If you like using digital cash, you are going to love this.
Your privacy game just got a whole lot better. Now everything you buy with bitcoin, you can now buy totally private digital cash. Those who already know about Horizen (formerly “ZenCash”) know why. For those unfamiliar, here is how the official Horizen website describes the cryptocurrency:
Horizen is a blockchain platform with a leading-edge privacy technology that provides everyone with privacy and complete control of their digital footprint.
Why does this matter? You can hand cash to someone and pay for your coffee, rent, or other services without leaving a mark behind for 3rd parties to track you. But with bitcoin, your entire transaction history is available to everyone forever. Not cool. Sure, you can use best practices to obscure your wallet balance by using new addresses for every transaction, but a person adept at following outputs can identify wallet addresses with a high degree of probability.
But what if instead, you could spend digital cash from your mobile wallet that came from — poof! — thin air? That is possible today with Horizen, a digital currency inspired partly by Dash, partly by ZCash, and partly by Voluntaryism. If you like these things, then get yourself a free Horizen wallet on your iPhone or Android right now. Download and run a full node on your computer. You will discover there is more to Horizen than just private payments.
And merchants will discover this too, after you ask them to accept ZEN for the things you want to buy! Try it for yourself: https://pos.anypay.global
