Horizen’s 51% Attack Solution


#1

The Rise From A Malicious Attack

Horizen is working hard to secure our network and prevent 51% attacks. Our engineering team improved the original Satoshi Consensus algorithm by creating a penalty mechanism to punish malicious miners. We hope this can be a long-term solution that will protect all proof-of-work coins that use the Bitcoin consensus.
