DOVER, Del., December 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Horizon, the zero-knowledge blockchain platform that provides tools for developers to create bespoke private or public blockchains has announced the release of their cross-chain protocol mainnet, Zendoo.

Zendoo is a unique interoperability protocol and scaling solution that fosters an ecosystem of independent blockchains and dapps for real-world use cases. Developers can create custom zk-SNARK-enabled blockchains that deliver massive throughput without compromising decentralization.

While blockchains have onboarded millions of users, their growth has come at the cost of security and decentralization. With each batch of new wallet addresses comes a growing risk of nodes going offline, smart contracts being exploited, or gas charges skyrocketing to levels unsuitable for users.

These challenges represent the growing difficulties of mass adoption, which can be solved by a blockchain network that emphasizes decentralization and freedom of privacy as a core feature while enabling scalability through to independent but interconnected blockchains.

“Zendoo is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for decentralized networks by introducing new levels of flexibility and scalability never before seen in our industry,” said Rob Viglione, co-founder and team leader of Horizen. “Our long-term focus on creating the most decentralized and privacy-friendly system will pay off massively as the traditional economy begins to catch up with the benefits of blockchain technology. »

Zendoo is redefining what it means to achieve blockchain scalability and decentralization. Developers can choose consensus, privacy, speed, and personalize crypto-economies to build blockchains that solve today’s real-world challenges with the flexibility to seize tomorrow’s opportunities. Zendoo-based blockchains can take advantage of the following advantages in their design:

  • Permissionless and Decentralized
  • Fully customizable with configurable crypto-economy
  • Auditable with zk-SNARK privacy features

Horizen’s all-in-one Blaze SDK will be released a few days after the Zendoo mainnet release. In 2022, Horizen will release both its permissionless Latus SDK, for fully decentralized blockchains, and an EVM integration for Ethereum smart contract compatibility.

Projects creating solutions on Horizen include Celsius, Dash, IOTAand Play station.
