At Horizon, we’re on a mission to make the next generation of Internet economies fun, accessible, and for the benefit of all participants.

For the first time, gamers can easily and securely sell and trade their items. We’re also building a new platform, which consists of a blockchain development stack and smart wallet, so that other games and products can integrate blockchain with only four lines of code. Our platform makes it easy for developers and companies to access and build the next generation of Internet economies and experiences. Learn more at https://horizon.io
