zzoo Protocol

Trade any asset on any blockchain with a decentralized network and wallet without giving up control of your private keys.


zzoo is a decentralized cross-blockchain wallet and peer-to-peer crypto-asset trading protocol. The protocol is enabled by threshold cryptography and is not-for-profit.
zzoo Protocol’s users effortlessly manage and trade tokens across any blockchain without forfeiting custody of their assets. zzoo Protocol operates as a decentralized network by independent maintainers that participate under a Proof of Stake framework.
zzoo Protocol was initiated in early 2018 by a team of entrepreneurs who envisioned a new trading platform that would meet market demands by leveraging the revolutionary potential of cryptography and blockchain technology.

zzoo Protocol
vs. DEXs


zzoo Protocol


Not-for-profit, self-organization
Fully decentralized
No market makers
Automatic matching of pair requests, on any blockchain

In November 2018, A report on DEXs; An Overview Of Decentralized Trading Of Digital Assets was published by Brooklyn Project. It highlighted the urgency of a truly decentralized solution for crypto trade.

zzoo Token



What is zzoo Protocol?

  • A cross-blockchain multi-token wallet and p2p trading platform.

  • A new type of secure wallet that frees the user from reliance on intermediaries and crypto complexities.

  • Automatic matching of swap requests without centralized intermediaries for any crypto-to-crypto trade.

  • Seamless trade through a neutral not-for-profit service.

Who are the main participants in zzoo Protocol?

  • zzoo Protocol is open to all users. Using the wallet is free, and operations like swap are charged a minimal (0.05%) fee.

  • Maintainers operate the protocol for the benefit of the end users. The maintainers enable the zzoo Protocol to function as designed, by running a special zzoo-distributed software on their servers.

How does zzoo Protocol work?

zzoo Protocol provides a p2p application that serves as a wallet that operates on a distributed network of computers and enables trade between tokens as well as the management of users’ private keys to the assets in their wallets. In line with the goals of the zzoo Protocol, the distributed network operators are required to provide and lock zzoo tokens at an appropriate value. The operators are compensated for their work with the fees (in zzoo tokens) incurred from transactions and paid by the protocol.

How does zzoo Protocol implement Threshold cryptography?

The zzoo trading application and the network cooperate in generating the private keys and collaborate in order to sign the requested transactions. This system puts the traders in control as their consent is always required, while they leverage the network to perform exchanges and trade crypto assets securely.

How does Poof of Stack integrate in zzoo Protocol?

Proof of Stake or PoS refers to the value of zzoo tokens that maintainers lock for a period of time (several weeks), enabling them to participate in operating the protocol and receive fees. Locked zzoo tokens, although owned by maintainers, cannot be traded or transferred until the locked period has come to an end. Each maintainer determines the value of PoS that it locks (as long as it is above the minimum required). The amount staked by a maintainer determines the type, frequency and volume of operations that maintainer performs and thus the amount of fees that he receives. At the same time, stake may be utilized under consensus in cases of malfunctioning or adversarial behavior on the part of maintainer.


Where can I find the roadmap?

Where can I go for more information?

In our white paper. Alternatively, please send an email to info@zzoo.io

Is your project open sourced?

Yes. The transition of the entire source code to open source development will start at a later stage and be conducted gradually after documenting core technologies.

How can I get involved?

You can get involved as a maintainer, by emailing us at info@zzoo.co to get more info


What is involved in becoming a maintainer?

As a maintainer, you are required to provide CPU-based servers as computing resources and stake zzoo tokens. You will be compensated in zzoo tokens collected through transaction fees.

When can maintainers start operating the network?

At the early stage of test-net. To participate or be put on the wait list, please contact info@zzoo.io
