Horizon Exchange hosts a marketplace of zAssets by utilizing industry-leading oracles to track their price movement.

The exchange allows for simple market trades of typical underlying assets including commodities, stocks, bonds, interest rates, currencies, crypto, and advanced derivatives trading of all kinds of synthetic assets, including forwards, futures, options, and swaps. Derivatives and synthetic assets allow investors to earn large returns from small movements in the underlying asset's price.

Once you have zUSD, you can go to Horizon Exchange and purchase the zAsset of your choice.

The Future of Horizon Exchange

Horizon Exchange facilitates the trading of synthetic assets and the development path focuses around access. Along with more trading tools, the main goal will be to create a myriad of zAssets that mimic the risk reward profiles of derivative assets all over the world to create a truly, borderless financial market for synthetic assets.
