About Horizen

Horizen (ZEN) is a crypto coin that is focused on privacy and scalability. It was originally called Zencash until its rebranding in 2018. During this time Horizen was developed as a decentralised autonomous organisation with services such as ZenChat, ZenPub and ZenHide, as well as the ZEN currency.

The Horizen token splits mining commissions - 60% goes towards the miners, 20% goes towards and the remaining 25% is contributed towards treasury, 10% goes to secure node operators and the remaining 10% goes to super node operators.

We don't yet offer Horizen (ZEN) as a payment method for flights, however, you can still use alternative crypto coins to secure your flights. Check out our guide on buying flights with cryptocurrencies for more information.

Why use ZEN to buy flights?


Because Horizen is a privacy-focused platform, therefore the ZEN cryptocurrency is a privacy coin and is forked from another privacy coin called Zcash. ZEN provides optional shielded transactions that use an advanced cryptography method called zk-SNARKS. With this, the sender, recipient and value that is transacted are hidden from all third-party viewers.


With Horizen, transactions are seamless and fast. There are 10 million transactions per second which is the peak of scalability within crypto. This means you can quickly book your flights using Horizen at Alternative Airlines.
