Horizen technology blueprint
We designed the Zen Academy to be the go-to place for education on blockchain, cryptocurrency, and online privacy. It doesn't matter if you are interested in learning about the topics out of curiosity or need to learn about them because your company is exploring blockchain technology. No matter your comfort level or interest: this project is for you.

In this chapter, we talk about transactions on the blockchain. The basics of transaction have been covered in previous levels, so we look at more advanced concepts here. First, we compare the two most commonly used balance systems, the UTXO and account model. Second, we look at cross-chain transactions in Horizen transferring assets between main- and sidechain. Lastly, we talk about transactions using payment channel networks like Lightning.
