NTT DATA to Deploy Horizen EON Blockchain Certificate Signer Node


NTT DATA, a leading IT service provider and global innovation partner, has announced that it will deploy a Horizen EON blockchain Certificate Signer Node on its infrastructure. This node will help secure the Horizen EON network.

The Horizen EON is an EVM-compatible sidechain and smart contract platform built with Zendoo, a powerful ZK-enabled cross-chain transfer protocol. Developers can use it to build decentralized applications and access the Horizen ecosystem.

Commenting on this news, Francisco Spadafora, Head of Blockchain Competence Center EMEAL said, ‚ÄúContributing to public blockchains, running nodes, and validators is part of our strategy of working very closely with the public blockchain industry, supporting the growth of these ecosystems and providing the scalability capabilities that, as NTT DATA, we have. This is the first of several other initiatives we would like to launch with the crypto industry, and we are happy to have taken this important step with Horizen, in which we strongly believe.”

With NTT DATA joining the network, the Horizen EON blockchain now has 47 certificate signer nodes. These nodes are responsible for providing credibility to the transactions on the EON chain, ensuring decentralization, and signing backward transfer requests, allowing the flow of ZEN from the EON chain to the Horizen mainchain.

NTT DATA is an IT services provider and global innovation partner headquartered in Tokyo, with business operations in over 50 countries. Horizen is a layer 0 public blockchain that enables the zero-knowledge network of blockchains powered by the largest node system and a massively scalable cross-chain protocol, Zendoo.
