Horizen Co-founder Rob Viglione and Director of R&D Aberto Garoffolo present our first milestone breakthrough on our technological journey – Horizen Sidechain Alpha.

Horizen Sidechain Alpha is the first milestone in achieving our vision of creating an application rich environment that will bring blockchain benefits to life, including privacy and decentralization. Horizen is built from a community with a strong ethos of privacy being a natural right. This new research and development direction is going to allow Horizen to have unbounded design opportunities while paving a more resistant path to achieve data privacy and freedom.

Horizen has evolved significantly from its birth as ZenCash in May, 2017. This evolution is accelerating as our technological frontier expands and the environment in which we find ourselves changes. Therefore, along with the release of this milestone of our sidechain solution, we are also excited to re-introduce Horizen with a new whitepaper – A Blockchain Platform for Fully Customizable Decentralized Applications.
