Roadmap & Achievements

Latest update - February 1st, 2024

2024 and Onwards

Key Highlights For 2024 And Onwards:

  • Stop Loss & Limit Orders: Recognizing the essential nature of stop loss and limit orders in futures trading, we’re actively working on their integration to ensure responsible and secure futures trading. After the successful testing of stop loss and limit orders, we will launch the Futures exchange along with both of these features.

  • AI Trading: Pioneering AI-featured trading in the decentralized space, we’re excited to partner with AlphaNet by Phoenix Global, setting a new standard for AI trading in the market.

  • Easier Onramps: Introducing collateralized Loans/shorts and zAsset wrappers to offer new DeFi onramps to zAssets, simplifying the process and increasing overall liquidity. Users can directly convert assets like BNB to zBNB without the need to first buy HZN.

  • Introducing a “smart account manager” for enhanced margin management. This system will interact with protocol contracts, enabling limit orders and stop loss functionalities. Additionally, it holds potential for introducing quality-of-life features such as using alternative forms of collateral and automated conversion to zUSD via DEX.

  • We are also looking into various social programs, one of which is a referral program. This would allow advocates to earn passive income from referrals, contributing to the growth of the protocol.

  • Another feature that is being explored, and which is already being water tested on the testnet and trading competition, is social trading, including leaderboards.

Please note that the features listed for 2024 and beyond are our top priorities, chosen based on feedback from our recent community call. This list may evolve as we gather more community feedback, align with market needs, and respond to evolving product demands.

Long-Term Exploration

Furthermore, we want to present a secondary list that is currently under exploration as our second priority. It is essential to acknowledge that this list is subject to potential changes at any given time, influenced by community feedback, product-market fit, and evolving market demands.

  • Automated AI Trading

  • Copy Trading

  • Off chain notification system

  • Profit Making Strategies / 1-click strategies (i.e. 1-click arbitrage strategies)

  • one-click hedging

  • C-Ratio automation for HZN stake-and-forget experience

  • Cross-chain deployments via CCIP

  • Mobile application

2024 Objectives

Here are Horizon Protocol's 2024 objectives, shaped by insights from 2023.

UX-Driven Derivatives Powerhouse

Our primary mission centers around providing the community with a derivative powerhouse with UI simplicity, ensuring everyone has the best user-experience that’s available on the market. This involves expanding derivative options such as futures/spot trading, staking, borrowing, hedging, diversifying portfolios, or introducing one-click arbitrage. The platform acts as a gateway, enabling users to access the real-world economy through secure and efficient synthetic assets. Additionally, we aim to enhance HZN accessibility through 2 centralized exchanges (CEX) listings for 2024 and fiat on/off ramps to ensure a smoother onboarding experience for users.

Competitive Perpetual DEX with Cutting-Edge Features

We are dedicated to constructing a top-tier, competitive decentralized perpetual futures exchange. Beyond offering deep liquidity with self-custody and low fees, we aspire to introduce cutting-edge features such as AI trading, details of which can be found in the product section.

Futures Exchange as Primary Revenue Source

A pivotal aspect of our strategy involves positioning our Futures exchange as the primary revenue source for the protocol and stakers. This approach not only sustains the protocol but also stimulates growth within our ecosystem.

Expanding our Community to trading focus

Finally, integral to our mission is the expansion of our community by attracting and inviting more traders to our platform. We firmly believe that growing a community focused on trading not only benefits individual traders but also contributes to the overall success of our ecosystem.
