Horizen: Privacy-focused Crypto and Sidechain
Horizen is a cool new blockchain / crypto community that I recently discovered. Here are some cool features:
- Privacy transactions
- Sidechain platform & dApp development
- Active Discord and Telegram communities
- ZEN faucet
What's really neat -- and potentially critical for mass blockchain adoption -- is that in addition to its main public blockchain, it hosts a sidechain developer platform. What's great here is that you can build private sidechains in the language of your choice, rather than being restricted to / needing to learn a new one like Solidity [Etherum], Michelson [Tezos], CX [Skycoin], etc.
Horizen's native token, ZEN -- While I have yet to see how this aspect matches up against the likes of Monero, Dash and Zcash, this is a major selling-point for privacy hawks like myself.
- Like Zcash, there are T (public/transparent) and Z (private/shielded) addresses
