Horizen (ZEN) Will Be Listed On Atomars

About Horizen

ZenCash was founded by Rob Viglione and Rolf Verslius and was launched in May 2017. It was later rebranded as “Horizen” in July 2018.

In fulfilling its goal of providing full privacy, anonymity, and safety to its users, Horizen uses the following protocols: zk-SNARKS, TLS integration, distributed publishing, domain fronting, client-to-node encryption as well as end-to-end encryption. Users can through these technologies choose the level of transparency for digital assets, communications, and publications.

To add to the coin, ZEN, the Horizen platform also provides a chat platform and will eventually enable users to publish information and access anywhere on the web with total privacy.

Horizen is a fork of ZClassic (ZCL), a derivate of ZCash (ZEC), which originally a Bitcoin (BTC) clone. Horizen did not have a pre-mining neither did it conduct an ICO. 21 million coins is its fixed lifetime amount. Horizen is currently listed on Binance, OKEx, Bittrex, and Cryptopia among other exchanges.

How Does Horizen Work?

Horizen uses a domain fronting technique to hide the endpoint of communications. ZenPub, a commercial content distribution (CDN) network uses the HTTPS protocol to provide a secure standard for securely publishing documents. The ZenCash blockchain is protected by masternodes from network attacks. This validation systems help to make transactions faster and supports decentralized governance.

Multi-layer sidechains which store information about Super Nodes and Secure Nodes are supported by super nodes. The network of Super Nodes helps to validate and verify tracked information.

The ZenHide service helps in masking network traffic data to enable users facing hurdles with regulation and other filtering hurdles are able to connect to the ZenChat network without much hassle.
