, the privacy-oriented blockchain technology platform, has released Sphere by Horizen, a highly-secure cryptocurrency wallet with unique features, that give users even greater control over their sensitive data and transactional information.
Sphere by Horizen incorporates unprecedented features in a cryptocurrency wallet, including secure messaging between users and the ability to toggle between light and full clients. The launch represents the next step in Horizen’s mission to promote usability, financial privacy, and secure communications around the world.
“The mass adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrencies relies heavily on the industry’s ability to simplify the technology for everyday use. As an easy-to-use, state-of-the-art wallet, Sphere by Horizen is a significant milestone toward achieving that goal, improving access to key privacy-focused applications of the Horizen platform, such as ZenChat. We firmly believe that everyone deserves the right and ability to protect their digital identity. With the launch of Sphere by Horizen today, the community can leverage unique features with cutting-edge security to take greater control of their digital identities.”
Robert Viglione, Co-Founder and President of Horizen
Available on desktop, Sphere by Horizen is one of the few cryptocurrency wallets to let users switch between a full or light client or use a web client for sending, receiving, and storing ZEN. The wallet is designed to meet a variety of user preferences, offering options for enhanced control of data privacy and convenient, low-data peer-to-peer payments. Sphere by Horizen serves as the launching point for services that use ZEN for transparent and shielded transactions and integrates Horizen’s ZenChat application to enable private messaging between users. The wallet is also deterministic, meaning if a user loses their account, they can restore their cryptocurrency funds through a user-friendly process involving a unique 24-word phrase.
“Sphere by Horizen drastically improves on current standards for the user experience of cryptocurrency and blockchain applications without sacrificing technological innovation or security. The application will act as universal point of access for node operation, cryptocurrency storage, private communications, and peer-to-peer payments, markedly simplifying access to services on the ZEN blockchain. We look forward to continually develop new features to bolster Sphere by Horizen, including a multi-currency wallet, MultiSig support, human-readable addresses, and the ability to manage secure and super nodes on the platform. ”
Horizen User Experience Director Gustavo Fialho
Horizen is a technology platform that provides everyone with privacy and complete control of their digital footprint. Launched in May 2017, the platform enables real-life uses beyond the ZEN currency, including the ability to privately chat with others and eventually to enable users to publish information and go anywhere on the web, with complete privacy.
