersed node is paid for supporting the network. Node operators get ten percent of the total block subsidy rewards. The massive node network increases the Horizen platform’s scalability, reliability, and speed.
The Horizen platform is committed to creating a sustainable ecosystem through the sidechain protocol enabled developer toolkit, ZEN mining, its node network, and a growing offering of decentralized apps, products, and services, all based on a decentralized governance model.
