Fully programmable with flexibility unmatched by others
Auditable transparency
Massive throughput without compromising decentralization

The Zendoo

Zendoo is designed with a novel sidechain construction tailored to be compatible with the Horizen blockchain, but it can also be adapted for other blockchain systems. It conducts secure and decentralized cross-chain communications without requiring the mainchain to track a sidechain to verify them.

Cross-Chain Transfer Protocol (CCTP)

CCTP determines how assets can be transferred between mainchain and sidechain. All sidechains employ the same unified CCTP, which is known by the mainchain.
