Zen Protocol

A blockchain built for finance

Zen is a decentralized financial platform, built from scratch with the goal of providing people with a secure, scalable and useful infrastructure for creating their own financial instruments, and trading them directly without intermediaries.The Zen blockchain is secured by multiple proof-of-work algorithms, with token-holder voting on the balance between them. Multi-hash mining creates robust incentives for miners to deliver efficient, reliable security.Zen smart contracts are written and secured by a subset of the F* functional programming language, allowing users to: A) Prove the amount of resources a contract will consume and provide the necessary fees for running the contract to miners, removing the need for a “gas” based system.B) Prove their contracts meet a given specification, meaning they can prove the contract will definitely do (or not do) something given a specific set of parameters.The Zen platform comes with a built-in solution for oracles, which provide contracts with useful real world data.Finally, Zen is integrated with the Bitcoin blockchain, allowing contracts to observe and respond to native bitcoin transactions

Roadmap

1

IDEA IS FORMALIZED Adam, Nathan, Ronen, Sharon, and Ash come together. The idea of a UTXO based bounded computation language is formalized.

2

TECHNOLOGY STACK IS CHOSEN Work begins. Started to work on how we do a cost model for contracts. We choose F* and start work on the contract language. Nathan presents Zen for the first time at the china-israel innovation summit.

3

COST MODEL COMPLETED Start working on an elaborator. Start developing libraries.

4

SMART CONTRACTS AND ORACLE IN C# Continue developing libraries, begin developing contracts. Integration of ZF*.

5

SMART CONTRACTS AND ORACLE IN C# Continue developing libraries, begin developing contracts. Integration of ZF*.

6

REFACTORING Developing contracts. Testing ZF* builds. Evaluate cost using dependent types and an exported cost function.

7

TESTNET Implementation of: Decentralized multi token UTXO blockchain. Smart contracts with: Formal verification Computational Boundaries Compiled execution Active Contract Set GTK GUI and contract editor Headless client with a terminal user interface Co

8

RELEASE CANDIDATE We will take our current testnet and enhance its robustness: Refactoring Bitcoin Integration Improve the UX/UI experience: Insert the demo site to the wallet. Create a domain name system and a customized distributed hash table to assis

9

GENESIS BLOCK Multi hash mining Voting system Non outsourceable proofs + smart contract to assist miner variance. Difficulty discounts? Robust APIs and SDKs Project documentation Work with implementing the use cases of our strategic partners

10

ECOSYSTEM BUILDING Implementation of multiple use cases and a high speed decentralized exchange Market research Hardware wallet integration Wallet overhaul: We want a multi seed cross platform experience The basis is a USB-C open dime style hardware wall
