zk-SNARKs: The Top Practical Applications
Privacy is an important feature for blockchain users and one that Horizen addresses through our implementation zk-SNARKs. - By using zk-SNARKs, transactions and even entire blockchain applications can be verifiably private — a feature that has been highly requested by many in the space. zk-SNARKS have enabled privacy-enhanced projects to build their applications on Horizen and enable shielded transactions that preserve sender and recipient anonymity optionally. — zk-SNARKS: Explain Like I’m 5 - Imagine that you’re playing a game of “Where’s Waldo?” with three friends, with a $1,000 betting pool to be split among the winners. You and your friends are sitting around a table, and you’re all given a sheet of paper with the image of Waldo on it. You have to find Waldo in the picture — and as soon as you find Waldo, you need to show that you’ve found him, but without giving away his location or any hints. In other words, you want to prove knowledge of a fact without revealing any information beyond the validity of your claim. In our metaphor, you can take a piece of paper of the same size and mark a spot in the same position Waldo would be on the game sheet. You can then hide the sheet in a puzzle box, and once your friends solve the puzzle, they can see for themselves that you marked the point where Waldo would be. — zk-SNARKS: Technical Overview - On a more technical level, zk-SNARKs use a...

Why Privacy Technologies Are The Missing Link To Achieving Blockchain Scalability
It is with this understanding that Horizen has developed Blaze, an SDK that enables the deployment of ultra-fast and highly scalable permissioned blockchain networks with massive throughput that can solve real-world challenges and create opportunities in industries such as supply chain management, healthcare, gaming, and financial services. — More about Blaze - Blaze is a zero-knowledge enabled SDK for building high speed blockchain systems with massive throughput and security. It is Horizen’s answer to the question of how traditional companies can leverage blockchain technology to improve their business. Blockchains come in many different forms depending on the needs of the users who inhabit the network. The requirements of people who wish to engage in peer-to-peer transactions with other anonymous/pseudonymous individuals may not be the same as those of companies that wish to reduce costs and increase operational efficiencies by establishing a shared ledger between trusted industry partners and stakeholders. As a zero-knowledge enabled network of blockchains, Horizen provides best-in-class tool kits that enable developers to build highly customizable blockchains according to their needs. This includes dictating how fast the system needs to be and how much decentralization is ideal for their use case. Developers can launch a blockchain that is designed specifically to achieve higher transaction throughput by requiri...

Horizen’s Cross-Chain Protocol Zendoo Is Live On Mainnet — Build On The Zero Knowledge Network Of Blockchains - — Zendoo’s mainnet launch completes Horizen’s transition from a privacy-focused cryptocurrency to a zk-SNARK enhanced cross-chain platform enabling the creation of fully decentralized blockchains and applications - We are excited to announce that Horizen’s blockchain platform Zendoo, is now live on mainnet. You can now custom-build private or public blockchains on Horizen’s zero-knowledge-enabled ecosystem! 2021 has been the year for blockchains to prove their worth in the face of mass adoption. From defi trading and NFT marketplaces, we have witnessed an exponential rise in new wallet addresses and funds pouring into the crypto economy. While blockchains have onboarded millions of users, their growth has come at the cost of security and decentralization. With every batch of new wallet addresses comes an increasingly greater risk of nodes going offline, smart contracts becoming exploited, or gas fees skyrocketing to unsuitable levels for everyday users. These challenges represent the growing pains of mass adoption, which can be remedied by a network of blockchains that emphasizes decentralization and privacy freedom as a core feature while enabling scalability through independent yet interconnected blockchain networks. Zendoo is the culmination of three years of hard work to redefine what it m...

|Horizen Protocol Confirms ZEN to Lose Privacy Coin Status
Privacy coins have been facing intense regulatory crackdowns in recent months. The latest one to back-pedal on its core functionality is the privacy-focused network 'Horizen,' which announced that all privacy features will be removed at the consensus level following the approval of ZenIP 42204.
As per the protocol's statement, the deprecation of the Horizen mainchain shielded pools will be implemented as part of the upcoming mandatory software upgrade. The target release windows for testnet and mainnet are scheduled for August and September 2023, respectively.
Preventing Shielded Transaction Support at Consensus Level
In an official blog post, Horizen stated that the community approved ZenIP 42204 for the 'deprecation' of the protocol's mainchain shielded pools, which calls for the removal of shielded transactions with transparent inputs from the mainchain.
Following the deprecation of mainchain shielded pools, all privacy features will be eliminated from Horizen's main blockchain at the consensus level which means that its native token ZEN will no longer be a privacy coin.
Horizen cited global regulatory threats as well as other technical debts as the reason for the move.
'The purpose of the deprecation is to ensure Horizen does privacy technology the right and sustainable way to drive ecosystem growth and minimize risks. It proposes a solution to eliminate technical debt and avoid regulatory threats that can prevent the greater Horizen community from fully and freely partic...
