..... Latin American nationals are the most promising targets of privacy coins. DASH is a good example, with amazing growth in the continent, in particular Venezuela. I wish that Horizon team would already have solid plans to expand the coin to Venezuelans in order to help them improve their financial income.


It would be wonderful to see Horizen start expanding across the earth as more and more merchants in many many countries start accepting Horizen for selling everything from toothpaste to automobiles.

Go Horizen !!!

Sincerely,  GlobalProtection

Secure Horizen Node Owners Of The World Unite !!!
Horizen BD team is working on this. We need more merchants and more adoptions, as it is crucial for every project. Better distribution and usability.
It is not an easy task but we could say blockchain technology just started to conquer businesses around the World, so there is a lot of space for various solutions and integrations.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Horizen moving up up up in the top 100 on coinmarketcap dot com.

Lots of people buying while many other coins are red.

Go Horizen !!!

It is not strange to see people bought Horizen coin like this, because the coin is a good one, good in its technical innovation, and in its strong communities.
Whatever coins you have intention to invest, let's pay your attention on their communities. If they have big and solid communites (not mostly cheaters and scammers), and have continous real, meaningful events, you should spend money to invest. Horizen, fortunately, satisfies both two requirements (in my opinion), that are technical innovation and strong communites. So, let's step in.

The privacy coin of the future must be able to do more than move money.

• It must have built-in messaging.
• It must allow anonymous data publishing and storage.
• It must have end-to-end encryption and be unblockable.
• It must be able to handle the anonymous transfer of money.

Can anyone tell me if Horizen completely fulfilled these goals given above?

Zen has a large variance of finding blocks, sometimes translations take a very long time. That's why it's not coin of the future. Also, developers receive 20% of the issue, it is certainly better than Bank, which receives 100%, but still it is not best way.

Can anyone tell me if Horizen completely fulfilled these goals given above?

1. Horizen had stand alone application called zenchat from the beginning https://www.horizen.global/zenchat/ .
"ZenChat is the most secure messaging application on the market and can be used as a standalone product or embedded within our Wallets."  Now this functionality is integrated in a multifunctional app wallet Sphere by Horizen. https://www.horizen.global/spherebyhorizen/Sphere


2. Zen as cryptocurrency (forked from Zcash) and main product of the platform has all abilities as Zcash.
https://www.horizen.global/zen/ You can choose between transparency and privacy using regular (T) or private (Z) addresses.

Other features are in progress, they are depending on Sidechains..Please check Road map.

Scaling and improving of performances will come with BlockDAG

BlockDAG PoW system for mining on the main chain as we have announced many times, is the only real solution to decentralize mining.

 IOHK is still working on the BlockDAG study, it is part of the Horizen Road Map. Check Q4.
The BlockDAG implementation will be very complex and complete rewrite of our code so it's a huge project.
It will help solving the problem of centralization of hashing power around mining pools and you will be also able to solo mine.

Can someone list all the reasons why Horizen is better than Bitcoin?  This is something I would really like to see. Even if it is not better security wise right now, perhaps it will be just as good security wise or even better in the future for reasons that only an expert can explain to us. Perhaps right now or in the future it clearly will be better than Bitcoin both in use case and as a store of value. So I ask an expert to be bold enough to answer my questions about this. Thank you.

 Thank you to everyone who upgraded to ZEN 2.0.17.


Can you please alert the creator of the Arizen wallet about this so that they upgrade their wallet?  Also alert us here, when the Arizen wallet creator says something about upgrading their wallet.  Thank you sir for all that you do on behalf of ZEN and this forum.  
Cool

Use the latest wallet update: https://github.com/ZencashOfficial/arizen/releases/tag/v1.2.2
Btw, Arizen is the light wallet, not a full node, so there is no particular action regarding the fork.

Number of Nodes
Horizen has one of the most distributed node systems, with 18k Secure and 2.6K Super nodes https://www.horizen.global/zennodes/
Bitcoin has 9464 Nodes https://bitnodes.earn.com/
Ether has 9020 Nodes https://www.ethernodes.org/network/1

Horizen Secure and Super Nodes enable a distributed and reliable cryptocurrency system that encrypts inter-node communications.
Horizen node communication looks like any other encrypted internet traffic, instead of like Bitcoin traffic.

ZEN Node operators are incentivized with 10% in total 20% for both class of nodes.
BTC nodes are not incentivized.

Shielded transactions
- Horizen as a platform enables you secure communications and deniable economic activity, so far.
- ZEN is  built on zero-knowledge Succinct Non-interactive ARguments of Knowledge (zk-SNARKs)
Code:
There are three anonymity implementations currently available first is zero-knowledge proofs.
The second based on gmaxwell's CoinJoin idea (such as mixing services for Bitcoin or the altcoin Dash).
The third CryptoNote are ring signatures that mask sender identities by mixing and one-time keys that make transactions unlinkable.

In the case of ZEN you can choose between two types of transactions:

T-transactions are traditional blockchain-recorded transactions controlled by a private key in a wallet. These are derived from Bitcoin and enable rapid compatibility with exchanges, wallets, and other Bitcoin-derived ecosystem applications.

Z-transactions  are transactions sent to shielded addresses. Balances in shielded addresses are private. If sending to one or more shielded address, the value stays private but any transparent addresses on the receiving end will deshield the token and reveal the value received on the blockchain. The input shielded addresses and whatever the value was sent from one or two of these remains confidential when deshielded.
Horizen supports combining of those two different types of transactions

Bitcoin has only transparent transactions and this is the biggest weakness of BTC!

Sustainable economic models
Horizen has a sustainable economic model.  Horizen using a community governance model. In the Horizen network, 20% of the tokens are allocated for community development, marketing, maintenance, and other costs paid for out of the treasury. This ensures that there are always enough resources available for growth.


Horizen have 24/7 support with real humans behind.
Horizen Team is putting a lot of efforts into rising of awareness through the building of Horizen Academy. https://academy.horizen.global/

BTC is dependant on voluntary work. This is still a couple of thousands of developers who are contributing. Grin

Horizen is platform!
In progress:
- Sidechains allow everyone to introduce exciting new functionalities by developing blockchain-based applications that are able to safely exchange coins with the mainchain in a decentralized and distributed way. Horizen’s sidechain SDK will hide the complexity of the cross chain transfer protocol and will provide a solid base for blockchain based application development.

Voting system
In progress:
- DAO decentralized autonomous organization will be one of many sidechain applications for the Horizen platform, demonstrating the power of dApps and decentralized, community based governance. This will be one of the first sidechains.

Scalability and mining centralization
In progress:
Horizen working on its own solution for this problem of mining centralization, blockDAG (prototyped by IOHK) is the next generation alternative to the blockchain using Directed Acyclic Graphs with the promise of unlimited scalability and instant transactions. In short, this can bring back Solo mining in the game. And this is one of the priorities of the Team.


BTC is better adopted in business and has the strongest network protected by enormous hashrate..
 Still, there is no solution for Scalability and mining centralization. BTC is not platform and has limited abilities, It is very hard to conceive consensus in the future for some major changes.
