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 is a decentralized peer-to-peer trading protocol for crypto assets that implements a cross-blockchain wallet with a streamlined, user friendly interface.
The cutting-edge protocol was born from research and development conducted by top-tier cryptographers, mathematicians, and computer scientists.
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 is an ERC-20-compliant smart contract issued on the Ethereum blockchain and used by the zzoo Protocol.
zzoo Protocol requires that maintainers stake zzoo tokens in order to run the protocol. Minimal fees are paid by the users, the maintainers then get paid for their work.
zzoo token has an intrinsic value that correlates with the transaction volume on the protocol. The circulating supply of the zzoo tokens is fixed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
You can get involved as a maintainer, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more info
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.
At the early stage of test-net. To participate or be put on the wait list, please contact email@example.com
