Is ZED RUN safe and secure to play?

Yes. ZED RUN utilises Smart Contracts to record racehorse ownership, tracked through the Ethereum blockchain and ZT ERC 721 non-fungible tokens. All racehorse data (bloodline, genotype, gender, colour, number of offspring and race statistics) will be stored in the smart contract.

As ZED RUN racehorses are tokens that live within the blockchain, they can be bought or sold digitally, with a guarantee of ownership. In other words, you are the sole owner of a digital racehorse.
