Horizon Genesis Testnet — Ready!

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.

Burn zUSD

3. Claim HZN — Claim to your newly rewarded HZN (test tokens for now of course).

Claim HZN staking rewards

Note: This is a testnet, with test tokens (HZN). There are no actual rewards distributed during this phase.

All actions are completed on the Binance Smart Chain testnet. Horizon Genesis supports Binance Wallet, Metamask, and TrustWallet.

The best way to understand a synthetic assets platform is to simply explore all the new features and functions of Horizon Genesis in a test environment! Try out each of the above functions. Keep in mind, this is NOT a final product and bugs/issues may exist. If you find any, please let us know.

Further, we would love to get your feedback on the platform — what did you like, not like, what would you change, or what did you find confusing?

This is a complex protocol, and we want to ensure it works and is tailored for everyone.
