Horizon (trading symbol HZ) is a decentralized business platform that enables users to do business online, as explained by their official website horizonplatform.io.
“Our goal is to provide real-world businesses and industries, small and big, a platform in which they can utilize blockchain technology based services.”, wrote horizonplatform.io.
The Horizon Foundation was established in 2015 to fund the Horizon project. Also, the core development team and the community members use the platform to guide the project into the future, said horizonplatform.io.
How does it work?
“Unlike most digital currencies where a few early adopters can effectively control the market, Horizon was created with a distribution system that is based on merit.”, according to horizonplatform.io. In other words, the company makes daily payments to people that help with node distribution. Also, they make sustainability payments to members who help the tech team or spread the Horizon message.
Horizon gives users the chance to install two types of wallets: a PC wallet and a web wallet available at GitHub (http://nexthorizon.github.io/hz-source/).
The platform has also created the Horizon block explorer that enables tracking of transactions, block finding and others. It is available at: https://explorer.horizonplatform.io/.
