Zendoo allows developers to create bespoke public or private blockchains with unmatched scalability and flexibility.

Horizen, the zero-knowledge blockchain platform that provides tools for developers to create bespoke private or public blockchains, has announced the mainnet release of its cross-chain protocol, Zendoo.

Zendoo is a unique interoperability protocol and scaling solution that promotes an ecosystem of independent blockchains and decentralized applications (DApps) for real-world use cases. With Zendoo, developers can create custom zk-SNARK compatible blockchains that deliver massive throughput without compromising decentralization.

While blockchains have integrated millions of users, their growth has come at the expense of security and decentralization. With every batch of new wallet addresses comes an increasing risk of nodes disconnecting, operating smart contracts, or skyrocketing gas prices to levels inappropriate for everyday 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 independent but interconnected blockchains.

“Zendoo pushes the boundaries of what is possible for decentralized networks by introducing new levels of flexibility and scalability never before seen in our industry. This enables more transparent and secure networks for the storage and exchange of valuable data or assets while reducing costs and settlement times between transactions, ”said Rob Viglione, co-founder and team leader. of Horizen. “I firmly believe that our patience and long-term focus on creating the most decentralized and privacy-friendly system will be hugely profitable as the traditional economy begins to reap the benefits of blockchain technology within months. and the years to come. “

Zendoo is the culmination of years of hard work to redefine what it means to achieve the scalability and decentralization of blockchain. With Zendoo, developers can choose consensus, privacy, and speed, and customize their blockchain’s crypto-savings.

“Zendoo unlocks the potential of blockchains to scale through the creation of multiple parallel networks that operate independently and can be customized for speed, privacy and consensus. Our highly flexible system increases the design freedom and ease of use of blockchains while introducing advanced technologies such as zero-knowledge evidence to preserve data privacy and SNARKs to enable communication with any type of sidechain. evolutionary way, ”said Alberto Garoffolo, Horizen engineer. director. “These features are essential to build an unlimited and inclusive crypto-economy for all. With Zendoo, Horizen now enables the creation of blockchain applications without binding to a specific architecture, but at the same time, it enables decentralization, scalability and security.

Projects currently building blockchain solutions on Horizen include Celsius Network, Dash, IOTA, HeroEngine, GameStation and more.

Learn more about Zendoo

Zendoo allows developers to create tailor-made private or public blockchains that solve the challenges of today’s real world with the flexibility to seize the opportunities of tomorrow. Zendoo-based blockchains can take advantage of the following ecosystem benefits in their design:

  • Without authorization and decentralized;

  • Fully customizable with a configurable crypto-economy;

  • Auditable with the enhanced privacy features of zk-SNARK.

The backbone of the zero-knowledge blockchain network is Horizen’s highly secure and decentralized public backbone powered by Horizen’s native cryptocurrency, ZEN, and powered by the largest node infrastructure of over 47,000 nodes. The Horizen backbone is also secured by an enhanced Proof of Work consensus mechanism with enhanced 51% protection against attacks.

About the Blaze SDK

Blaze is Horizen’s answer to how developers and traditional businesses can leverage blockchain technology to improve their business. It is an all-in-one SDK that allows developers to launch high-speed blockchain over the Horizen network to achieve high transaction throughput. Horizen’s Blaze SDK will be released a few days after the release of the Zendoo mainnet.

In addition to the Blaze SDK, Horizen will release its Latus SDK, an authorization-free SDK that enables the integration of fully decentralized blockchains and Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) for Ethereum smart contract compatibility. Both are expected to be available in 2022.

Horizen community celebrates launch

The Horizen community celebrates the biggest milestone in the history of the project through a live virtual event with a gift of the native ZEN token. The party invited the Horizen team and industry leaders as guest speakers. The event will be broadcast live on December 3.
