Funding for Continuous Operations and Development

Treasury funds are held in trust and allocated by the Zen Blockchain Foundation, a non-profit entity entrusted with growing and maintaining the Zen ecosystem.

Promoting the Value of Individual Privacy Worldwide
Our platform will be managed through an inclusive, global distribution of decision-making authority and collaborative effort.
We live in an information-based society where individuals outsource management of their most private data, unaware that their data HAS VALUE and that its security IS IMPORTANT.
We're working to build infrastructure that users can use trust to secure and store their wealth, identification data, communications, and transactions.
Communicate Any Type or Size of Information
Zen private messaging integrates with IPFS (https://ipfs.io/) for distributed publishing and information access.
IPFS is the Distributed Web. A peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol to make the web faster, safer, and more open.
Any type of information in multiple formats can be published to IPFS, then linked to and messaged by Zen private and secure communications.
Integrating with IPFS Helps Build the Internet's Next Web
IPFS remains true to the original vision of the open and flat web, and delivers the technology which makes that vision a reality.
IPFS powers the creation of diversely resilient networks which enable persistent availability with or without Internet backbone connectivity.
IPFS provides historic versioning (like git) and makes it simple to set up resilient networks for mirroring of data.
