We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be collaborating with Reef Finance, the builders of the Ethereum VM-compatible smart contract blockchain called Reef Chain, to bring Horizon Protocol assets to the Reef ecosystem. Тhis integration will bring synthetic asset creation, real asset oracles, asset verification, asset yield farming, lending and borrowing, and additional cross-chain bridges to Reef Chain. We’ll be bringing the best of both projects to each community, expanding the reach of Horizon Protocol’s ecosystem, and providing Reef users access to our innovative synthetic assets.

We know that we are already living in a multi-chain world, a paradigm that will…

The official launch of Horizon Genesis on BSC is just around the corner! In the meantime, we wanted to give the community a bit of a sneak-peak of the exciting new features available.

The improved minter for Horizon includes four main operations vital to the protocol:

  1. Stake HZN/Mint zUSD — Pool your HZN on Horizon Protocol and mint zUSD. Multiple preset Conservative, Neutral, and Aggressive minting strategies are available . You can also create your own strategy that best suits your investment style.
Stake HZN / Mint zUSD

2. Burn zUSD — Manage and maintain your debt/collaterization-ratio.

Horizon Genesis Testnet Update

We are happy to announce that our new version of Horizon Genesis is ready for a public testnet launch on Friday 11th of June.

We are happy to share the focus of development is Horizon Genesis.

Horizon Genesis is the core system that backs Horizon Protocol and its synthetic assets (zAssets). It will be released with the ability to create a staking position by staking HZN as collateral (minting zUSD) and managing that position by minting and/or burning zUSD to achieve a desired collateralization ratio. Users will be rewarded for staking and managing their position through Horizon’s inflation policy outlined here.

The Horizon Protocol team is working on many updates for Genesis in terms of UI and front-end, as well as smart contract updates…
