Introducing Blaze – Horizen’s Zero-Knowledge Enabled SDK for Deploying High-Speed Blockchains With Massive Throughput
Blaze is Horizen’s answer to the question of how developers and traditional companies can leverage blockchain technology to improve their business.
Many industries such as supply chain, international trading, finance, and payments produce large transaction volumes and require a system that can process transactions quickly with a great level of security and reliability. It is with this understanding, Horizen developed Blaze, a SDK that enables companies to launch blazing fast and highly scalable blockchain networks that meet real-world business needs.
Horizen provides a powerful blockchain deployment platform, Zendoo, with best-in-class tool kits that enable developers to build fully customizable blockchains with massive throughput. This includes the level of decentralization and speed is ideal for them.
Blaze is an SDK in the toolkit family that enables developers to launch high-speed blockchains on the largest node network that is designed to achieve high transaction throughput with up to 1,000 transactions per second per blockchain. The Zendoo platform can support up to 10,000 blockchains running in parallel.
Blaze is equipped with zero-knowledge technology which enables verifiable transactions without revealing underlying data or relying on 3rd party validators. This means that Blaze-created blockchains are highly secure, auditable, and data privacy-preserving to address real-world use cases. With such a high level of security, scalability, and reliability, Blaze is ideal for building a variety of novel solutions, including publicly verifiable supply chain networks, decentralized exchanges, or a gaming platform for securely trading in-gaming assets while offering a fast gaming experience similar to standard mobile games.
Blaze is coming to mainnet soon but is available on testnet now. Check it out today.
In addition to Blaze, Horizen is going to release another version of SDK, Latus, designed to achieve full decentralization with massive throughput. Latus is expected to be available in 2022.
Zendoo is Horizen’s cross-chain protocol that enables the zero-knowledge-enabled blockchain deployment platform.
Zendoo allows developers to custom build their own highly scalable and secure private or public blockchains with a level of flexibility unmatched by others. With Zendoo, developers have the freedom to fully customize their blockchains, including consensus type, speed, privacy, and crypto-economies. Blockchain built with Zendoo operate independently from the Horizen mainchain and can be designed to meet specific use cases.
