Horizen's blockchain technology platform empowers users to transact and communicate securely through Sphere by Horizen, their flagship application. Horizen's native cryptocurrency, ZEN, uses advanced ("zero-knowledge") cryptography for optional privacy. Their sidechain implementation and Software Development Kit (SDK) enables the development of public or private secure and scalable blockchain applications utilizing Horizen's open source technology and public infrastructure.

Horizen and StakeHound recently partnered together to build a new DeFi bridge for ZEN. Through this partnership, StakeHound issued an ERC20 called StakedZEN, or stZEN. By using stZEN, ZEN holders are able to participate in the Ethereum-based DeFi ecosystem AND earn Horizen node rewards at the same time!
