Horizen Partners with Auros to Enhance Liquidity for its EVM-Compatible Smart Contracting Platform, EON
We are excited to announce our partnership with Auros, a global algorithmic trading and market-making firm, have entered a strategic partnership that will increase widespread access to $ZEN in preparation for the launch of the EON ecosystem, Horizen’s new EVM-compatible smart contracting platform.
The partnership is set to drive significant growth for the EON ecosystem. Enhanced liquidity for the $ZEN token across centralized and decentralized exchanges, underpinning many functionalities of the EON ecosystem, will increase opportunities for traders, DeFi users, and builders to participate in one of the fastest growing layer-0. Besides instant liquidity provision, this long-term partnership will extend beyond the $ZEN token to future projects building on EON, providing bespoke support based on the unique needs of each project.
“Liquidity for any ecosystem token is not only essential for seamless trading, but also key to unlocking the utility and potential of innovative smart contract platforms, advancing the overall growth of digital assets. Bringing our proprietary trading technology and strategies to Horizen’s EON, we are proud to expand the availability of liquidity in both the platform and the $ZEN token, delivering more value for all of its users. Beyond liquidity provision, this partnership also represents a significant step and a new hope for the decentralised ecosystem as we jointly work towards a more resilient future for digital assets.”– Ben Roth, Chief Information Officer and Co-founder of Auros
As a major market participant trading upwards of several billion dollars daily and integrated with dozens of venues, this partnership is underpinned by Auros’ algorithmic and high-frequency heritage. Their distinctive, partnership-oriented approach to liquidity provision is designed from the ground up, incentivizing Auros to ensure that the liquidity for the token matches the growth of Horizen EON.
“We are thrilled to join forces with Auros, a market leader in algorithmic trading and market-making services. Their expertise in bespoke liquidity solutions will undoubtedly enhance the EON ecosystem. More importantly, the partnership deepens cornerstone liquidity in the ecosystem, delivering more value to our users and enabling seamless trading experiences that will drive the growth of EON as the premier platform for traders and DeFi enthusiasts alike. Together, we are committed to shaping the future of decentralized finance and setting new industry standards.”– Rob Viglione, Co-founder of Horizen and CEO of Horizen Labs
Horizen’s EON is a fully EVM-compatible smart contracting platform and is the first of many smart contract sidechains on the Horizen ecosystem. The integration of Auros’ market-making services will serve to cement EON as an accessible yet valuable network for traders and DeFi users.
Horizen EON is currently live on its permanent public testnet, Gobi, and is supported by a network of products, integrations, and tools, including Auros. With the collaboration between Horizen and Auros, the EON ecosystem is set to welcome a wealth of dApps and services in the coming months.
