What is Horizen? (ZEN)

Horizen is a blockchain platform with a leading-edge privacy technology that provides everyone with privacy and complete control of their digital footprint. Horizen did not conduct an ICO or a pre-mine.

The Horizen platform enables real-life uses beyond our currency.

We are working toward the day when anyone will be able to build privacy-based applications on the Horizen platform and generate income from them. This will allow Horizen to bring thousands of real-life services to people. Services that provide them with freedom and everyday utility unlike anything ever available to them before.

Sphere by Horizen
Our cutting edge flagship product!

The technical and marketing teams have worked extremely hard to make sure Sphere by Horizen helps bring cryptocurrencies to the masses. We focused on creating a simple-to-use and powerful product that people will enjoy.

Sphere by Horizen is a launching point for most Horizen services. To start, it supports both transparent and private transactions. The wallet is deterministic, meaning if you lose your account, you can restore your cryptocurrency funds through a user-friendly process involving a unique 24-word phrase. However, it’s not just a wallet. It is a multifunctional app that will also provide features like secure messaging and the ability to switch between a full or light client. In addition, the app will continue to grow and add new functionalities in the near feature.


 Gustavo Fialho, our user experience director, said: “Sphere by Horizen drastically improves on current standards for the user experience of cryptocurrency and blockchain applications without sacrificing technological innovation or security. The application will act as universal point of access for node operation, cryptocurrency storage, private communications, and peer-to-peer payments, markedly simplifying access to services on the ZEN blockchain. We look forward to continually develop new features to bolster Sphere by Horizen, including a multi-currency wallet, MultiSig support, human-readable addresses, and the ability to manage secure and super nodes on the platform. ”
