Horizen Crypto Brief History

Horizen is a Zclassic fork, which in turn arose from the separation of the Zcash blockchain. The founder of the project is Zen Blockchain Foundation (ZBF) established as a non-profit company in Delaware.

The ZenCash platform was launched in May 2017 without an ICO or pre-mining. 

In August 2018, ZenCash founders announced an expansion of the existing brand, in which the project changed its name to Horizen.

Horizen Coin Features

It differs from other cryptocurrencies due to the following features:

  1. A huge multi-tiered node system with over 40,000 fully distributed nodes provides users with high security, reliability, and speed of the network.
  2. It's the first network enhanced with TLS end-to-end encryption between nodes for maximum safety.
  3. Proof-of-Work mainchain increases security and distributes ZEN crypto throughout the ecosystem.
  4. Users can feel safe thanks to the advanced Nakamoto Consensus with penalty features that protect against 51% Attacks.

How Zendoo Protocol Improves Horizen?

Zendoo is a decentralized and customizable sidechain protocol, offering features any of its competitors never had. This technology offers companies and individuals to launch blockchain apps with Horizen.

This protocol has a brand-new construction tailored to be compatible with the Horizen blockchain. However, it can be easily adapted for other blockchain systems. Thanks to it, everyone can access decentralized cross-chain transfers. 

This protocol construction needs improvements in the mainchain core consensus protocol to enable cross-chain transactions. After these modifications, it'll be possible to deploy many sidechains reliably.

How To Mine Horizen Coin?

ZEN is the first cryptocurrency with full end-to-end encryption. The network architecture uses encryption at the node level. So, not only miners but also owners of secured nodes and super-nodes receive a portion of the reward from each cryptocurrency block. Video cards and CPU are no longer profitable, only ASIC owners mine the coin.

Mining is done by an algorithm:

  1. Choosing one of the pools.
  2. Signing up.
  3. Creating a wallet.
  4. Downloading the mining software recommended by the pool and entering the specified settings.
  5. Mining.

Horizen Crypto Prospects

Developers never stop improving their ecosystem. In 2021, they conducted a successful Zendoo testnet and its audit by third parties. They also developed Latus, a sidechain that uses recursive SNARKs for proving the correctness of the transfer. 

What's more, the project keeps entering into new partnerships. In November 2021, it started cooperating with HackerOne for improving security by rewarding developers with up to $10,000 in bounties for reporting vulnerabilities on Zendoo.

Since Horizen develops in different niches, it also partners with various businesses, like GameStation, a decentralized multi-chain gaming launchpad, and a marketplace. Together they will find new ways to leverage each other's technologies.

ZEN Coin Price Prediction

By opening access to Zendoo to all the users, founders will bring their project to a new level, which will increase Horizen price. As for PricePrediction, the ZEN crypto price will be over $315 in 2025. According to CryptocurrencyPricePrediction, Horizen coin price will reach $1,747.67 already in December 2025.
