What Is Horizen (formally zencash)?

Horizen is a platform focused on optional privacy (zk-SNARKs), finance, and a decentralized governance model (DAO) that envisions to “bring privacy to life“ for everyone. The founders Rob Viglione and Rolf Versluis' mission is to build “governance, economics, treasury, and privacy on a network level.“

Horizen forked of Zclassic, which is a fork of Zcash, while Zcash was originally forked of Bitcoin (therefore supply cap of 21 million ZEN). The Horizen network covers the essential aspects of the digitized world: ZenChat (a private messenger), ZenPub (an anonymous publishing platform), ZenHide (TOR-like endpoint masking), and economical sovereignty with ZEN, the native cryptocurrency coin used by the Horizen network.

Horizen Secure Node Requirements

It is crucial to keep the Secure Nodes up and running for at least 92% of the time to secure the Horizen network. If you meet these requirements, you are eligible to get a share of the daily reward distributed weekly by the Horizen network.

Configuration Requirements

Horizen Wallet setup

Read More

First of all, you need to download the official Sphere wallet here and install it on your desktop device. Next create your Horizen Sphere account and setup a wallet. You need support? We provide a detailed Horizen Sphere wallet setup tutorial.

• If you run a Secure Node by yourself, you are supposed to set up your wallet in full mode, that is, you have to download the entire Horizen Blockchain.

• If you use our staking service, it is sufficient to set up your wallet in light mode, that is, you do not have to download the Blockchain.

Technical requirements

Read More

You need to download, install, and activate the current version of zend and the node-tracking software. The zend P2P port must be configured with a valid SSL/TLS certificate that is externally accessible for other nodes to connect. This is mandatory to enable the node to respond to all network requests and allow it to update node configurations. Moreover, a static IPv4 or IPv6 address is essential  to keep the Horizen network safe and stable.

You also have to provide an email address to receive maintenance or update notifications from the tracking server.

Additional requirements

  • Create a non-root user
  • Installation and setup of packages
  • Setting up a Secure Socket Shell
  • Securing hosts
  • Configuration of certificates
  • Node Tracker Software Configuration
  • Configuring Service
  • Configuring Automated Certificate Renewals

Further requirements

Read More
  • Successfully complete a challenge that is sent randomly and automatically every 72 hours.
  • Processor power must be sufficient to solve a complex challenge in 200 seconds or less. The solution of each task costs 0.0001 ZEN from the anonymous z-address (so the recommended starting credit of 0.05 ZEN is sufficient for 750 days).
  • The current block size may not be undercut by more than 4 blocks.
  • The current version of zend and the node tracking software must be active and maintained/updated within the specified time period. Information about this must be sent in advance to the stored email address of the Host.
  • The Host has to transmit the current data to the Node Tracking Software at agreed times or if requested.
