Horizen EON Welcomes NTT DATA, Joining the Network as A Certificate Signer Node to Support the Growth and Security of the EON Network
We are excited to announce that a leading IT service provider and global innovation partner, NTT DATA, is deploying a Horizen EON blockchain Certificate Signer Node on the NTT DATA infrastructure, which will contribute proactively to the credibility, security, and robustness of the Horizen EON network.
Horizen EON is Horizen’s EVM-compatible sidechain and smart contracting platform, built with Zendoo, a powerful ZK-Enabled cross-chain transfer protocol. Horizen EON enables Web3 developers to both build decentralized applications easily, while quickly accessing the fast-growing Horizen ecosystem.

“Contributing to public blockchains, running nodes and validators is part of our strategy of working very closely with the public blockchain industry, supporting the growth of these ecosystems and providing the scalability capabilities that as NTT DATA we have.
This is the first of several other initiatives we would like to launch with the crypto industry, and we are happy to have taken this important step with Horizen, in which we strongly believe and with which we plan to undertake other joint actions to offer blockchain-based solutions to our clients.”– Francisco Spadafora, Head of Blockchain Competence Center EMEAL
What Are EON Certificates Signer Nodes and Why Are They Important
The Horizen EON chain will have a total of 47 certificate signer nodes. These signer nodes provide credibility to the transactions on the EON chain and ensure decentralization. They are responsible for signing backward transfer requests allowing the flow of ZEN from the EON chain to the Horizen mainchain.
